Yesterday we finally made it to Sydney’s harbour!!! It is very pretty, and very busy. All along the side of the harbour are little restaurants and cafes that over look the harbour. Giving you the best views of the Opera house and the bridge. I hope to indulge in a fancy night at one of these places sometime in the very near future.
Every Saturday and Sunday, Sydney has somewhat of a farmer’s market where they have about 100 different booths where people sell artwork, jewelry, candies, clothes, and little knickknacks. It was fun to walk around and check out different things, and also sample some treats!
On our way home, we decided to cut through this pretty park. We quickly realized that it was the Royal Bontanical Gardens. It was such a pretty little area where they have hundreds of different trees, and flowers. We also ran into some interesting creatures.
In the harbour, Redbull had setup an event called “Flugtag”, where people have to build a device that can fly off a cliff that they have built. The object of this contest is to see who’s contraption can go the farthest in the air across the water. It was pretty interesting to watch, and extremely hilarious as people would bail so quickly, and break their devices. Kinda reminded me of those old Chinese Ultimate Challenge Shows with the English subtitles. There was a huge crowd…and lots of sponsors…it was quite the big deal.
