Australian Wanderings, Part 7

Another day of wandering and discovering in Sydney. We started off at the Australian National Maritime Museum, wandered around the Darling Harbour/Pyrmont area, and then headed off through Chinatown (very clean and graffiti-free, unlike Toronto’s Chinatown) to the famous Paddy’s Market in Haymarket. After lunch at Paddy’s, we walked to the impressive Powerhouse Museum and saw displays about everything from the history of contraceptives to Victorian era steam locomotives. So many treats for the eye and the mind! On tomorrow’s agenda: a tour of the Sydney Opera House at 9am, a stroll through the Pitt Street Mall, and then watching Jungle Book - The Musical at the King Street Theatre. Our friend Maria and her husband, Markus, operate the King Street Theatre ( - this will be the first chance for us to see one of their productions. “This is not the Disney version,” warns their publicity!
