       The only problem with visiting Sydney is fitting in everything you want to do and see. A well-planned itinerary can easily be upset by countless other sights and experiences that suddenly become "must sees" and "must dos" once you arrive. Of course, you won't want to miss the "icon" attractions'--the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge--but you should also check out the native Aussie wildlife in the Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Aquarium and get a dose of Down Under culture at the not-too-large Australian Museum. Also try to take time out to visit one of the nearby national parks for a taste of the Australian bush, and if it's hot take your swimsuit and towel to Bondi Beach
