Sydney Sights


Sydney city is an amazing city sitting right on the east coast of australia. We spent a week in Manly, Sydney's most southernly beach to the north, and then a week in Brookvale in a couples basement where we went in to the city everyday. It was a busy week!!! Here are some pictures of Sydney's famous attractions. Enjoy!

We did so much in Sydney over our 2 week stay! We rode the famous Manly ferry into the Sydney Harbor, walked around the Sydney Opera House, walked under the Harbor Bridge, through the Royal Botanical Gardens, viewed the Gothic style Government house, explored Hyde Park including Archibald Fountain, Anzac Memorial, and breathtaking St. Mary's Cathedral. We studied Sydney's convict past at the Hyde Park Barracks Museum and Sydney's criminal past at the Police and Justice Museum. The Rocks, Sydney's oldest area holding much of its history was one of our favorite places to spend time. Cadman's Cottage, The Great Archaeological Dig, Discovery Rocks Museum, and the original Sydney Observatory point under the bridge where a few of the highlights. After walking long days and hours of reading fascinating information Sydney's oldest pub located in the Rocks was a great place to have an unwinding beer. China town, Darling Harbor, Maritime Museum, Noodle Nights at the Sydney Food Festival, Museum of Contemporary Art are some of the other areas of town and museums that we were able to visit. Sydney is beautiful and I enjoyed thoroughly every minute we spent in the hustle and bustle. It was clean, filled with interesting history, surrounded by water, and of course kind people everywhere. We are exhausted and looking forward to getting back in a tent one with nature as we travel south to Melbourne Australia.
