HIGHLIGHTS IN SYDNEY.

  First day in Sydney, we had a half day sightseeing in this city.  And I  just posted before. 


Second day, on 3rd in September. We went to Taronga zoo to watch both the bird show and the seal show.



The bird show.


This parrot picked up  the garbage and then abandoned to a trash box.



Then the seal show.


During the show, my wife got wet by the waves the seals made.


Then we went to Sydney Tower Eye.


Sydney Tower Eye.



We looked St.Mary cathedral from the tower.


Then we took a dinner at Cockle Bay Wharf.


Hot & Cold seafood platter for two.


Third day, on 4th in September. We went to Blue mountains by a chartered car.



Jamison Valley.




Three sisters rocks.


Fourth day, on 5th in September, we went Wild Life(Zoo) at first.


Waiting for a long time, we could see the Koala who opened the eyes.


Tasmanian devil.


Then we watched Andre Rieu cinema concert at the National Theater.


The cinema started from one pm and ended 4pm.




I found small  part of the concert from the You Tube.


Then we got on a Sunset Cruising ship.


Captain Cook Cruiser.


Harbor Bridge.


 We watched fire work displays.

We came home last night.


Thanks for your visiting.

  4. What a marvelous trip you had in Sydney! It has been in my bucket list to visit this interesting place someday and see the cute and lazy Koala Bears. I think most spectators who watched the live performances at their Sea World would be intentionally drenched as part of their memorable fun. You guys must have sat at the front VIP rows.

    Your trip was really well planned as I could see how you could squeeze so many interesting places for each day. I remember my parents also snapped photos of the 2 sisters rock and that was long ago. Your night certainly ended well with the fireworks display and I love that to call it a day.

    I just go back from Manila after a week there and was down with food poisoning for 2 days. Today i have recovered and back to blogging.

  8. What a great tour of Sydney! The animal shows remind me of the San Diego Zoo and Sea World, we saw those a lot when we lived there, except they didn't have Tasmanian devils as far as I can remember. The seafood platter for 2 looks really yummy, and what a beautiful sunset!

      Thank you very much for your comment. I want to go San Diego in a future. I saw many wood made Tasmanian devil boards when I was in Tasmania. But I could not see the devil. But it's very easy to see the devil here.

  14. You packed a lot in to your trip and I'm sure you and your wife came home with many memories.

    Your sunset picture as well as fireworks picture are really great - as well as your koala shot.

  17. 素敵な奥様へのバースデープレゼントですね。オーストラリアならヨーロッパより飛行時間も短くていい選択だったと思います。盛りだくさんのイベントと観光であっという間に日が過ぎたのでは?これを機会に奥様も海外旅行好きになられたのではないでしょうか。あのシーフード、お二人で食べきれました?

    Uma viagem encantadora.
    Gostei muito das aves e do zoo da vida selvagem.
    Nunca vi um coala de perto, nem imaginava como era um demônio da Tasmânia que tem jeito de ser muito bravo e selvagem, com enormes dentes.
    Amei as paisagens!!!

    Uma boa semana, cheia de surpresas agradáveis!
    Beijinhos.

  22. Obviously you enjoyed Australia, Minoru!

    But I was a little shocked to see André Rieu in your post, a dutch musician, that is very popular in Germany as well... ;-)

    1. Dear Uwe.
      Thank you very much for your comment. What kind of shock did you have? We enjoyed his live concert in Tokyo more than 10 years ago.
      I would think Germany people do not like his performance and female members costumes.
      I would think normal concert should be hold in a indoor concert hall. But I think if he were a German musician, he could not do this kind of music.
      BTW, I like his " Second Waltz" music by Shostakovich.

    2. Yes, indeed, the joky "shock" is called "André Rieu"... ;-)

      No harm meant, Minoru-san! Honestly I was more surprised than shocked to see him in your post, because I didn't expect to see this Dutch musician (no, I don't really like him and his tpye of music) in a post of a Japanese travelling to Australia!

      All the best from Germany,
      Uwe.

      Thank you. This New Year I watched a TV program which was a real time New Year Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Concert, conducted by Zubin Mehta. How about Indian conductor?

  27. なんだかとても懐かしいです。オーストラリアとNew Zealandへ3週間の旅をした想い出がよみがえってきました。この動物園にも行きましたよ。私たちには今までにない大旅行。貯金が底をつくのではないかと思いました。 西海岸からは14時間もかかるので、滅多に行けないまさに地の果てに気がしますが、、、斎藤さんたちすごい!うらやましいです。
