Sydney with a group

Ok, so I am bringing some 30 odd teenage girlies to sydney (with a few of their mums) and wondering what we could do in the city for the day? We are staying at olympic park but we have all day and night to hang in the city. They are keen for luna park and the aquarium and waxworks at darling harbour and I'd like to take them to the opera house - any suggestions transport wise how best to manage all this?

Having brought school groups of teenage girls to Sydney from Melbourne in the past, IME the inside of the Opera House is fairly low on their priority list but they will love wandering around the forecourt taking photos of each other.

Other favorite places were Paddy's Markets (I know, I know, but the teenage girls love all that trash), frappuccino at Starbucks in Darling Harbour, Westfield in the Pitt St Mall (Zara and Topshop are always favorites).

Encourage them to ditch the Waxworks - a lot of money for not very much.

Luna Park is at least a half day thing so with only one day, maybe not? It is something they could possibly do in the evening?

Have fun!
