My parents land in Sydney on a Tuesday at 11.55am and depart 6.55am in transit from Perth WA (so luggage checked through to final destination in NZ). They would very much like to see the Opera House and have lunch somewhere nice within their time scale.
Having looked on this site I see that Circular Quay comes up as a great place to walk around the Opera House and Rocks etc.. what is the best way to get there from the airport? Are taxi's easily available or do you have to fight for them like i do in the States and UK? Is it worth me booking a car in advance to pick them up from the airport and one to drop them back?. I guess it is all logistical questions. I just don't want them to have to rush too much and actually enjoy a bit of Sydney.
Oh and a nice recommendation for somewhere lovely for lunch.. I don't mind booking ahead.
Thank you kindly
