Spent today catching up on washing & packing, then headed out to get last minute souvenirs, as today is our last day in Australia!! Had dinner on Opera Quays, to our left we had the Harbour Bridge & to our right we had the Opera House. We then tried to have a drink inside the Opera House but they were having a ticket only event, so we headed to the terrace below instead. Great view of the bridge but not of the Opera House. Drinks were cheaper than at Penn!!!...

Decided to do our own version of a harbour cruise & got on a couple of ferries going in different direction in the harbour & sat on them til they did a circuit.

Absolutely stunning, very close to a national park & its on a peninsula so ocean on one side & calm harbour on the other. Went to the Surf Club & saw some filming!! Lucas was the only character I recognised. Had a walk along the beach & around the bay. Then headed south for Sydney. Drove over the Harbour Bridge, virtually no view f...
