Sydney: Photo Gallery

G'day, mates!

This morning we said farewell to Adelaide and boarded a plane to Sydney for the final leg of our Australian tour.

When we arrived in Sydney we stopped at the world famous Bondi Beach for just over an hour to grab lunch and explore the town. We also got the chance to walk around the Bondi Beach Pavilion, home to the 2000 Olympic Games beach volleyball competition.

We then took a two-hour tour around Sydney and were able to hop off the bus for a few prime photo opportunities. Our first stop was at the top of Dover Heights' Dudley Page Reserve. The overlook, which sits on 500,000 liters of water tanks, provides a breathtaking view of the entire city, including the Sydney Harbor.

We then stopped at The Gap, a picturesque ocean cliff that looks south over Watson's Bay. Finally we stopped and walked around the Sydney Harbor, the views from which included the beautiful Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge. In addition, we were able to sit in Mrs. Macquarie's Chair - an exposed sandstone rock on Macquarie's Point that was cut into the shape of a bench for the Governor of New South Wales Lachlan Macquarie's wife as she would watch ships sail into the harbor.

In the evening we had a team dinner at Blackbird Cafe in the scenic Darling Harbor.
