Of all the places in Australia, Sydney is particularly iconic and I don’t think you really feel like you are in Australia until you go there and are in the presence of the opera house and the harbour bridge. We stayed in a campsite just outside the city centre for 4 nights, and then got the tube into the city everyday.
Day one consisted of a sunny Sunday having food and drinks with friends at the Opera Bar by the Opera house and the harbour bridge (which it was very surreal to be sat next to!) – the burgers at the Opera bar are amazing. We then headed to the Coogee pavilion which is a huge bar with an open balcony on the second floor, so that the good weather can be enjoyed. It was really busy for a Sunday and the atmosphere was really good – apparently aussies love their Sunday sessions.
The next day we decided to do the Coogee to Bondi walk, starting from Coogee so that we could finish at the Bondi icebergs pool and cool off – which was much appreciated as it was a boiling hot day and the walked nearly killed us (well me in particular). The walk took about an hour and a half, and around every corner was another beautiful beach. Bondi and Bronte were my favourites :).
Darling Harbour was the chosen destination for our next day, as when it’s cloudy drinking is the obvious choice! Most of the bars on darling harbour have happy hour between 3-6pm so we took full advantage.
Once we had finished in Sydney we headed to a small town called Morisset, as we had heard that you could go and visit kangaroos in the wild there. We went to Aldi and bought some carrots and apples and rocked up in Morriset on a patch of grass which is right behind the hospital (pop this into maps to get there). There were probably about 100 kangeroos, and a few groups of people who had the same idea as us. The kangeroos are very tame as I guess they are used to having people feed them, it was a wonderful experience to go and visit them in the wild.
