From the Archives: Australia

It’s been awhile since I have been to Australia, but it is a place I revere with great affection.  It’s got everything… great views, wonderful scenery, awesome and diverse food, and the best people anywhere.  It’s super friendly, great climate, and lots to do and see.

I wrote about it here.    My friend, Pat, is making her first trip with her family to Australia and asked me where she should go.  That’s always a tough question, but got me to thinking where to recommend.treeharborbrgi.JPG

Anyone going to Australia will be hitting Sydney, and with it, automatically see the Harbor Bridge, the Opera House and the boardwalk or Circular Quay.  But while there, I might recommend the Harbor bridge climb or the unfortunately now defunct Mutiny on the Bounty harbor cruise (see below).

The Queen Victoria Building isn’t much more than a shopping mall, but it is home to this ancient and fascinating clock>

When I was there some years back, we also took an excursion to Symbio, because I wanted to see koala’s and kangaroo’s.  It was little more than a zoo… but I got to pet kangaroo’s, so it was fun.

Of course if one was to do excursions Bondi Beach and Darling Harbor are also great outings.  The Three Sisters in the Blue Mountains is a beautiful outdoor destination out of Sydney.

My knowledge is all quite old.  I’m quite sure my friend will bring home her own great experiences and be telling me the places to go.  All I have are my memories of the places I have been, and they are all cherished indeed.
