|The first night we were in Sydney, we took the ferry to
Darling Harbour, which is the home to a big park, lots of restaurants, and
other attractions. We all enjoyed the IMAX movie "Sydney: The Story
of a City," a great orientation to the city.
This is the Chinese Pavilion at Darling Harbour.
|Interesting license plate.|
|The Powerhouse is a major science and technology museum in the Darling Harbour area. We intended to go but got there a little too late. Maybe next trip...|
|So instead, we got a snack at Hannah's Hot Pies.|
|Wes enjoying his beef and curry pie.|
|We saw a lot of these squashed in Mercedes in Sydney. I thought they were quite fun.|
|The beautiful Old Customs House across fro Circular Quay.|
|Opals are on sale everywhere.|
|The New South Wales Museum was having an exhibit on body art while we were there. I liked this 3D billboard. We went to the exhibit and enjoyed it very much.|
|There are several of these stores in Sydney.|
|And several "suckatoriums."|
|We had dinner one night at Thaina Box, a hip noodle bar on Oxford Street. Good food at cheap prices.|
|Hyde Park is located across from the foot of Oxford Street.
It's a beautiful city park taking up around 4 square blocks right in the
heart of Sydney.
The Anzac War Memorial on one end of the park is particularly impressive...
|as is the fountain on the other end.|
|Turtle in Hyde Park fountain.|
|Right before we left Sydney, we noticed a cruise ship passing underneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge.|
