Just as Gold Coast, Surfers to be specific, was growing on to me, we set off with our friends to Sydney for 6 days. Our planned itinerary for Sydney included more beaches, Blue Mountains, sky diving, Opera house, Luna Park and others. Blue Mountains and sky diving plans didn’t materialize as temperatures dropped to under 10 degrees and we weren’t prepared with clothing to embark on both. Nonetheless, we made full use of our transport pass that allowed for unlimited train (a particular colour zone) and ferry rides, by heading up to Watsons Bay and Bondi Beach. We took a leisurely stroll one morning up to the Opera house while stopping at the Royal Botanic Gardens and churches along the way. And, ended our time in Sydney with a short trip to the Luna Park.
Took Virgin Airlines from GC to Sydney.
As the name suggests our hostel was actually railway cabins instead of actual rooms. How cool is that?! It felt like we were in some makeshift room that might move while we were asleep. Like overnight trains with sleeping facilities.
We didn’t get rooms here so settled for Railway Square YHA. Might have been a blessing in disguise since railway cabins were so much more fun!

P.S. All images you will be seeing about my Australia travel adventures belong to me (solosingaporean) unless otherwise stated. Most of them have been shot by the (talented) sister using her Canon 500D with 18-55mm kit lens. Be kind and give credit where credit is due. Cheers!
