We were in Sydney for two days back in 2009 before our cruise and stayed at the Four Points Sheraton which was very convenient to all the sights.
We took the water ferry to the Taranuga Zoo and got some awesome pictures of all the animals and some across the harbor. We also went to Sydney Wildlife World and saw the Koala Bears and got our picture taken with them. We also went to the Sydney Aquarium. We walked around the Botanical Gardens and the Opera House. It was awesome. I would love to go back and see the Blue Mountains but with only two days we opted to see the zoos and the city. I have heard that the Blue Mountains are somewhat similar to the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina so if we ever go back we will do them.
