San Francisco

City by the Bay

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Get some historical perspective at Alcatraz Island and Grace Cathedral. Get a sense of the local culture at Golden Gate Bridge and California Academy of Sciences. There's still lots to do: engage your brain at Exploratorium, admire the masterpieces at Asian Art Museum, examine the collection at Cable Car Museum, and learn about all things military at USS Pampanito.

To find photos, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the San Francisco trip builder website.

Sydney, Australia to San Francisco is an approximately 17-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 18 hours traveling from Sydney to San Francisco. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Sydney in July: high temperatures in San Francisco hover around 26°C and lows are around 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel to Yosemite National Park.

There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Taft Point, trek along Lembert Dome, tour the pleasant surroundings at Panorama Trail, and take some stellar pictures from Washburn Point.

California's cities offer diverse attractions, from amusement parks and upscale shops to award-winning restaurants and innovative art galleries. Outside the state's big urban centers, places to visit include some of the nation's most rugged national parks, ancient forests, towering mountain peaks, and ski resorts. More than just a surfing destination famous for its beaches and winding coastal roads, California also boasts one of the world's largest economies, bolstered by the booming tech industries.
