Why locals recommend it
There’s a fabulous charity run every winter from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach on streets, waterfront, and cliffs. It’s one of the world’s most popular road races, and the 14-km course is so good, it’s worth doing year-round. People dress in crazy costumes and do stunts to raise awareness for causes and surf lifesaving. You can find a map on the race’s website. The big hill about three quarters of the way to Bondi is called Heartbreak Hill, and it’s the undoing of many unsuspecting runners’ lead, so pace yourself. The good news is once you’re over that, it’s basically downhill to Bondi. Ocean and cliff views will distract you all the way to the beach.

“The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre at Sydney Harbour in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It is one of the 20th century's most famous and distinctive buildings Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the building was formally opened on 20 October 1973 after a gestation beginning with Utzon's 1957 selection as winner of an international design competition. The Government of New South Wales, led by the premier, Joseph Cahill, authorised work to begin in 1958 with Utzon directing construction.
