Australia: Sydney – Katoomba

May 10, 16 at 12:42 am

We didn’t have a good start in Sydney. After a stomach twisting domestic flight due to turbulence, we landed safely in Sydney. The weather didn’t help a bit – severe rain fall and cyclonic winds brought halt to our plans. We braved ourselves and walked under the rain to the nearest mall for dinner.

Next day didn’t begin brightly either. The constant rain threatened to cut short our trips and by noon, we ended up at Powerhouse Museum – the only indoor activity we could participate at that time.

The visit to the museum was surprisingly good, informational and educational both scientifically and historically. Our evening truly well spent.

Our 3rd day in Sydney began with yet another wet day and we knew this would be the day where we had to do what we have planned for the past 2 days. So, Sydney Fish Market. Not too shabby although I’d say it catered mostly for tourists as we saw busloads of Chinese tourists swarming the place. I’d still prefer the old school Victoria Market back in Melbourne anytime.
