Sydney is one of the most amazing cities of Australia and it has got so much explore.
 
 
There are numerous hotel options in the city that includes Quay West Suites Sydney, The Sebel Pier One Sydney and or more options you can visit here.
 
On the first day you can visit Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney Opera House, The Rocks, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Doyle Fishermans Wharf. 

Royal Botanic Gardens

(Source: ishatter)
Walking through the gardens and along the seawall is such a relaxed and quiet way to start your city experience - breathe in the harbour air and the trees as you go. The Royal Botanic Gardens is a major botanical garden located in the heart of Sydney, Australia. Opened in 1816, the garden is the oldest scientific institution in Australia and one of the most important historic botanical institutions in the world.

The Sydney Opera House is one of the glories of not only Sydney but also of Australia. The mesmerizing performing arts centre where many types of occasions take place is positioned on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, near to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The opera house is closest to the Sydney central business district and the Royal Botanic Gardens. The architect of Denmark Jørn Utzon has constructed this facility that opened in the year 1973.

No trip to Sydney is complete without a trip to Watson's Bay and a seafood splurge at Doyles. It's a tradition from the old days, when Doyles sold fish and chips to youngsters like myself, who marvelled at the huge sharks weighed in on the old wharf. Enjoy the sweeping views of the harbour. 
 
With this you can call it a day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep.

Day 6

On the second day you can head to Bondi Beach, Sydney Tower Eye and SKYWALK, Chinatown and Balmain.

Bondi Beach

Everything seems so playfully hedonistic here that even swimming seems like a chore. It is THE place in Sydney for 'people watching' - so much so that even the surfers spend a lot of time on their boards watching one another.

Sydney Tower Eye and SKYWALK

It's great to get a bird’s eye view of just how expansive Sydney is. From Sydney Tower Eye you can see all the way to the Blue Mountains and watch the storm clouds roll in from the south.

Chinatown

(Source: Paolo Rosa)
Chinatown is always busy, and a stroll down the main drag of Dixon st will leave you with the paradox of food choice. My preference is to walk another two blocks to the corner of Thomas and Quay streets where you'll find The Burlington Centre - the restaurants here are cheaper and very authentic.

Balmain

(Source: Eat.Drink.See.Do.)
Balmain, New South Wales is a suburb in the Inner West of Sydney, Australia. Balmain is located 6 km west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Municipality of Leichhardt. Beautiful old terraced houses, leafy streets and some of the best live music pubs in Sydney make Balmain well worth a visit. 
 
With this you end your day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep.

Day 7

The itinerary of this day should include Kings Cross and Manly.

Kings Cross

(Source: Daryl Fritz)
No matter how late in the night, you'll always manage to get a coffee or a drink in 'the cross.' Walking the main drag of Darlinghurst rd is worth it just for the experience, but walk further either to Macleay st or Victoria st to find the best cafes.

Manly

(Source: Hector Garcia)
Even if you've lived here all your life, taking the ferry to Manly and back remains a classic experience. Passing between north and south head, the open sea meets the harbour and you can literally feel the swell rise. Manly itself is like the Bondi of the north, but with less attitude. Except when it comes to surfing - which Manlyites claim was invented there!
 
After this you need to head back as you got your flight to Gold Coast.

Gold Coast

Day 8

(Source: JIGGS IMAGES)
Gold Coast city, Queensland, Australia is a buzzing den to Surfer's Paradise accommodating festivals, bars and restaurants with endless golden beaches. Tourists can enjoy all from fastest thrill and the world’s tallest rides to theme parks or splash around in swimming pools with water slides.
