The last couple of days of our Australian Adventure were held in Sydney. We stopped in a hotel right next to the harbour so it was perfect for all the main attractions.
Despite the expense (and it was very expensive!), we decided to do the harbour bridge climb. It was good, but you can’t take your own camera. You get one group photo included in the price, which I am sure they make sure is rubbish, and if you want any more you have to buy them. You have to wear romper suits and they are so afraid of anything that might fall on to the cars below that everything has to be attached to the suit. Our guide was good fun and the three hours went very quickly.
They obviously know the repuation of rufty tufty climbers…
We also took the 30 minute ferry ride to beautiful Manly to check out the beach and do some more body surfing.
On our last morning we went to the botanical gardens. Very beautiful. Check out the fruit bats!
It was all a bit sad to leave Australia, but we’ll be back…
