Laura and Caroline’s Travel Diary

Sunday, 14 Jun 2009

Location: Sydney, Australia

MapSo we made it to Sydney on Thursday morning. Our hostel is in the middle of town, which is really cool. We headed straight towards Circular Quay on our first day here, stopping at China Town and Hyde Park (not any where near as big as in London but really pretty!). The Quay is amazing and we went straight over to the Opera House and took loads of pictures and also of the Habour Bridge, was a gorgeous day really sunny yay :-).

On Friday we took a trip up to the Blue Mountains, went for a guided walk and saw some amazing water falls, climbed down the Furber Steps (1000 of them but Caroline only counted 925 think she needs some more lessons!), saw the Three Sisters and went up the Steepest Railway in the world, pretty cool! Stayed in the most amazing hostel EVER! Had a library and log fires and was just AMAZING! On Sat we went for some walks by ourselves (didnt get too lost!) and then got a lift back to Sydney.

Sunday was the day of the climb of Sydney Harbour Bridge and it certainly didnt disappoint!. The views from up there were magnificant, you could see Bondi Beach, Manly, the Olympic Park, Blue Mountains and sooooooooo much, was really great. The photos were very funny due to the dodgy Americans in our group! Visited the markets in the afternoon and managed to get some woolies for NZ cos its gonna be freezing!

Planned to spend Monday at some of the Museums before flying out to NZ on Tuesday........
