Debra Down Under

Last week one of my best pals from California came and spent 9 days with us in Sydney before heading off on a 2 week Australian adventure. Even though the weather was pretty miserable most of the time she was here, (it is the middle of winter after all) we managed to pack the time full of fun. At 35+ weeks pregnant I think I'm still a pretty good tour guide. Here's what we did:

-South Head Cliff Walk and lunch at Doyle's Fish & Chips
-Sydney Tower
-Hyde Park
-The Domain (and the bats at dusk)
-Featherdale Wildlife Park
-The Blue Mountains, Scenic World, the 3 Sisters
-Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout, exploring The Rocks
-Taronga Zoo
-Queen Victoria Building
-Museum of Sydney
-Darling Harbour, Chinese Gardens, Paddy's Market
-Yum Cha in Chinatown
-Visit an RSL Club
-Bradley's Head, Chowder Bay, Cremorne Point Bushwalk
-Manly to Shelly Beach walk and dinner on the wharf
-Northern Beaches (Palm Beach and Newport)

She returns to Sydney for 3 nights later this month and will do the Opera House, Botanic Garden, Kings Cross, Bondi and a Harbour Cruise as part of her tour.

What other Sydney "must-sees" should I take her to? Suggestions welcome!

OMG! You guys did a lot! We've been here over a month and still haven't managed to do all of that! Seriously, I'm staring at your list trying to come up with something new...but no, you are a fantastic tour guide =)

I can see the Museum of Sydney from my window :) Is it any good?

Jenny said...

Mimi- No, the Museum really isn't very good. But we needed someplace to shelter from the pouring rain so it seemed like a good idea at the time! Not someplace I'd be rushing back to. The most interesting part was the dog skeleton that was found during some excavation in the 1980s!

It's difficult and it might seem crazy; but I am going to have to pass on the dog skeleton :D LOL
