Nov 22 - Oxfam Walk

Dec 2009 - Sydney

09/10 Summer Holidays


Back in 2005 I was in Sydney with my family as a gateway to seeing the Bathurst 1000. December 2009 I was lucky enough to return - and Rosie gets her first trip over the Tasman! Originally I'd looked up about tour trips to see the Sydney Telstra 500 - the new last race in the V8 Supercar series. After reviewing some packages and their prices, inevitably my mind was driven to figure out how I could do it better myself. Net result was a package that saw us spending more than twice as long in Sydney, doing more, for less the cost. 10 nights total, and almost every day packed full of activity, not only hitting the tourist hot spots, but getting out and exploring the city at large, taking some ambling public transport trips through the neighbourhoods that tell the real tale of Sydney as a city, not just a tourist destination.

Full photo album laid bare below. Each section has it's own little summary, and photos will be captioned where I think it necessary.
