Australia - Sights in Sydney!

And this is where our journey had begun on the 24th of October 2011. Arriving at Sydney airport after a stopover in Melbourne from KL. Back then, AirAsia X didn't fly to Sydney... ah well...
Does this bridge look familiar? I wonder which side copied whom...
One thing that we noticed that certainly informs you that you are no longer in Malaysia is the fact that all these historic buildings are still kept in the midst of development. You wonder why can't Malaysia be like this and why we insist on tearing things down... Why can't we just keep the facade, like so?
And in the midst of all that prime land, is a children's park. Something you will NOT see... becoming quite depressive eh? Ok. I'll stop... I promise coz...
Gull: That pram is unattended... I think I shall attempt to offload there...
Dear Aunty Cecilia and Leanne... Thank so very much for all the planning and being our Tour Guide!
Still serving after all these years...
Now, where are we going...???
And why are we sneaking around in dingy places? Actually this dingy or looks like it, is called The Rocks. And it's quite a famous place, but we were just cutting through to get to the other side.
As you can see, while we were there, it was cloudy and gloomy but it can also make some very contrasty shots. And of course, we have the big cruise ship that came a calling...
Big ship. Small ship.
And all along the way as your walk around the harbour, you have these man hole covers grabbing your attention.
And from here on, are sights of Sydney...

Is the Library really on SALE??? The whole building??? No no. It's just the books or rather some of the books.

A very interesting inscription.
Interior of the Library.

Famous authors.
Sydney Hospital with its equally famous Hog... notice how one end is very different in colour...
Behind the main gates.

St Mary's Cathedral.

Pope John Paul's II statue to commemorate his visit.
Main front entrance.
Remember when we were sneaking around in The Rocks at night? So here we are again in bright sunny daylight during it's Saturday morning market.
In tow...
Self explanatory.

The cruise terminal which looks like the back of a cruise ship!
Anzac War Memorial
Can you see the SkyTower's reflection?
Queen Elizabeth's Building or commonly known as QVB, Sydney's famous shopping arcade.

With its equally famous clocks...
Don't forget to look up!

And a parting gift... an Airbus A380... on the November 8th 2011.

The End.
