We arrive from the USA early on a Wednesday in March. I am hoping I will sleep on the plane but that is not guaranteed, so I may have lowish energy my first day. From experience, I know I do best not sleeping during the day upon arrival.
Spouse will be busy with colleagues that day, so I am thinking of taking the ferry over to the Taronga zoo. Is there any reason I need to buy tickets in advance online, or can I just walk up when I am ready? I think I can get a combo ticket at the ferry?
Also, the next night I am on my own for dinner. I am looking for a casual place (jeans OK?) with really good modern Australian food, preferably with a view, in The Rocks or near Circular Quay. I am staying CBD and plan to walk to dinner and back.
