Other than the various city attractions itself, Sydney has some easily accessed great beaches and national parks.
If you do a google on Sydney, you'll get a great number of sites and quite likely one called 100 best things for Sydney and you can choose to suit your interests and then report back all about how you enjoyed your visit.

The place which you can't forget to visit is Opera Theatre

Sorry! I am too late answering you because i am out of town
Do the opera house, darling harbour, bridge climb and Sydney harbour on the same day.

Do the morning bridge climb, then walk across the bridge to the opera house, you can see the harbour from the opera house. Then catch a ferry (?) to Darling harbour.

On the 2nd day do the blue mountains (takes a while to get there). You may see ads about getting there by train. But do NOT do this. Cityrail (Sydney train service) is terrible. The trains are disgusting, dirty, gross and just plain ew! They are NEVER on time and the tickets are expensive. $I.20 for one stop as a child?! I would recommend hiring a car.

On the half day go to Bondi. Go on a week day otherwise you won't be able to move! Also, get there earlier before everyone comes. There is a bus service, but again the public transport is terrible. Hire a car!

Hope you have a great time down under(:

I think are many places to visit in Australia, aside from the city there are other tourist spots outside the city like Kakadu National Park.
