24th - 28tth November 2001

Saturday 24th

Slept in and did little all day.

Sunday 25th

Went on a coach tour with Jim's tours to Nimbin, a very bizarre place with a museum supposedly about dope but actually full of random things suggesting the designer was stoned at the time. This was followed by a visit to a river where we could float in tyres and to Myon cliffs, which was supposed to be a waterfall but had dried up.

Monday 26th

Set off back to Sydney with Dave and Cerys we stopped for the night in a camp site by the road and I hid in the van so we only paid for two people.

Tuesday 27th

Got to Sydney around midday and after a long walk found a place called Nomads backpackers, a run down building where I had to go out onto the flat roof of the ground floor to get to the dorm.

Wednesday 28th

Got a day ticket for Sydney transport and took a train to circular quay then a ferry to Darling Harbour which had fantastic views of the bridge and opera house.

At Darling Harbour I visited the aquarium, which was very good with lots of underwater areas to see fish swimming round you as you went through a tunnel. After looking round the area a bit more I ended up watching a film about Antarctica at the Imax theatre.

In the evening went briefly to Kings Cross, which is supposedly the nightlife centre but all there seemed to be was kebab shops and strip clubs, no where to go for a pint.
