Australia Adventure – Sydney – Part 2

Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That’s the problem.

― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh


A continent that is disconnected to other world, creates its own specialty.

In Sydney, it is very convenient to go to most of the tourist attraction by walking or public transportation.

Here is the map of trains in Sydney : Download

In Darling Harbour lies three tourist attraction.SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Madame Tussauds
  • Wide Life Sydney Zoo ( Two zoo in Sydney. The other is Taronga Zoo)
  • Sea Life Sydney Aquarium

I visited the latter two attraction. In my opinion, they both worth a visit. Especially, if you only stay in Sydney, the most convenient way to see all special kinds of Australia is to visit Wide Life Zoo. As well, you can get a hug with koalas.  Besides mild and cute animals, crocodile which length is 5 meter. Its name is Rex. Fierceness is in his nature. He is renown of killing his wives. For entertainment, the zoo offers a feeding show that Rex will jump out of the water and make a huge bite!
