Day 3 – Queen Elizabeth Sydney – Tasmania – Sydney Cruise

Queen Elizabeth arrived in the port of Hobart early in the morning, although we have been to Hobart before, our arrival by a cruise ship was a first and a truly memorable one. As the ship approached and maneuvered to its dedicated berth, we could smell and feel the cool air of Hobart, after all it was a chilly day at 14 degrees. Sydney may have been hot and sunny when we left but autumn had arrived in Hobart offering a pleasant change.

A Day in Watsons Bay, Sydney

Accessible by public transport such as bus, ferry, water taxi and by car, Watsons Bay is definitely a must place to tick off for visitors to Sydney. By car, it’s about a half hour drive from the city, but the ferry will give you the option to see the magnificent Eastern side of Sydney by water.

Woronora Dam, a great picnic spot

If you’re looking for a good picnic area in a secluded bushland setting alongside spectacular water views then the Woronora Dam is definitely worth visiting, located on the Wonorora River on Sydney’s Southern fringe. It’s less than an hours drive from the city on the Princes Highway, bear right continuing on the Highway where it splits to become the Princes Motorway. Passing through Waterfall and its large railway station, the turn-off to Woronora Dam Road will be sign posted a short drive up and will a right hand turn off the Highway.

An escape to Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest

Christmas holidays maybe over but summer is just hitting its peak. Baby it’s scorching hot outside! Yes, most parts of Australia have been bracing for heatwaves over the last few days and the best place to cool down is definitely by the pool or beach. If you still have some holiday break left, check out the unsurpassed beauty of Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest of New South Wales about a 2 – 1/2 hour drive North of Sydney.
