In Sydney happened to be “The Festival of Dangerous Ideas”.  As part of the festival there was a talk in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House, and we had tickets for this event. We were sitting very high up in the CIRCLE.

After the show we enjoyed taking pictures while walking around inside and outside the Opera House.

Excursion to Cremorne

Peter surprised me today with the suggestion that we could go to Cremorne. When I heard this I agreed straight away. What a great idea it was to be spending a wonderful, sunny winter day at Sydney Harbour!

The train from Dapto did get us into the city. From Circular Quay we took a Ferryboat across the harbour and got off one stop before Cremorne. All the time Peter and I took lots of pictures. We entered the Cremorne Reserve. From there we could take breath taking picture looking over the water towards the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

Later on we travelled by bus to the centre of Cremorne where we entered a little coffee shop for a well deserved cup of coffee and a bit of cake. 🙂

After our coffee break we took the next bus to the centre of Sydney from where we caught our train back home. We arrived back home in Dapto at 5,45 pm very tired but happy to have had another beautiful day, making very good use of the marvellous Australian winter weather.
