Red Bull Flugtag Sydney

Today was a stunning day in Sydney which is nice after a week of rain and the forecast of another week of rain.

Sea World (Take One)

Sea World was the most disappointing out of the theme parks that I visited. I think this is mainly due to my age. I am way too old for Sesame Street shows and most of the wildlife I have seen in wild or other zoos before. The one exception to this is the dolphin show which was something really special.

The rides at Sea World were pretty awesome, especially the Jet Ski Rescue rollercoaster but they seemed a little out of place and would have been more awesome with the other crazy rides at Movie World.

Gold Coast + Byron Bay (Take Three)

Road Trip – Photos 5 – Port Macquarie to Sydney, Roads and Beaches

The final day of our road trip was spent travelling from Port Macquarie to Sydney via a detour to Foster and Newcastle.

Foster and the beaches around it on the other hand appeared much more appealing and would be certainly be worthwhile investigating. The drive into Sydney is spectacular as the quality of the road makes NZ roads look like unsealed backstreets.
