We received Sydney, the most famous city of Australia with 3,7 million inhabitants after a 19-hour flying time from home. At our arrival, the sun was shining and the temperature was high. From our Hotel we enjoy the spectacular view to the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. Unfortunately the weather did not continue during our visit, because the other 8 days there were strong rainfalls, drizzle and cool temperatures about 20įC. But that didnít matter. Sydney was fascinating at all. At first we went to the Opera House the famous landmark of Sydney.
Our planned Bridge Climbing became a victim of the inconsistent weather. Sydney has probably the most beautiful port of the world.
At the Circular Quay opposite the Rocks it takes place both, the elegant and the uncomplicated and artistic life in the city. Here, particularly on the weekends, is big Showtime. Many Live-bands and Artists act here.
You can reach modern quarters such as Darling Harbour, the old Victorian quarter Paddington, or the nightclub district Kingscross without any problems, by public traffic. Further highlights of this city are the many parks, for example the Hyde Park with its enormous old trees.
Due to the bad weather we visited the Sydney aquarium, the great old shopping centres, like the Queen Victoria Building and the Strand. A guided tour trough the Opera House was another highlight of our stay.
In Sydney you can do everything, all kinds of sports and you can have much fun everywhere. A special experience for us was to go by ferryboat from the Circular Quay to the Taronga Zoo. From here you can see the whole city and most of the landmarks. Either by ferry or by bus you can go to more than 20 city beaches with its very clear water.
Sydney inspired us at all. Everything like feeling, meal, art or culture, sport, fun and more, was greatly.
We come back!
