G) Another place of interest along this educational line would be the Observatory located in Observatory Hill Park in Sydney center. Originally this hill was named Windmill Hill and had a fort until the 1800’s. Tours are available daily and nightly, and the planetarium shows digital films on everything from the usual astronomy to the history of space flight. Another great place to bring your children.
H) If you can’t visit the one in London and just for pure fun, Madame Tussaud’s is also present in Sydney. See all your favorite historical, famous and popular figures in wax. This “museum” is located on the Aquarium Wharf.
I) The Sea life Sydney Aquarium contains more than 700 species of marine life found mostly in the waters surrounding this continental country. Ride a glass bottom boat, feed sharks, and more is the name of the game here along with self-guided tours. It can get busy so tickets can be purchased on line.
J) What’s Australia – and Sydney – without a beach? Try the Bondi to Coogee walk if you don’t mind lots of stairs. You can swim at various beaches along the way. A less strenuous walk is the Bondi to Bronte Coastal. Manly Beach is extremely popular and – bonus – you can take the scenic Manly Ferry from Sydney to laid-back Manly in 30 minutes. The beach is 1.5 kilometers long and parts of it are great for surfing.
