We spent the next day sight-seeing in Sydney, which was most enjoyable. The weather was great, so we took the train into Town Hall and then walked across to Darling Harbour. We had a look through the Maritime Museum then wandered through the shopping centre. Noel was delighted to find a British Lolly Shop where he indulged his craving for a Walnut Whip. Over the other side of Darling Harbour you can visit the Chinese Gardens - they are set out really well and you get a guide as you go in explaining the layout and the meanings of all the different areas. It was nice and cool and incredibly quite and peaceful considering it's slap bang in the middle of Sydney. Tonight we went with Auntie Cheryl to a Carols by Candlelight fundraiser at one of her friend's houses. It was actually good fun, singing carols on the front lawn, but then "Santa" arrived on the upper balcony of the house and started throwing lollies for the children. Unfortunately they were those hard sweets and if they hit you on the head it hurt like anything!
