Finally arrived at Central Station about 4.30 pm, 8 hours after leaving home. Our accommodation is walkable from the Country Terminal but try struggling with 30kgs of luggage uphill on a cobbled pavment. Already I am dreading carting this luggage nearly 20,000 klms around the world.

After checking in to our accommodation, we split up for a …

Cockatoo Island

A travel blog entry by ajones1329


The Bad News: There are no cockatoos on Cockatoo Island.The Good News: It's a really cool place rich in history -- military, industrial, convict, and even a scene from the movie 'Wolverine'.

I set out around 10 am on the ferry. It was about a 20-minute ride from Circular Quay. Cockatoo Island is extremely small (only 4 acres) and was closed to the public for over 100 years. It was originally founded as a penal settlement. Cockatoo Island brought some relief to the ...

... and now i'm trying different styles out of my comfort zone.

One sunny Saturday I spend the morning at Bondi Icebergs - for $5.50 I can swim and use the sauna for as long as I please which turns out to be about 2 and a half hours. The water is beautiful if not a bit chilly, but the atmosphere is great. A lot of people come just to socialise and catch some rays. If you can get a top seat in the sauna you get the best view looking out over the bay. I ...

... the corner of our room at Bs it's a really tight squeeze. I have no idea why. We are sitting in the living room of Wallara Crescent watching tv for the last time. I'm slightly nervous about putting my backpack on and walking out of the door. But so excited to get back on the move and decide our next ...

As former residents of the area, we have regularly stayed at this hotel over the past 2 years. It is an easy walk from Central Station and with good public transport access to the city & airport. Although a little dated, the rooms and ensuites are spacious, clean, quiet and value for money. The hotel is open late and the bistro provides a variety of pub fare for lunch & dinner. A number of breakfast options are available within a short walk. Try the unnamed cafe run by an elderly chinese couple at the bus stop on the corner of Devonshire & Elizabeth Sts. Full english breakfast and good coffee for under $7 cooked exactly to your requirements. If your not 5 star travellers, then this is a good value option.
