We have really enjoyed our first couple of days in Sydney. Our hotel is next to the Botanical Gardens, so we get to walk through them on our way to pretty much anywhere. So amazing to see green leaves and flowers even though it’s winter. We spent some time at the Aquarium and Wildlife Center both of which do a great job focusing on Australian animals and sea life of all kinds.
- This is a shingle back lizard. He is designed to look like he has two heads. When threatened he makes his tale stick up like a head and since he’s a skink, if his tale is bitten, it can just drop off. Will’s Koala selfie Budgies! These cockatoos are all over the place, flying wild. We were able to get so close to them at the park this morning. A cassowary. Apparently the worlds most dangerous bird. Not sure why, but we believe it based on looks alone. Some of the flowers in the Botanical Garden. Riding the ferry from Circular Quay by the Opera House, to Darling Harbor. A very fun form of public transportation. And free wifi!
