    • Thanks!

      Yes, the Sydney harbour area offers stunning views. I thought I knew the Sydney opera house in and out from postcards. But when I actually made it there I was still blown away!

      And when you look back you get to see Sydney’s spectacular skyline and the harbour bridge. Not bad for such a remote place ;-)
