Sydney - Friday 27 January, 2017

Staying at: Valentine on George - 21 Valentine Street, Haymarket

Possible things to do today: catch a train out to our old stomping ground of Penrith, Luna Park, ferry over to Manly, Barangaroo, Darling Harbour.........we've got a few ideas but will wait and see what the weather's doing and what we feel like doing. :-)

We ended up heading out to Penrith on the train, curiosity got the better of us! Well, nothing has really change out there. They're still working on the station, they were working on this when we left 12 years ago! Nothing much has been done around town. A few new buildings but that's about it. Penrith is looking a bit tired and in need of some tlc and sprucing up.

We walked over to Penrith Panthers and, again, it was pretty much the same as when we left. A new entrance and a new building next door for the iFly (which we plan on doing on the ship!) but the inside is exactly the same and so very dark! We had lunch at Harry's Cafe de wheels which is inbetween Panthers and the iFly and then walked back into town and the train.

One back in Sydney we freshened up a bit in the room and then headed out for dinner. We had seen a pub not far from the hotel with cheap snizzies but on the way to it we passed Mad Mex so ended up in there. The food was yum and a little bit messy!

After dinner we wandered down to Chinatown for.............................cream puffs!! Had to get my cream puffs while I was here :-)
