Oz 2006
« on: May 07, 2006, 04:54:26 PM »
just did a three week trip to Australia over Easter. 3rd visit for me but first where we ventured out from Sydney.

Week 1 Sydney
Stayed in the Manly Hotel. Very good, right on the beach.
Toured Sydney Opera House, Taronga Zoo (excellent), AMP Tower, Sydney Aquarium, Darling Harbour. Did the Bondi Explorer trip stopping off at Watsons Bay and Bondi Beach. Completed a long Harbour Tour. Didn't do the Bridge Climb this time around. Caught up with friends in Lane Cove.

Week 2 Gold Coast
Stayed at Sea World Nara resort. Did a couple of trips to Sea World, Movie World and Wet 'n' Wild. Great beaches.

Week 3 north of Cairns
Stayed at the Kewarra Beach Resort. Excellent. Completed Balloon flight, trip to the Barrier Reef for snorkelling, railway to Kurranda and came down on the Sky Rail. Trip to the rainforest.

Overall very good. Won't do the Gold Coast again - too much like being in Florida when we want to see Australia.

Hope to go again in 2 years time.

A mind is like a parachute - it works best when open.
