Thanks very much Mehdi. Sydney is a wonderful city especially when viewed from the harbour.

I gave my kids their first introduction to Sydney via Rivercat on the harbour they loved it

Hi Mum and Kids,

It really is a great ride from Parramatta to the City, especially in the morning. Glad the kids enjoyed their discovery of Sydney. I was smitten as a 7 year old visitor by a walk on the Bridge and a ride on the Manly ferry. And having lived there for 14 years until recently, I had the unmeasurable pleasure of taking many international visitors on discovery tours of this great city. And at night it gets even better, even in the rain!

Keep the kids exploring and they will thank you for it in years to come, again and again.

I loved every moment of my first Road trip to Sydney from Whyalla in South Australia, driving around Paramatta literally did my head in, it was fun though I had my kids with the camera in the back of the car filming while I was driving. I plan on doing this more often, I have also just recently found out about geocaching that is going to add another demension to our travels.

In August last year when I first went to Sydney I did the Bridgeclimb as well as a Skywalk it is an awesome place to be. I always thought Adelaide was pretty but the Blueness of Sydney and how green everything was the trees dispelled my thoughts about it being a concrete jungle.

Hi Gen,

You made the comment that Sydney seemed so blue and green! Knowing now that you come from Whyalla, it is not a surprise to me any longer. Sydney's harbour is pretty special, and there are miles of foreshore walks to enjoy. And when you have exhausted that or rather when you are exhausted by it all, there is Pittwater, Broken Bay, the Hawkesbury and Brisbane Water to explore in the north of the city, and Port Hacking plus Botany Bay and Georges River in the southern suburbs.

And don't forget the beaches, and to have the twins take the camera for a night around Circular Quay and Darling Harbour.

After all it deservedly is Australia's premier city.

Are you going to become a contributor to Panoramio?

All the best,

Ian (currently in Tonga in the blue and green Pacific)

Hello Ian Yes I am very much a contributor to Panoramio many of my photos already in use on Google Earth which I am totally stocked about. I do a fair bit of work in Road Safety these days, to make something positive come out from my sons road crash, his roadside memorial is also on Google Earth In December I took 4 of my kids over to Sydney I guess to not only have the experience but to show my kids that there is much more to Australia than just Whyalla to Adelaide, and hopefully to appreciate how big and diverse Australia is.
