It is so difficult to wake up at 5:30 am to catch a taxi. But anyway, we are managed to arrive at Cessnock to take the bus back to Morisset Station. The taxi fee is around 50 AUD. We should have stayed in a hotel in Cessnock so that we don’t need to pay the taxi fee.
Here is the bus stop in Cessnock where we took the bus back to the Morisset station. This bus stop is right outside of the Cessnock Main Library.
There are a number of people in the Morisset Station in the early morning.
Finally, we returned to Sydney at 10 am and dropped off our bags at our hotel. Super cool coffee machine at the hotel lobby of the York By Swiss-Belhotel.
We had a quick breakfast in Hungry Bean right next to our hotel.
After a breakfast, we went to darling harbor. There was a long queue outside of the Sea life Sydney Aquarium.
While we are in the queue, my husband suddenly had a flash of intuition that we can buy the tickets online. The price is much cheaper online. Therefore, we paid online for a package for visiting both the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium and the Wildlife Sydney Zoo. The Wildlife Sydney Zoo is right next to the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium.
The highlights of the Sea life Sydney Aquarium are the Dugong and Shark tunnel. The Dugong is also being called as Sea Cow. They are cousins of manatees. As marine mammals, they graze on seagrasses in shallow coastal waters of the Indian and western Pacific Oceans.
The penguin ride inside the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium is like immersing in an amusement park. This is a short ride for around three to four minutes and you will see a lot of cute penguins swimming and walking clumsily. Anyway, the ride is quite cold.
Some other photos of the lovely penguins and other sea life creatures.
A magnificent view of the aquarium.
Right next to the Sea life Sydney Aquarium is the Wildlife Sydney Zoo. There are a few tracks at the zoo where you can walk and be very close with the kangaroo. Quokka, Wombat and Tasmanian devil.
The Wombat asleep like a drunk man.
With his little friend.
Koala is right next to the canteen. You can pay extra money to enter the koala zone and take photos with them cheek-to-cheek. But I prefer to stay a distance to enjoy my own lunch.
The saltwater crocodile is huge with six metres from tip to tail and weighs 1200 kilograms. You can take a closer look at it with the glass window.
Here is the schedule of the talk inside the Wildlife Sydney Zoo.
We had some drinks in a restaurant near the harbor.
A seagull is enjoying his chips on a table next to us. Luckily he did not choke himself.
In the opposite side of the harbor, there are some shopping malls where you can enjoy your shopping time.
The Maritime Museum also located nearby the harbor.
Then we walk around the Townhall station. It is a place for shopping!
Tonight, we bought a steak and enjoy a simple dinner at home.
