Sydney, Harbour, Aquarium, QVB etc
Queen Victoria Building. It is an magnificent building that is worth seeing just for the architecture. The construction of this Romaneque Revival building was completed in 1898. Today it is restored with elegant arches, lead lighting, and mosaic tiles.
Welcome Wall was part of the museum to list migrants who arrived by boat. When we had time I stopped to read snippets of migrants stories.
part of the Sydney Festival. It is a 28 metre sculpture by Aboriginal artist/designer, Jacob Nash, that alludes to the Aboriginal slogan "Always was, always will be Aboriginal land". It is good to have reminders of Sydney's Aboriginal past.
in Sydney in March last year, it was a far more fleeting visit but we did find time to visit the Aquarium on Darling Harbour. This year Sylvia was keen to go again. It was good going after being there so recently and knowing what to expect and what we could just skip past. She did not enjoy the tunnels with fish swimming around us last time. This time she managed to enjoy them for a while.
I am writing more about more of the places we visited and linking to them when I have posted:
Grounds of Alexandria
Harrys Cafe de Wheels, Darling Harbour
Moo Gourmet Burgers and Manly Beach
The Tea Cosy tearooms and The Rocks
