Woke up today feeling sad that our trip was nearly at an end. It definitely didn't feel like I had left home 6 weeks ago, in fact it felt like no time at all. The day greeted us with rain absolutely chucking it down. After dropping off our bags for storage at a hotel near the train station I donned my raincoat to head to the Sydney Opera House in the hopes of booking a tour for later in the day. Tickets were available for the afternoon, so we chose a 2:30pm time and instead headed onto the ferry to Manly. Thankfully the clouds started to part at this point, and we were treated to more sunshine.

We had to head back quite soon in order to get on our tour of the Sydney Opera house. I was surprised by how much I loved the tour. It was really interesting and a great chance to see inside the building, plus our guide Suanne was really great and made the hour fly past.

Sadly, it was now nearly time to head to the airport. We collected our bags and headed on the train a bit early in order to try and beat rush hour. I absolutely loved my time in Sydney and definitely want to go back one day, despite the idea of another 28hrs of travelling!
