I made two visits to Sydney during
my time in Oz. I stayed there for a few days upon arrival,
to adjust to the change in time and weather - and returned again
for a few days before departing for New Zealand.
After cold, wet, wintry London, Sydney's 30°C+ and sunshine
took quite some getting used to.
I was staying in a city centre hotel, just next door to Town Hall
Station, which made it conven ient to get around town. One
fo the first things I wanted to see was the 'Big Tyne Bridge'...
Sydney's copy of the original in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I
was pleased to see that there was a Queen in town... although with
Mardi Gras just a few weeks away, that shouldn't have surprised
