    At the very last minute, we decided to attend Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit at the Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House. We could only get row N but that didn't matter. The view was good, the acoutics were good and the play was great. The facilities at the Opera House, from taking your coats to the Bar service were excellent.

    Walking across the Sydney Harbour Bridge is free and very easy to do. Obviously the bridge climb is the more glamorous option but if budget or time or vertigo does not allow, then walking is another option.
    You can start from either end and the walk is only 20 - 25 minutes. Starting at the historic Rocks end, you will finish in Kirribilli where you can catch a ferry or train back pretty close to where you started at Circular Quay.
    The pedestrian path is on the eastern side of the bridge. This is the same side that overlooks Circular Quay and the Opera House but (and its a big but) the views are severely impeded by the tall mesh safety barrier topped with barbed wire. It’s difficult to take a clear photo.
    It is also worth noting that you are walking alongside the traffic. High metal barriers protect you so it’s perfectly safe but obviously there’s a lot of traffic and it’s less pleasant than you’d think.
    The south-east pylon near the Rocks side is open to the public. Halfway up, it has a small museum (free) and a 360 degree observation or lookout deck on top ($19).
    Overall, the pylon is excellent but walking across the bridge is probably a tick-the-box exercise if you want to say that you’ve done it.

    A nice and spaced out garden for a relaxing walk. Worth a visit after visiting the Opera House as they are just next to each other. Although nice, it felt like a huge park unlike the Botanic Gardens in Singapore which is a UNESCO Heritage Site. There is a Government House (the NSW Governor's official residence) within the Sydney Botanic Gardens that is worth visiting.

    Walking the suggested route we saw lots of interesting murals (including several not listed on the tour) as well as street art of varying quality (some of it quite good). We almost quit the walking tour after the first 2 murals but were glad we did not. It turns out that the first 2 may be the least interesting of the bunch. In addition one of the murals seems to have been replaced with another (or we failed to locate it). All things considered it was a very pleasant 90 minutes. Plus there are many cafes to grab a coffee and a snack if so desired.

    The Drummoyne Oval is a pretty ground which is the home of Sydney Cricket Club, who we watched play in the semi-finals of Sydney’s one-day knockout competition. It also hosts matches for the NSW Women team, the NSW mens team occasionally play here, and the touring England Lions recently hammered a NSW select XI here.

    There is a small concrete stand at one end ( the Greg Davis Stand, named after the captain of Australia’s Rugby Union side in the 1960’s who played for the Drummoyne Rugby club, who also play here in the Australian winter ), a small player’s pavilion on one side, a quirky old fashioned small stand with around 250 seats, and then there are grass banks around the rest of the oval.

    There are 6 floodlight pylons, TV gantries at both ends, as well as a large scoreboard in the far corner by a very large tree.

    When we visited there was a small food & drinks outlet open in the side of the Greg Davis stand, with cans of beer or glasses of wine for 5 AUD, and soft drinks for 3 AUD. There were also what looked to be pies and sausage rolls available.

    Entrance to the oval was free for this match, with a small number of people sitting on the grass bank, with everyone else in the Greg Davis stand.

    A fun place to spend a few hours. Plenty to see and loads of eats. Many people with dogs, some of them snappy and yappy.

    Everyone knows the Sydney Harbor Bridge. I would suggest doing the bridge climb as well as the Pylon Museum.

    Sitting amongst the tanks, with a good sound track in the background and the food van dolling out a great selection, we spent a delightful afternoon sharing 2 paddles of top quality craft beer. Ever reliable, Sauce Brewing was a great spot to spend Anzac afternoon. Great selection across the taps, and the 2 up game in courtyard was fun for all.

    This is a small island used as former convict penal establishment, naval ship dockyard. It's a great day tour and does have fully serviced camping options for overnight stays. If you love history, you can opt for one of the guided tours available at about 26$ per adult, its completely worth it.

    Authentic craft Brewery, interesting taps and an easy walk from Sydneham railway station. Bar service at the front of the brewing shed, surrounded by palates of malt and oats. Unpretentious, engaging and good sized pours for those wanting to taste a few. For beer lovers definitely worth a stop.

    A delightful park that runs to the cliff edge. Looking towards the water, it's a pleasant place to stop and take in nature.

    Boys and girls interested in the military will be skipping and climbing about … if you see the big White House above the Watson’s Bay hotel that was the former Army officers mess… our bar and a few rooms were upstairs and our dining area is the large area at the ground floor. The entire area was used as a personnel and discharge unit (2MDPD) after the Vietnam war. It ceased being used as a mess about 1984. Great memories, a great location for natural fauna and fabulous views over Sydney harbour, the Gap cliffs and The Tasman Sea. And if there’s a yacht race or large ship entering or going there’s no better vantage point

    Clean sand, blue water, lots of cafes/coffee spots. Easy walking along the foreshore. Great walk around to Shelley Beach. Nice for swimming, snorkelling, surfing, paddle boarding or justing sitting and enjoying the scenery and people watching
