Sydney Day 5

Time to do more touristy things! Day 5 began with a city tour. At first we wanted to join one of those tour buses which stops at several popular places. But we then decided it was easier to find out own way since everywhere is within walking distance. So, armed with a map, we were ready to conquer the city!!

We came across the Special Olympic torch run at the city hall and then we walked across to the Queen Victoria Building. Pricey place.

After the quick tour inside the QVB, we made our way to the Sydney Fish market!! It's soooo clean inside. All markets should be like this! We had a good lunch at the fish market.


We walked around the market for a bit. Saw a lot of fresh seafood!

We then moved on to China Town. We passed by Ian Thorpe's Aquatic Centre on the way there.

Blending right in

Damn big!

After that we went to walk (yup, more walkies) at Hyde Park.

Captain Cook!

We saw St. Mary's across the street. Looks like the World Youth Day's gonna be next year.

Was already late by that time, after a whole day of walking around the city we headed back to Wahroonga after dinner.
