hi,

if you are keen to try new things, do get lonely planet guidebook. you can borrow it from national library.

my friend and extended family going to perth in october and they would be doing a 3 cars convoy there.

best to rent a car, a family size, 7 seater can be had for A$50++ per day.

public transport, quite all right in the city, inter-city, at most once or twice a day.

The biggest attraction in NSW would be Sydney, the best time of year to go would be November to February so you can enjoy the beaches.

Things to see in Sydney:

Opera House
Beaches. not just Bondi.
day trip to the Blue Mountains, to see a bit of aussie bush land.
The Harbour, take a ferry from the city to Manly.
Bars, Clubs, pubs, Restaurants, cafes etc.
Sculptures by the sea. http://www.sculpturebythesea.com/
a football game. Go the Tigers!
moonlight cinema http://www.moonlight.com.au/ or open air cinema http://www.stgeorgeopenair.com.au/

If you have any particular interests i'm sure you'll find it there somewhere.

Tom.

thats really a personal preference thing, i always prefer sight seeing on my own.

Sydney's pretty big though and a lot of the sights are a long way away from each other, so if you chose to do it on your own then do plenty of research first. Public transport in Sydney is far from good, so either hire a car or get taxi's.

Definitely catch a ferry at Darling Harbour and go to Manly for the afternoon. Very relaxing.

If you can afford it (a little expensive!) climb Sydney Harbour Bridge. There are great views from the top. :D
