Sydney Road trip – 3rd Dec

Start of a short holiday, destination SYDNEY.
Mode of transport: CAR.
Drive time: 12 hours! I don't know smile

To allow for daylight arrival into Sydney, we decided an early start, left Brisbane @ 5am, were aiming for 4:30 but things never go to plan.
Pooja and Neha both excited for the road trip, last time to Sydney was in 2007, unfortunately they had no memory of it other than the pics, it was time to make new memories Smile.

Had made it to Sydney by 4:30pm, however ride to Darling harbour was a further 2 hours! Sydney traffic is heavy. Google took us via Harbour Bridge, great start to the sights!
