THE OLD MANOR HOUSE

SYDNEY

HOME PAGE UP

Our first trip to Sydney proved not to be our last as we went back again just over a year later.  Pretty well everyone who has had the good fortune to visit Sydney seems to say it is one of their very favourite cities and we thought exactly the same way.  This was only a two day stop-over and we were at an hotel rather than exchanging.

The hotel was at Darling Harbour and, on the day of our arrival, it was the final day of the Sydney Boat Show so the harbour was alive that evening.  We did all the usual things within the time available to us.

So, after Sydney we set off to our exchanger's holiday place at Surfer's Paradise, south of Brisbane.  Go there!
