Sydney Fish Market

Our last two days were full of final adventures down undaaaaa.

A colleague had recommended doing the Sydney Harbor Bridge climb where you are strapped in and actually climb on top of the rigging of the bridge with the cars zooming past underneath you. We were really intrigued by the idea (even though TT is scared of heights) and were looking into it but it was so cold and windy it was way too scary. We opted instead for a nice leisurely stroll across the bridge.

Much like walking across the Brooklyn or Williamsburg bridge (without ANY of the crowds), the 1.5 mile walk was just fantastic and offered amazing views of Sydney. We ended up in Milsons Point neighborhood and meandered around a bit before catching the ferry back to Sydney proper.

Isn’t it cool that your Opal card (Aus version of metrocard) gives you access to all of the trains (inner city and out to the burbs), light rail, and water ferry? You can take the water ferries just like a taxi and take in the beautiful harbor from the water.

We ended our trip at Sydney Darling Harbor Fish Market – a monstrous outpost of fisheries selling fresh and local catches with a delicious food hall cooking your choice of seafood right in front of you.

There’s nothing quite like a fresh seafood market. The smell is overpowering and the floor is always wet and every seafood imaginable sits on ice staring at you waiting to be filleted into a delicious meal.

We were absolutely and utterly stuffed but for the sake of our fans (you are welcome), we snapped up a table and dug in to some raw shucked oysters
