Land of Unpredictable Weather.
1. Beaches - Bondi, Manly, Palm Beach
2. The culture - Very versified
3. Friends... that I've left behind.
5. Everything abt Australia... After being there for two years (1yr studying another work & travel), there are more to Australia then meets the eye. My fondest memories... DRIVING. I can drive to anywhere when I'm bored. For instance, there's Watson Bay. Really nice sceney. Or all the way to Wollongong. Stop by Bulli Lookout. Again, beautiful view. While you are up there, have some Italian food. And.. the Blue Montains, who cant forget that place. Its really nice plus the history you'll learn - Aboriginals. Tracking? No worries, as long as you have a guide.
Have time? Rent a car.. drive up to Brisbane. Standard about 10 - 12 hours drive. Well, dont do that as its dangerous. Take your time and be careful at the Wallabies you meet along the way. If you are lucky, you'll see kangaroos too. If driving at night, try not to use high beam. Wild animals are attracted to the lights of your car. Easy drive, you dont need a map. Just follow Highway 1 (Princess highway) all the way to Brisbane. If you want to continue your way up north - to Cairns. Another 14 - 18 hours up north. Agin, follow Highway 1, its called Bruce highway. Interested to go diving or snokelling? A group of Islands you should check out - Whitsunday Islands. I stayed on Hamilton Island. The biggest island of the lot. On good days, it will take about 2hours boat ride to the Great Barrier Reefs. Its worth it, TRUST ME!
Game for Sky-diving experience? A place called Byron Bay in NSW. A nice little town full of hippies. You will be instantly transported to the 60s. Anyways, try sky-diving there. It costs around AU$250+++. View is great. You'll jumped off a Seneca at 3000 feet. While you are there, drive up to Ninbin - Hempsburg. Its a weed-shire. Very much like Amsterdam.. if you know what I mean. hehe...
Too much things to talk about.. too little space. Drop me a message if you wanna find out more.. I will try to help.
The Rocks must beautifull...
The Rocks must beautifull area, than Darling Harbour a must to see, all beaches are good, China Town is cheap for a meal
and don't forget Kings Cross at nighttime, the harbour bridge is a must to see, and don't forget Manly. The Blue Mountains.
The Blue Mountains
A trip to the Blue Mountains is a pretty standard commodity. You don't need to spend a lot of time shopping for it as most prices after fees will be about the same and they will take you on the same itinerary. I have to admit I didn't enjoy this tour. Too much about "Back on the bus" to be fun, too many other tourists to appreciate the nature. They also drop you into a town calle Leura which is one big souvenier shop and the local chamber of commerce provides a kickback for every busload of tourists they bring in. The natural scenery would be better appreciated with the freedom of a car. You could park and just walk around the main attractions as its mostly within a relatively compact area. I've heard you can actually take the train up there and just walk from place to place. I don't know if that's true, but you can't have a worse time than listening to the recycled humor of a tour bus driver. I made bad poetry and songs with the refrain "Back on the Bus"
Back on the bus
The driver cried
As he brought us aboard with care
Supporting each tourist by the seat of the pants
And a finger entwined in his hair...
Get the picture?
Take a visit on Martin Place...
Take a visit on Martin Place that's situated in Sydney's central business district. This major promenade is a site for civic events. These include the lightning of Christmas tree (see picture), Easter, ANZAC Day and Concerts. The recently refurbished historic GPO building and the Cenotaph, a memorial to the fallen Australian soldiers are of interest. The later being the main focus of ceremonies on Anzac Day (April 25) and Remembrance Day (November 11). Passage, a recent addition to the Place is a stainless steel and timber sculpture designed by NSW artist, Anne Graham.
