    Tidal Cascades

    This nice fountain can be found in Darling Harbour. It was designed by Robert Woodward, who also designed the El Alamein Fountain in Kings Cross.

    It was a great place to go and people watch - we were there in mid winter, but we still managed to find a place in the outside seating at a cafe (Just like England eh?)

    The shark tanks are the best. You walk through a tunnel with the sharks swimming all around you, you can get a good close up view of those teeth!

    Seagulls..

    These seagulls were having a wonderful time bathing in the crystal clear water of the fountain. They were not in the least bit camera shy.. LOL..

    Fountain..

    When you walk around the city, there is no telling what you will come across on your travels.. This fountain was a lovely surprise, just a short walk from the Chinese Garden.

    the chinese gardens in darling harbour are a great getaway from the surrounding city. a welcome change from the skyscrapers. just a pity that the skyscrapers are still evident.

    lots of snack bars vying for your tourist dollar, as well as plenty of asian specialty shops. paddys markets are also a source of cheap and often nasty bargains.

    ANZAC bridge near Pyrmont (not that far from Darling Harbour) is an interesting looking bridge. Tourists don't flock to this bridge unlike Harbour Bridge .

    Seals basking in the afternoon sun

    The aquarium in Darling Harbour is a fantastic place to bring kids. They will enjoy everything from the fish to the seals sunbathing in the sun.

    It's nice to go here to have Chinese Tea. It is a very calm and relaxed spot in Darling Harbour, with the city just outside.

    Sydney Aquarium or Ocean World at Manly.
    Check out some of the amazing marine life of Australia. I especially liked the shrks and giant rays.

    Check out the underwatertunnels with nice views on all kinds of fish, like sharks.
    They swim right over your head.

    Chines Garden, Sydney

    An authentic Chinese garden (designed by the city of Guangdong) it has a tranquility that is quite unexpected considering it is in the middle of a busy cosmopolitan city.
