Australia highlights part 3- Sydney

Just before my return to the UK, I was able to spent 10 days in Sydney, taking in all the world famous sites and exploring the neighouring areas. Here are some of my highlights:

Catching my first glimpse of Sydney opera house and harbour bridge
(it felt so surreal seeing it in person)

Visiting the Chinese garden of friendship, right in the heart of the city

Enjoying dim sum, the authentic way, with push around trolleys of food

Staying right next to the platforms of Central station
and sleeping in converted train carriages

Getting a 47th floor, 360 view at rotating restaruant The Summit

Visiting Palm Beach, aka the set of Home and away!

Spending the day climbing and exploring the Blue Mountains

Relaxing on Bondi beach and catching the last of the cliffside exhibition

As you can see, some of the best days of my trip were spent in Sydney. Sadly that's the last of my Australian photos, but I really do hope to return one day, even if it is just for Whitehaven beach!

I'm hoping to go travelling again this summer, so hopefully there'll be plenty more photos to come. Do let me know what your favourite holiday destination are.

Have you ever been to Sydney? Are you a fan of Home and away?

  3. Love these photos!
    I'd definitely recommend a trip to New Zealand if you want to do more traveling. Saw so much there and the difference between the North and South island is huge.x

    1. Thanks, I definitely want to visit New Zealand some day, although it might not be for a few years. Don't think I can deal with another 24 hours of travelling quite yet! x
