Our Family’s One-Week Itinerary in Sydney, Australia

Last June, my family and I spent a week in Sydney, Australia. We intentionally took it easy and did not pack our schedule too tightly with activities; nonetheless, we went home hearts bursting with beautiful memories. For those who’ve been asking about our itinerary, here it is.

    • Hey! Congratulations on the wedding. I can’t wait to see photos! WordPress very helpfully transferred subscriptions to the new URL so I’m already subscribed to your new blog. I hope your entire family is settling in quite well. Yes, my son was with us in Sydney and he loved it, even went with us on a coastal walk (though he was asking to be carried near the end of 6 km lol). I think your Attilas will like Sydney too. X

  • Hi there! I’m going to Sydney with my elderly parents for 8 full days. I just might follow your itinerary and add a Canberra day tour and visit to a zoo. If I may ask, is there any reason you chose to stay overnight at the Blue Mountains?

    • Hi Sheila! We stayed overnight at the Blue Mountains because we didn’t want to rush through it — my parents are both seniors and we were also meeting up with my mum’s friend, who is also a senior — and we also wanted enough time to walk some of the nearby trails.
