The iconic structures of Sydney

5 08 2010

On my last full day in Australia, it was off via train to the Circular Quay stop in Sydney, situated right between the giant Harbour Bridge and the famous Opera House. The trains are so clean and efficient and the stations are built to look like the younger days of the country. We got there in 35-40 minutes from Parramatta (far east of the city) with a transfer.

We walked the Opera House area (lots of mid-morning runners out) and I talked about helping the indigenous people of the country with a young woman. I didn’t know we could go inside the building but no big deal.

Then  it was a walk into The Rocks, a small part of town under the bridge, and onto the bridge for a walk across and back. Amazing views, beautiful day. I guess we have to come back here some day!
