Cronulla Beach, Wollongong (1 hour drive south of Sydney), Manly, Palm Beach, Victoria Bld and the city streets (don't drive in the city!!! Take a taxi or just walk around) - Woolloomoollo - Taronga Zoo and get there by ferry, Harbour Cridge, China Town, Padington Market, Market Place, the Museum, The Rocks (convict history), check out a nice lil restaurant called The Pony (in the Rocks), the Opera House, have a stroll in Circular Quay (best during day and towards evening), AMP Tower/Sydney Tower, Bondi... maybe, Bondi Junction, Blue Mountains, Botanical Gardens, the St Mary's Cathedral... the list goes on.

The Harbour Bridge Climb is a must! I found the Blue Mountains day trip a complete waste of a day. It's an expensive tourist trap. The food is overpriced and not very good, the souvenirs are tacky as ever, and the "attractions" are so crowded you can't possibly get a decent picture. Stay in the city and climb the bridge, then go shopping around the Rocks area.

The Harbour Bridge and the Opera House are must-sees, and the zoo is quite excellent if you're up for that kind of thing. Shopping in the city is pretty good too, although if you're not local it can be a bit disconcerting.

Don't climb the harbor bridge its a very expensive waist of money, you will get better views taking a ferry like everyone else is saying. Try all the small food shops, like Thai and Chinese, and Indian, they all are very good.

* Get on a ferry to Manly or to the Zoo and you'll see heaps of the sights (buy a daytripper ticket so that covers your train / ferry / bus requirements plus gives you a discount at the zoo!) * If you want to climb the bridge you have to book heaps in advance. There's also a pedestrian walkway if you just want to walk across and you can then explore milson's point (home of Luna Park) or get the train/ferry back to circular quay. * Have a picnic in the Botanical Gardens and walk around to Mrs Macquarie's chair for brilliant views of the Opera House & Harbour. (Don't worry about going into the Opera House, the inside is v.boring compared to the outside!) * Go up Sydney Tower for great views, but be wary of the queues. * Take the train up to the Blue Mountains and visit the Three Sisters, Echo Point and take a ride on the scenic railway into the valley (will need a whole day to do this or maybe stay overnight? the YHA is great!) * Personally I think Bondi is a waste of time. It's dirty (the suburb, not the beach), crowded and full of tourists. If you want great beaches head down to the south coast. * Chinatown is interesting and great for a cheap meal. * The Rocks are interesting if you're into history and the Ghost Tours through there are a blast! I think there are still markets there on the weekend, but I've been o/s for a while. There was talk of changing them to a fruit and veg market. I hope that didn't happen! I agree with Andrew - stay out of the shops! They're dangerous! If you want souvenirs there are plenty of shops around the quay area.

Well I would definitely reccomend climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge. It is a very exciting climb and once you get to the top there is a beautiful view.

You could go on a boat from Circular Quay to Manly Beach or maybe Tarronga Zoo. The botanical gardens are nice for a stroll. Darling harbour has some good but quite pricey bars (Great cocktails though). The Blue Mountains are only a train ride away. Of course there is the famous Bondi Beach that you can get to really easily on the train, but my favourite was definitely Manly.

If you don't want to spend all your money in a day stay away from the shops, there are malls that lead into malls, if you take one little look in a shop you will be stuck in the labyrinth all day and forget where you were headed. Take a harbour cruise of some sort.
