Our plans changed again. We now have about 24 hours in Sydney. Our flight from Adelaide arrives at 11am, and we leave for home the next day at 2:45pm (this will be the 2nd week in August)
We plan to stay at a hotel near the Circular Quay and do the bridge pylon lookout before leave for the airport.
Question: our international flight leaves at 2:45pm on a Sunday. When should we leave from our harbor area hotel for the airport?
I'm looking for ideas on what to do on the previous day. We should be in the harbor area around noon, and options I was thinking of are:
1. Opera house (of course) and walk around this area
2. Australia museum
4. Harbor cruise: doing it in the afternoon would mean we can't really do much else so I was thinking about doing something at sunset or in the evening. All the dinner cruises seem to be more focused on dinner than seeing the sights. There are some cruises that leave at 5;30, after museums etc.. are closed. Anybody have any recommendations for a cruise?
If we don't go on a dinner cruise, where is a good, special place to have dinner? This is our last day/night so we don't mind splurging.
This is at the end of our 3 week trip in Australia and we will have seen beaches, rainforest, etc... I really don't like big cities, live close to San Francisco so don't need to see "big city" stuff, but would like to see stuff that is unique to Sydney in this really short time. So anybody have any "can't-miss" suggesions or any good half-day tour recommendations (again, don't mind splurging this last time).
