Had a short flight from Brisbane, arrived in Sydney around 3pm. What a beautiful city! We are only a few minutes walk from the Sydney Bridge and the Opera House. Both are awe inspiring. Our hotel is very old and Irish and has large rooms and a bath. The bathroom is huge. Pub downstairs and it seems to be a lively place. We had a drink on the patio and met a couple from England who had stopped for a drink also and we ended up walking with them to the middle of the bridge to watch The Diamond Princess leave port at 6pm. About 15 minutes from the hotel. The harbour is beautiful, lots of islands about that we are going to take a boat trip and visit while we're here. We went back to our hotel for a bangers and mash dinner and then took a walk down to the water and along George Street. We'll be ready to roll tomorrow. Nice and cool here, too about 22 or 23C. yeah!
