Sydney Day 2

sunny 23 °C

Laura and I split up again this morning as she wanted to explore some of the places I had been yesterday, whilst I was eager to go to the zoo (mainly to see some koalas)!
This was my first taste of the Sydney ferries, which were very easy to use and give some great views of the city.

The zoo was very easy to walk around, and had plenty of information available. They are doing quite a lot of work there to open a new Savannah enclosure, but there was still plenty to see, including a platypus and wombat!

Once I got back I explored the Rocks district a little bit. This is a much older part of the city centre, and had a nice feel. From here I got a really good view of the harbour bridge.

My last stop of the day was to walk up to the Opera house itself. From afar it actually looked much smaller than I imagined, but close up you could see the size of the building.

Unfortunately my foot was really hurting by this point, so I hopped on the train to cut 20mins off my walk back, and rested in the airbnb a bit whilst preparing for tomorrow!
