Leaving the animal park, we went up in the mountains and stopped at a breath-taking huge valley, where we were supposed to see the 'Three Sisters', three tall striking rock formations standing next to each other. Legend has it that the three sisters were chased by someone, and their father, in order to save them, turned them into stone. Unfortunately, a huge persistent cloud had come down in the valley and we weren't able to catch a glimpse. Thomas did however come close to a really nice, a bit scary looking aboriginal who played the didgeridoo.
After landing at Circular Quay, we made our way to the Rocks, a previously dodgy, now posh and picturesque beautiful suburb nearby. There we had dinner at the Australian Hotel. This was recommended to us a classic pub- hotel, dating back to the 1910's, with a specialty in kangaroo pizza. And indeed it was delicious!
We finished the day with a drink at a posh bar on the Harbour opposite the opera. It's worth mentioning, that everyone there was either in suits or expensive dresses, and we were in our backpacking outfits. We were quite a sight!
Sharing our story
Due to a weather forecast warning us about storms, we decided to sleep in and have a chilled Thursday. Indeed we woke up after noon, only to go out and see a bright blue sky with no clouds in sight. Not to lose our cool for wasting a good beach day, after having lunch in Chinatown (Mina did, Thomas had a sandwich afterwards), we decided to cross the Harbour bridge and go to Northern Sydney, where we wandered in a pretty, more resident-friendly area with a beautiful view to the Opera, the Bridge, the city and dozens of sailing boats.
