We've had a few days in Sydney so far and have taken-in many of the tourist sites.  The Zoo was good - the animals were kept in very good conditions and are part of important breeding programmes, although it was sad to see the Seal by itself in a pretty sparce area by itself.... Not nice after seeing them all in happy freedom....

WE made a trip up to the Blue Mountains.  They made for a stunning view and the weather was very hot, even though they said that it is always cooler than Sydney in the City.  We also made it to Manley and Bondi beaches - neither of them were particularly fantastic as they seem to be made out by Aussies!

THe real highlight of Sydney was managing to get tickets to see Carmen at the Opera House.  It was a magical event and a fantastic performance - it was a great event for us being non-opera buffs, lots of well known songs.  There probably isn't many better places in the world to see an opera!

We had 7 days in and around Sydney - it was plenty of time.  We have arrived safely in Singapore, please be assured that we are staying in a stunning apartment rather than some of the less alubrious hostels that we found in some parts of South America and NZ!!!
