Sydney Bus Tour

My first full day in Syndey, I bought a ticket to take a bus tour of the Blue Mountains.  This was an all day excursion that included several scenic vistas, some time at Scenic World, and then a ferry ride back to the Harbor.  Well worth the ticket.  Some of the things I saw:

  • Several unique boats, including a paddle boat and the “Starship Sydney”
  • The harbor control tower – never seen a control tower for a harbor
  • Couple of tall ships
  • Drawing of a kangaroo that was shot with an arrow – carved in stone
  • Outdoor amphitheater with a camping area
  • Old coal mine
  • An actual Australian coal unit train.  It was very cute.  The cars were small as was the length of the train itself
