|Views to Sydney Harbour|
After spending a little cash, we headed over to Darling Harbour. This area is full of restaurants and cafes, so we did what we do best; ate!
This was one of the funniest things we have seen all holiday!
Our final day in Sydney, Friday 30 March 2012, started with a walk around the Botanical Gardens; the best example of a botanic garden we have seen on our tour.

The only part of the gardens we didn't spend too much time in was where the spiders were hanging out. The one below was literally the size of a hand.
The gardens are also home to a large population of Flying Foxes, a type of bat. Flying Foxes only feed on nectar, blossom, pollen, and fruit. Their senses of smell and eyesight are very well-developed to locate food. When feeding they crash into foliage and grab hold of it, then swing upside down before drawing food into its mouth with one of its hind feet or with the clawed thumbs at the top of its wings.

We wandered back to Circular Quay and listened to the Aborigine didgeridoo player for a bit before heading up to the Observatory for a great view of the Harbour Bridge.

|View from Observation Park|
The final Sydney landmark from our week was Harry's. His 'kitchen' has been serving pies, coffees and other snacks for over 60 years, and the hundreds of photos of famous folk who have eaten there seem to endorse his grub. We just took a picture!
