Whilst on my travels in Sydney one cannot forget to visit the iconic Darling Harbour, which is located on the western outskirts of the business district. The Harbour has been around since the late 1800’s and is a great place for tourist’s to come and visit. The Harbour has a breathtaking view of the city and the surrounding areas; it’s also packed with dozens of shops, and entertainment facilities. Allowing tourists to really get a feel for the city, its people and the lifestyle.A friend who lives in the area took me to visit the Harbour during a sunny summers day, now considering everyday is most likely going to be sunny this is a bonus, as there are a number of cafes and eating are...Read More

This review is on my visit to Taronga City Zoo, which is located in Sydney Australia. I had heard some great reviews about the Zoo, and was told if your ever going to Sydney its one of the best places to visits in terms of finding out about the local wildlife which is indigenous to that part of the World. I was truly amazed, I have been to a lot of Zoo’s around the world, however I found the zoo, more exotic and exciting to visits and this however could be because it was set in a beautiful country, which was experiencing a 40 degree heat wave.InfoThe zoo was officially opened in 1916, with over 50 acres of free space which is home to some 2,600 animals. How to Get T...Read More

This next review is on my time on The Blue Mountains National Park, located in Sydney Australia. A few friends and I had decided to hire a van and take a tour of the national park, as we had been recommended it by several people we had met along the way. I am usually a fan of national parks; it gives you a chance to take in the scenic view, it gives you a chance to relax and unwind if you have had a busy week, and you even get to see some wildlife. It’s a great experience, which allows you to camp overnight, whilst also have a magnificent driving experience.History & Park Info:The park covers 267,954 hectares, which included several mountains and rivers along the trek. The ...Read More

My next review is on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, which is perhaps one of the most iconic monuments in Sydney, if not the whole of Australia. The Bridge is the main thing that stands out when you first arrive in Sydney, its like their gateway into and out of the City, and with its sheer size, its something that people should take the time to look at up close and personal.History:The bridge has a long history, original plans to create the bridge started in the late 1890’s however construction didn’t actually start until the mid 1920’s. The bridge’s total length is a mammoth 1149 metres (3,770 ft), and according to the World Records book the bridge has the tallest arch steel frame ...Read More
