A group of 12 of us (3 teachers & 9 year 8 boys) intend to make a 4 day road trip from Melbourne to Sydney (fri-mon). We will make our way with one of the school buses so have the convenience & flexibility of stopping where we want when we want. We will leave early Friday arriving in to Sydney around 5pm and leave on Monday at midday arriving into Melbourne in the evening which will give us 2.5 days/3 nights in Sydney.
We regularly venture to beachside camp locations & stay in tents where the main activity is going to the beach, hiking, camp fires etc. As we will mainly be in the big smoke we need all the help & assistance of the resident Sydneysiders in deciding what to do & where to visit.
We will be in Sydney with a bunch of energetic & overly enthusiastic young boys so need some advise on activities to do in & around Sydney. We will most likely be based in or around Guildford in a school & can use public transport to get in to town or drive our minibus.
I believe it would make more sense for us to spend the whole time in Sydney rather than venturing on any side trips but not too sure on which way to go. Any ideas on places we could stop by on our way in to Sydney?
Can you guys please advise some places to visit & activities for time 3 days we will be in Sydney for. It will be most of the kids first time to Sydney so looking forward to the usual touristy recommendations as well as any others.
Thanks in advance as any help is appreciated.
