Sydney Day 2– 4th Dec

A relaxed start to the day – objective of this trip was NO RUSH and to try loads of different FOODS.

Out of the hotel around 11am, for a quick walk across the Pyrmont Bridge, no more monorail or would have used that!.

 

A 15 min walk to the Queen Victoria Building, first task – Breakfast. We decided on eat at The Tea Room on 1st floor.

 

Breakfast was great, by the time we were done it was close to midday, waited around for the 12’o clock chimes on The Great Australian clock.

(Giant QVB christmas tree by Swarovski – some interesting stats on that)

Roamed about the QVB – lots of window shopping Winking smile. Headed down to the lower levels. Neha and Pooja were very surprised on seeing the underground malls and even more surprised when it got connected to Westfield.

Onto Pitt St mall, spotted the Microsoft Store – this needed a visit. Pooja loved the Surface Hub, Neha was having a ball playing around with the Surface tablets.

Next it was Pooja’s turn to visit the Toy section in MYERs – and do they have a range!! This would be the biggest toy selection I had seen outside of Toys-r-us.

(lots of Pics around the famous sights!)

Being a Friday night, it was a bit difficult getting into the Opera Bar with kids, decided to head off to Bombay to Mumbai Indian in Pyrmont – this place had good reviews on Yelp.

Food was outstanding, as was the Gulab Jamun and Kulfi. The best part for me however was the super cold Kingfisher they were serving – just brilliant!
