Today presented another beautiful evening in Sydney. The perfect, balmy weather where you can happily step out in wearing just a cardigan without fearing hypothermia – something us Brits aren’t too used to.
It was perfect, in fact, for a bit of a walk. We set out for Circular Quay and admired Sydney Opera House as dusk settled in as the evening buzz began.
We hopped onto a train and headed across the bridge to Milsons Point to have a peek on the other side of Sydney. Here you can find some pretty spectacular views of the bridge. If you haven’t taken a look already, check out my Sydney Harbour Bridge climb from earlier on in the week.
It looks even more beautiful illuminated at night.
Luckily for us, there was a perfectly timed firework display from the Opera House thanks to the production of Madame Butterfly that was being shown.
It’s an old fairground style theme park – which certainly has an eeriness about it thanks to the slightly creepy smile staring at you upon entry. It’s great fun though, and there are plenty of rides for everyone to enjoy.
I’d recommend having a spin on the ferris wheel to get a better look over the twinkling lights of downtown Sydney at night – there’s something pretty magical about it.
Once you’re done, you can simply hop onto a ferry which will take you back across to Circular Quay in a matter of minutes. It’s a great way to spend an evening.
