The new sails were delayed in transit so we had a
couple of days to kill in Mackay. Andrea and I decided to fly down to
Sydney for a short visit. It felt weird being back in a major
city after visiting the villages and towns of the Pacific islands.
We were only in Sydney for a couple of days so it
was a push to cram all the "must sees" into our time there. On day 1 we visited the Aquarium, Harbour Bridge and Opera
House. On day 2 we did the Skywalk on the
revolving tower, took a ferry trip to Manly Beach and then spent a
couple of hours at the Sydney Boat Show (which just happened to be on
during our visit).
