Sydney - Day 2
Sydney Travel Blog› entry 4 of 38 › view all entries
Left the hotel early this morning to go exploring.
It's been raining on and off all day so far - just like yesterday.
I wandered down to Circular Quay - there are excellent views of the Sydney Harbor Bridge and the Sydney Opera house from there. I then hiked around Sydney Cove to the opera house (Bennelong Point) where I took pictures from every imaginable angle! I took too many to post here, but I will post some of them (as soon as I find computer that can either talk to my camera or read my memory cards).
I then hiked through the Royal Botanic Garden. This place was incredible! Even though I spent quite awhile wandering through there, I probably only saw about half of the place.
I then continued completely around Farm Cove, around Mrs. Macquaries Point and about half way around Woolloomooloo Bay before I turned back around.
I backtracked back to Sydney Cove and Circular Quay and then over to the Sydney Harbor bridge.
After seeing the bridge I headed back down to the area of town that my hotel is in. I just finished lunch, wanted to get the blog udpated and then I will be heading out again. I've got a Sydney Pass which is a 7 day pass for the Bus, Train and Ferry, so I may not do as much walking this afternoon.
This city is huge! From what I can see, due to the weird coastline, Sydney has at least 3 separate skylines. I was also suprised at the sheer numbers of people on the street today during lunch - it remined me of New York.
