Saturday in Sydney was spent hanging out with no particular agenda in mind. We walked around Darling Harbour (the area of Sydney where Jeff's hotel and work are), The Rocks, enjoyed each other's company, and ate at James Squire Pub for a late birthday lunch. I had kangaroo...it's delicious! I think Jeff was still tripping out that I was in Sydney for his birthday for much of the day. We went to bed early because our day started quite early.
Sunday, however, we wanted to maximize our sightseeing since Jeff wouldn't be able to take any time off of work. So we bought tickets for the Sydney and Bondi Explorer buses. These buses are hop on/hop off buses with stops scattered all over the city. The buses come in 30 minute intervals at each stop, giving tourists enough time to enjoy the sights and get on a bus whenever they're ready to hit the next point of interest. Luckily for us, there weren't a lot of tourists around (it's winter down under right now). We covered a lot of ground.
Some of the places we saw were Gap Bluff, Watsons Bay, Bondi Beach, Bronte Beach, and of course the Sydney Opera House. We had a yummy lunch at the Bavarian Bier Cafe in Bondi Beach and did a bit of shopping at the Bondi Market. It was a long day of sightseeing, but the bus helped us get to a lot of places we otherwise might have missed. Sydney is such a fun place to visit, no matter what time of year it is.
