Police followed a car from Brighton-Le-Sands at about 4pm (AEST) on Saturday and stopped it on Botany Road at Mascot a short time later.
Following a search of the vehicle, police say they discovered 80 blocks of what is believed to be heroin with a total weight of 28kg.
A 23-year-old Chippendale man and a 28-year-old Haymarket man in the car were arrested.
Police then searched two units in Pitt Street in the city and premises in Brighton-Le-Sands and Chippendale.
They allegedly discovered several hundred thousand dollars in cash, laptops, scales, money counters, mobile phones and drug packaging.
The two men have been charged with drug offences and will appear before Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday.
