Sydney is hot. Like really hot. Since the boyfriend spent yesterday on Bondi getting burnt, we decided to relax as we had a long and exciting night ahead of us, so we headed down to the Rocks and Sydney Harbour.
The Rocks is very “old Sydney” with many of the buildings being made from local sandstone – it is perfect for the history buff in you. With Harbour Bridge on your right, and the skyscrapers of the city dwarfing the old buildings, it’s quite a view to take in.
There are souvenir shops aplenty heading toward the harbour, with some very cool Aussie eateries dotted up and down the streets – but more on the food later…
We headed straight for Harbour Bridge in search of the perfect view of the Sydney Opera House.
As you walk along the bridge there are towers on either side where you can pay $8 and get a spectacular and undisturbed view of the harbour.
So being the tourists that we were, the first thing we did was take a panoramic pic.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to the the official Bridge Climb as it was New Year’s Eve and the bridge was wired with thousands of fireworks, which we were lucky enough to see.
Sydney is a city I am already head over heels in love with, I just didn’t want to leave. I recommend it for anyone who loves a good beach and a spot of shopping. They even have a Westfield Shopping Centre, which is home to the Tower restaurant and some lovely designer shops – absolutely worth a visit!
Have you been to Sydney? What did you think of the city? Do you live there? Can you offer me a job? Please?
