King's Park was perfect for a picnic overlooking Perth City
we spent a couple of days @ Cottesloe beach which was so nice
and we had a good road trip to "York"
One day we got the ferry to Rottnest Island and hired bikes !!
There are some gorgeous beaches on the island
This is The Basin
On a trip to Serpentine dam we came face to face with a kangaroo !! so cute
and a gorgeous waterfall / plunge pool
For Easter we headed off on a camping trip to the wine region @ Margaret river.
Check out the "swan" towels
We were camping near a village called Cowaramup, there were cow statues all over
We enjoyed seeing some more amazing beaches
footprints in the sand
Gary did some fishing one morning
before heading off to do some wine tasting !! @ http://www.laurancewines.com/
We went to Yallingup beach, where they do the surfing competitions the waves were awesome
Western Australia was a great experience and a gorgeous part of the world
Then it was Sydney here we come !!
Sydney really got to us !! we just wish we had gone to Sydney for longer.
Again I had done my research and we had booked 4 nights in the Meriton Serviced Apartments on Campbell Street and it was fantastic for the money
Our first breakfast in Sydney
It was literally over the road from the theatre (this is view from the apartment window)
The apartment was a twenty min walk down to Circular Quays
and a 10 min walk to Darling Harbour.
we had a lovely meal @ http://www.waterfrontgrill.com.au/ and cocktails at http://www.margaritavilleaustralia.com/ in Darling Harbour
Would recommend the opera house tour
We enjoyed a bottle of fizz and a sharing platter in one of the bars on the harbour after our tour for about £25 fantastic location
and watched the sunset
The Sydney Harbour Bridge walk was fantastic (make sure you book) it was an amazing experience
This was the view from the top of the brick towers
(as you are not allowed to take your camera on the Bridge Climb)
another group above doing the climb
We are looking forward to going back to do the night time climb. It is quite expensive but it is well worth it the views are out of this world.
The hotel below is where all the stars stay
We had a lovely Italian in "The Rocks" after the bridge climb http://ziapinatherocks.com.au/ the food and wine were gorgeous and the service was great too
We got a ferry to Manly one day
This was the beach at Manly
On our last night we went to see The Lion King
Sydney is an amazing place and everyone was so friendly.
The holiday of a lifetime !!
