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.
