Day 6 was one of the most tiring days for us because it involved a lot of walking, walking & walking. You'll know why so okay, we woke up much earlier as usual because our tour bus will be waiting for us at about 7.45am. We woke up around 6am (the same time i wake up to go to work) on this day. We rode onto this APT bus and we're very pleased because the bus driver was very knowledgable. I couldn't remember his name but he told the passengers including us a lot of things about Sydney. We didn't know that the trip from Sydney to Blue Mountains would take around 2hours. At least, i know why we had to wake up early.

We didn't go straightaway from Sydney City to Blue Mountains.
Fish & Chip shop in Leura
The driver made a short 40min stop at a small town called Leura whereby we had a short breakfast. I tell you guys, at Leura, the temperature's much much colder and I was shivering like mad even with my jacket on. Since we had some time, we went to this fish and chip place and bought Medium sized french fries. I thought the french fries would be like Mcdonalds but i was wrong. She gave so much and wrapped it in this white paper bag. Din & I wasn't able to finish it on time so we packed it so we could finish it later. And chilli sauce there cost like 50cents.

From Leura, we went to Blue Mountains which was quite a far distance. The bus driver led us to Echo Point where we take our first scenic mountain photos. We had 30minutes to take photos so Din & I rushed to take the photos as much as we could especially the famous Three Sisters Rock formation.
Looks little but we can't finish it in 10mins
Over here, it was a funny sight when this Japanese lady wanted to take a photo with this Aborigine but he told her to get lost. What a rude Aborigine. We know we may never come here again. When time was up, we went to Scenic World where I posed with a naked...lifeless Aborigine figure. Din didn't want to take any photos because he told me his mum would see the photos. But so what man, it's just a photo...i thought to myself. We paid like AUD$15 to take the Katoomba Scenic railway 1st which was a quick plunge from top to bottom. We then had to walk down the mountain and later take a cable car up back to Scenic World. I love the surroundings at the mountain. So fresh and so cool.

For lunch, it was so expensive there so we continued eating our already cold french fries. That was our lunch. We departed off from Scenic World to Featherdale Wildlife Park at 2pm.
The view from Katoomba
We reached there at 3pm and I liked this place. Animals over here are able to roam around the place as they will...not all. Animals like Kookaburras, Kasawary, Kangaroos do wander around and they're friendly. I did snap a photo with one or 2. There were funny sights again too. At the "farm" area, there was this baby billy goat that pulled the hair off this young Caucasian girl & ate it off. I loved this place so much. About 5pm, we went back to our hotel.

If you read my journal, yesterday, I wanted to go to Sydney Opera House right? After our dinner at Java Cafe located at Elizabeth St, we went there. This time we successfully reached there. The Opera House and The bridge is so monumental. We still managed to take some photos but due to night time, our digital cameras weren't able to produce good photos. We did spend some time there and I should say, the Opera House is comparable to Singapore's Esplanade. At about 9.30pm, we left the place, got some supper (pizza for me) and went back to our hotel before preparing to head off to Melbourne tomorrow.
