2018/01/20 A couple of days to visit Sydney
π 2018-01-20 01:01 in Australia, Trips
I flew to Sydney for linux.conf.au and given that it was my 5th time there, I didn't quite go see the basic tourist attractions, given that I had already seen them once or twice, or more.

So this time, I opted for a few different museums:

  • Australia Museum/Natural History Museum in Sydney
  • Comtemporary Art Museum
  • Powerhouse Museum
  • Then, I did of course walk around Sydney a bit, and here are a few pictures:

    After the museusm were closed, I went to the royal botanic gardens to enjoy the views and the birds:

    linux.conf.au was at UTS, clearly an interesting building:

    Finishing the week (albeit not quite the trip) with Australia Day celebrations by Sydney Opera House, didn't suck too much :) [Australia_Day/221*]

    On my last day, I went back to try learning Surfing south of Sydney and while I didn't do great, I at least learned some during the day.

    On the last night, I went to Black Bar and Grill in a fancy hotel/casino to try some Wagyu. Sadly, the smaller and more expensive one of the two was actually the lesser one as far as melt in your mouth, went. Thankfully the 2nd one was not Japan good, but still pretty good:



    It was then time to take the airport train back to Sydney Airport and fly home after trying 3 different lounges in the airport :)
