Zoo / Wildlife, Sydney
Take plenty of pictures of the harbour bridge otherwise they will all be of the Opera house. I do not have a photo of the Zoo, but you can visit the Sydney zoo and get the bridge and Opera house in the background. Well worth a half day at the zoo. It's about the only chance to see a Kangaroo unless you want to eat one in one of the keyside restuarants. You can see a Wallaby too...so cute....the girls will love them.
Crocadile Dundee isn't there but there are plenty of crocs there. You can also eat them as well by the way, in the harbourside restuarants. You shouldn't feel too guilty about this as it is usually the other way around.
Favorite thing: Take a 'four wheel drive tour'. We stopped at a wildlife part west of Sydney and got a good look at some of the native wildlife up close. Aftwards we went out and saw some wild wildlife. This Tawney Frogmouth is an strange bird.
See the Harbour. There are lots of things to see there...The famous Sydney Opera House. The beautiful Harbour bridge. And a trip to the Koala park is a must do.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Sydney would be the politeness of the locals. But on the tourist side....was our trip to Koala Park Sanctuary. Seeing Koalas and Kangaroos for the first time was incredible. I thought my wife was going to take one of the Koalas home with her...after cuddling it.
I went to a corcodile farm. 15 ft crocks in pens and cages. There, I ate crocodile soup. It was delicious, sort of like clam chowder. My group loved it, and then we went to watch how they were being fed. This was a great experience, I will never forget. I would definitley take a tourist here.
Fondest memory: The fact that you are one day ahead of everyone here in the USA. Thats was very cool, I could tease my buddies saying even though I spent Wednesday in Sydney, I could spend it again in California. No time lost.
Favorite thing: Red Pandas are not Australian animals but you can find some fine examples of them in the local zoos of Toronga Park, and Cymbio.
These birds i really hate :)
I hate their long noses, wrinkly faces and their habit of stealing food from your table! This is an IBIS.
Fondest memory: getting my food stolen by these little ***es! :)
Fondest memory: I have a thing for cute things, and koalas are definitely cute! So I was more than delighted to finally see one up close and to take a picture with one!
Favorite thing: Make sure that you take a ferry from Circular Quay and go across to Toronga Park Zoo. It is without doubt one of the most picturesque in the whole world.
