Walk Around Sydney

Today Dee-Anne and I spent the day having a walk about Sydney.  We caught the train into Central station to start with, walking up to Hyde Park and the ANZAC memorial for a sombre start.  Down the reflecting pond we walked until we got to the Sydney Festival Village, where the line for Sacrilege, a bouncy-castle Stonehenge, was far too long for us to consider getting in it.  A shame as it looked like quite a cool thing.

Across the road from Sacrilege we took a look inside St Mary’s Cathedral, before walking through parks, including the Botanic Gardens, to the Opera House, somewhere Dee-Anne hadn’t been before. In one of the parks was a status of Robert Burns, an ancestor of Dee-Anne’s.

After the Opera House we took a walk to The Rocks for lunch, finding a great funky bar, The Argyle, and associated Dumpling Kitchen.  Food was excellent, some great fusion dishes.

Finally, on the way home we stopped at N2 Extreme Gelato, where they fuse incredible flavours on the spot, with the help of liquid nitrogen.  The visit was throughly enjoyed, and we shall be trying the Melbourne venue too.
