... well, except nothing. It will be so good to get away from trash like this ... I can't imagine that people act like this where I'm going. I sincerely hope I'm not proven wrong.
I managed to get the weight of my backpack down to a total of about 13kg - 9.8kg for the main pack which was checked in, and a bit over 3kg for the detachable day pack which I am taking on board. Hauling my backpack all around Western Sydney on five separate trains today ...
... br> The final 2 days were pretty rainy and miserable, but it meant we got our little jobs done, and persuaded us that on saturday, our final day, that going out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, just had to be done :P except i had developed abit of a flu, so that kinda ruined it. hay ho.
And now we're off to New Zealand!
Expect a rather long next entry, because its going to be a packed month of adventure!
Lets just hope this flu ...
... forward to seeing it. Well I'm impressed with Bondi, it was really busy with lots of people and lots of guys (twit twitoo). Bondi beach is lovely, it's different to the Northern beaches (Dee Why and Manly) but I really liked it, it had this buzz about it. There was loads of surfers as well and the waves were really big, so you can see why this is a better surfing spot. xxxxx
... next years cruises, just incase, there's the South American one that looks interesting. If only there was health and money. I and my partner Dave won the afternoon shuffle so I have a gold sticker as well now, (what shall we do with them). The show tonight is a grand finale for the resident dance troupe as this is a major end of cruise change over list of passengers will leave the ship tomorrow. The show is a dance spectacular introduced by Darcy Bustle (via ...
... and scaffolding of the bridge. So we decided to go to a bar with an actual harbour view, the glen more rooftop bar (best pub in Sydney I reckon). Feeling like ballers, we got slightly carried away buying several bottles of champagne (actually sparkling wine). Great view of the harbour, opera house and skyscrapers of the CBD. Ended the night in some club back in kings cross playing heavy music to the smoke filled green haze ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quay Grand Suites Sydney
Had a three night stay in a two bedroom harbour view apartment. The view was breath taking. The rooms weren't bad either. Room service was excellent and great value for money.
The only slight draw back is that the harbour is a buzzing area so expect some noise from bars. Even so I would still stay there again.
There are many nice things to say about this hotel. The view from the harbor view apartments is stunning. The staff and restaurant are both quite pleasant. There is space for families, especially in the two bedroom apartments. The kitchen appears to be quite nice.
A home away from home!
Stayed at Quay Grand in sydney June 2005 in the Garden room. The apartment room have everything from two TV's to a full kitchen and a lush spa! Apartment was spotless and very comfy. I would definatley recommend staying in the water view room as the garden view room did not really look oevr a nice garden. It also proved very frustrating knowing you had one of the worlds most beautiful harbours and couldn't admire it when you wanted to.
Definately would stay again.
We have stayed 3 times at this hotel - our only complaint is that it gets booked up particularly at peak times. We have stayed on the front - breathtaking and on the back still atmospheric. There is no greater location on the planet!!!!!
Sydney Harbour balcony view
We stayed here for our wedding night and we had the best view while eating breakfast from our balcony...what else but the Sydney Harbour Bridge, right next to Circular Quay.
I greatly recommend it to anyone!
Fabulous location and facilities
Stayed for 4 nights here and it is the most stunning location for a hotel - very accomodating with the kids too. Staff very friendly and great to have a kitchen with everything! would stay again if someone else is paying!
Perfect spot for 1st time Sydney visitors from anywhere
I always go back
I used to be a frequent guest at sister property Quay West till Quay Grand opened. The name is pretentious but everything else is perfect, and I haven't stopped going back. Being accustomed to the views of the harbor and the bridge these days I tend to stay in the garden view rooms as Macquary Street is much quieter than Quay East, and the apartments on that side are $100 cheaper too. If the apartments were just a touch bigger I could stay forever. My wife feels remorse everytime she thinks how we toyed with buying one of the apartments when they were launched!
Our family of four (two adults, one 5 year old and one 10) stayed at the Quay Grand for seven nights in August and were extremely happy with the choice. We had a one bedroom suite overlooking the Circular Quay and the Harbour Bridge. Our children slept on a queen-size sofa sleeper in the living area. A full kitchen (necessary cooking utensils, appliances and dinnerware included) and dining table allowed us to dine in, especially for breakfast and a few dinners. Room service is available all day off of a limited but tasty menu. Although we were directly over the hustle and bustle of the main harbor, the room was surprisingly quiet. A balcony with two chairs and a table make for an enjoyable perch in warmer weather for watching the constant parade of ship traffic below and sunsets over the Bridge. The location is terrific with immediate access to the great public transportation options (subway, buses and ferries) that allow one to visit most parts of the city. The botanical gardens are directly across the street on the other side of the hotel and the Opera House is a five minute stroll along the arcaded edge of the harbor. The financial center and main shopping district are an easy uphill stroll (fifteen minutes), too.
Best hotel in the World!!
Must stress that I didn't pay to stay here (company paid for it!!) as there's no way I could afford it! It's the best place I've ever stayed, the views of the harbour from the rooms are amazing. Was lucky enough to be here for 2 weeks and it felt like my home. If you get the chance, stay here!!
Excellent location. Beautiful five star property.
This is a top choice in Sydney.
