Australia trip – one year ago today: Saturday 22nd November

Reliving our amazing November 2014 trip to Australia…


Sydney

This morning started with a walk through the CBD to get to the Sydney Tower Eye. From the top of here, we had a great view all across the city. One thing that really strikes you is just how much the harbour spreads out and the city weaves itself around it.
We sat in Hyde Park with our picnic lunch before exploring it further, including the Anzac Memorial, and then mooching back through a different part of the CBD.
This evening we wandered back to the Opera House for tea and then a concert (Brahms, Beethoven and a Finnish composer I hadn’t heard of before). It was wonderful to be inside the Opera House, especially as the area around the concert hall was open only for concert-goers for the hour before, giving us since exclusive views inside and across the harbour.
We had ice-cream on our wander back round Circular Quay and through the Rocks (which we intend to explore in a few days).
