Today was a busy, exhausting, and beautiful day taking in the sights of Sydney. We began our morning with a 6am breakfast, then departed by 7:30 for a full day of sight-seeing. We began with the Hyde Park Barracks. The Barracks are essentially a museum of convict history, including visits to the old sleeping barracks, lunch area, living quarters, and tools and artifacts from some of Sydney’s founding people.
Next, we embarked on a 3-4 hour sight-seeing tour of Sydney. This included overlooks of the bay, views of the opera house and Sydney Harbour Bridge, lunch at Bondi Beach, and much more...
Next we boarded a long slow cruise around the Sydney Harbor to take in views of the city from the water!
We ended our night with free time, dinner, and shopping..... and a few of us climbed to the very top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge!
