The iconic Sydney opera house is definitely worth visiting and it is also an option to scale the Sydney Harbour bridge to take in the great views. One superb place to stop is the swimming pool which is a sea water pool and regularly used for exercise but when the tide comes in you can find yourself swimming with waves crashing over the swimming pool walls!! These pics show that it isn't always sunny in OZ!! Read More »
