Monterey is a city in the U.S. We've included these beaches for you: Del Mar Beach and Point Lobos. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ocean Avenue and Pacific Grove Shoreline Parkway Marine Refuge. There's lots more to do: look for gifts at The Cheese Shop, view the masterpieces at Carmel Art Association, savor the flavors at Pacific Grove Certified Farmers' Market, and enjoy the sand and surf at Carmel River State Beach.

To see photos, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, read our Monterey road trip site .

Sydney, Australia to Monterey is an approximately 19.5-hour combination of flight and shuttle. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 18 hours traveling from Sydney to Monterey. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in September, and nighttime lows around 15°C. On the 29th (Sun), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
