For the final leg of our trip to Australia, the Bear and I stayed at Darling Harbour in Sydney. We arrived late in the evening, and the views of the Harbour at night were just gorgeous! February was the Month of Love in Darling, so romance was in the air the minute we stepped outside of our hotel room.
(The Bear took all the photos, unless he or food are in it!)
This wall was covered in chalk paint where lovers could leave a message. I adored reading all the love notes. The city lights were stunning as reflected on the Harbour waters. Hearts could be found at every nook and cranny! Couples could even take a private boat ride in these little love boats above. After dinner the Bear and I stopped for desert at N2 Gelato, where a bunch of mad scientists made gelato before your eyes by using liquid Nitrogen.
The following day we spent cruising the streets of downtown Sydney.
We stopped by the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Can you believe that people actually climb the top of that bridge?! Talk about scary! I was happy enjoying the views from the ground. Later we enjoyed lunch at Yuki’s at Quay, as recommended by Brittany. The sushi was incredible and you can’t beat that view of the Opera House! After lunch we waddled around the Circular Quay for a close up of the Sydney Opera House.
After wandering around the Sydney Botanical Gardens, we decided to discover the city from above so we went to the Sydney Tower Eye.
Sydney is known for it’s blue and green… that’s blue sky and green trees. The only way to top our day in Sydney, was to go to Bondi Beach the following day! I am sure you have heard of Bondi because it’s one of the most famous tourist beaches in Australia.
Even though it’s a tourist beach, it’s still absolutely beautiful!
Plus, a short walk around the corner you can find some of the most beautiful ocean waters and cliffs.
In the middle of the above picture, you can see two of the smaller beaches within walking distance from Bondi. We spent an hour or two on Tamarama Beach, as seen below.
After a lovely beach day, the Bear and I spent our final evening in Australia at Darling Harbour. As you know from the previous pictures, it is simple beautiful, and they also have some of the best dining experiences along the Harbour. Let’s just say it’s a good thing I am running a marathon this weekend!
I already miss my time in Australia. The people are among the friendliest, the beaches are among the bluest, the cities are among the cleanest, and the reef… oh the reef and it’s glory! My next trip to Australia cannot come soon enough!
