Flag of Australia  , New South Wales,
Saturday, March 19, 2011

The next day we got up early and headed to Darling Harbour with plans to take a ferry and go to the zoo but at the visitor centre the lady ended up talking us out of the zoo and instead we got tickets for a hop-on-hop-off tourist bus for downtown sydney and a four pack of tickets for some attractions.
First we took the bus to the Sydney Wildlife World and checked out all the land animals of Australia then we went to the Sydney aquarium and checked that out for awhile; we didn`t get to see the platypus though cz it was hiding :(
Afterwards we decided to jump on the bus and just ride it around the whole route to take pictures and see the sites. We eventually stopped at the fish markets and they were closing up, but we got lucky and got some fish at a restaurant for really cheap.
Then we got on the bus again and took it back to our hostel and met up with the guys we had one the $50 with and went for supper and drinks.

The next morning we got up pretty early again to get on the bus before our pass expired and we took it up to the Opera House. After taking the usual pictures of us and the opera house and harbour bridge in the background we headed over to walk around the area called The Rocks and then down the road to the Queen Victoria Building, which is a really old huge beautiful building thats been turned into a shopping mall. Then we headed over to the Sky Tower and spent a bit of time checking out the views.
Afterwards we had to get to where they do the Visa`s for china and get ours rushed to pick up the next day, and finally we succeeded!...just cost us quite a bit.
For supper the hostel had a bbq, which was delicious! Then we walked back up to the opera house to see it at night all lit up.

On Saturday we got up really early to book flights and then just went back to bed till about noon and spent the afternoon updating our blog and sitting in the tv room at the hostel, it was nice having a real lazy day!
