We've enjoyed it, although the cricket result dampened my husband's enthusiasm for a couple of days! NYE was brilliant and we have commented on our experience in another thread on NYE feedback, so enough said on that area.
Pricewise, Sydney is very similar to London. We walked a lot, having considered before arriving that we would get MyMulti tickets. Actually, we didn't need them. We did the tourist stuff and found the hop-on/off bus good for getting an initial overview of the city and out to Bondi. The botanic gardens are great but I was not impressed by Sea Life which was horribly overcrowded and poor value for money. We were going to do a self-organised Blue Mountains day trip, but calculated that the itinerary of a small tours company fitted our needs well and did away with the hassle of self-organising for a modest premium over fares/fees. We think we have photographed every rivet of the harbour bridge from every conceivable angle and seeing the opera house close up reveals that it is a truly magical architectural icon.
Food and drink isn't cheap but we have had some great meals. Best meal was Fish At The Rocks and the runner-up was The Woods at the Four Seasons. A couple of pub meals were indifferent but that's the luck of the draw. It is very refreshing that restaurant staff are not chasing tips as happens all the time in e USA and Europe.
Thanks Sydney and Sydney-siders! We are now moving on to Adelaide and Perth: it's a dynamic trip!
