I've been to Sydney before, but it didn't stop be looking forward to going there again. Darling Harbour is one of those places that you can never get bored of. There's always something going on.

This time around i moved further affield. taking in the Rock ( the oldest part of Sydney), a few of the Parks and their famous Fish market? This comprises of a large unloading area with about a half a dozen fish stalls, a bakery and a deli. Thousands flock here, especially the chinese who demand that the fish they buy is live fresh. A couple of the fish stalls have a cafe attached so customers can have there produced cooked on the spot, it is always packed. It just shows, it doesn't take much to be become a tourist trap (take note NELC)

I took a wine tour around the Hunter Valley. (thats about as much as i can tell you). I also remember the tour guide saying not to drink all the wine, but to spit the wine out. I remember thinking sod that. Funny, that's all i remember.
I learn't whilst tasting wine, i could disitintivly taste difference between still wine, sparkling wine and vinegar. My pallet is not refinded, i just know not to pour it on fish!

The last day in Sydney i climbed the Harbour bridge. I figured that if it's good enough for Kylie. Yes, i have stood where Kylie has stood ( it doesn't get better than that). The climb is not scrary at all, unless you don't like heights, then it may be. You are strapped to an harness, which is hooked on to a continous wire sytem along the whole of the journey. so it's totally safe and a spectacular view especially at dusk when the lights start coming on (you have to pay extra for a dusk climb, but it's worth it).
