    There's lots of stuff to do in Syd. Around the city you have Darling Harbour and of coz the Harbour Bridge/Circular Quay/Opera house. Excellent views from and across the Harbour Bridge as well. If you like day trips, you have to go to the Blue Mountains.

    Crumpler is not necessarily cheaper due to the high AUD$ now, but you can check out the shop on George Street anyway. Enjoy!

    There's probably a really good prison somewhere, other than that, just stay in your hotel, its more interesting.

    There are many day-tour trips which you can book, look out for the coupons or brochures at the airport tourist information for a start.

    Sydney aquarium & the harbour is a nice place to spend a day. They also have a bridge that can be swung aside for the bigger ships to pass.

    Yeah you can check out the aquarium, its quite nice.

    Or make a daytrip to featherdale wildlife park in blacktown. You can really get up close and personal to some of the native animals there..kookabura just within arm distance, koalas, kangaroos etc.

    You want us to entertain you or put on a show for you?

    Just don't have high expectations. It's an uber boring place if you are used to the fast paced lifestyle we have over here.

    King Cross at night. It's like our Geylang.

    You don't have to do anything funny, but if you're adventurous enough, can be quite an interesting eye opener.

    Other than that, take the ferries, do the bridge climb, or visit the museums.

    Sydney is easy to get around leh. Most tourist attractions are easily accessible by trains, buses or ferries.

    Here are some of my snapshots:

    Bondi Beach


    Sydney Harbour


    Blue Mountains Spring


    Blue Mountains Autumn


    Blue Mountains

    Even when the dollar was lower, I think it was still cheaper to buy in Singapore
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Yes!!! I totally agree with you.

    I would suggest paying a visit to Blue Mountains. Lovely place. IIRC, its about 3hours train ride. Damn I miss Australia....

    Kiama..... sigh....


    Sydney.... haiz....
