We couldn’t visit Sydney without getting a close up of this iconic landmark which was massive and impressive The only down side was that no part of it was open so best to find out if anything happening before visiting

No other city can beat Sydney in its natural beauty. If you are comparing nature and not man made structures Sydney takes first place for me. It’s alive fresh stunning clean and ala natural. Come and see it for yourselves.

It was a great experience to visit and walk around the Opera House. We were lucky to get here before the sunset after our trip to Cockatoo Island.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

The display is on the eastern side of the Bennelong sail at sunset and at 7pm, so simply walk to the top of the big steps outside at the front.
