Australia Trip – Sydney Day 3

We decided to have our brunch at the famous Sydney fish market.

Maybe Tasmania spoiled us with its mouth-watering seafood. We found the seafood here in the Sydney Fish Market quite disappointing. We suspect it may because of the overwhelmed tourists and the stalls cannot maintain the quality of the seafood that they sell.

Both the texture and the flavor of both the oysters and sea urchin are just not right. I would not recommend going to this place as there are too many people. It is fine to treat it as a tourist attraction but please don’t put hope for the seafood.

However, the fruit market there is good and cheap. I would recommend the fruit market there.

With around 5 minutes of walking distance, we arrived at the Wentworth Park light rail station.

We took a light rail to Paddy’s Market which opens from Wednesday to Sunday.

You can compare this market with the women street in Hong Kong which sell many different kinds of stuff ranging from souvenirs, cloth, phone case to massage.

The Paddy’s Market is right next to the China Town. Taking a walk there and you will find many familiar Chinese shops.

The rocks area is within walking distance from our hotel. The rocks area is like a Soho with many shops.

We had dinner at the Pancakes on the Rocks and this is a very famous restaurant recommended by the travel book.

This is the food menu of the Pancakes on the Rocks.

This is the Thai Chicken Crepe.

Honestly the pancake there is not that good. We ordered the Devils Delight as I was such a chocolate lover. Anyway, the pancake looks very chocolate but the taste is not.

We consumed too many calories and its time for us to take a long walk.

The contemporary art museum is just right next to the Circular Quay. There are two floors of art exhibition free for entry. It closes at 8 pm on Wednesday.

There is a cafe on the top floor which provides you with a magnificent view of the opera house.

In the Circular Quay, we found a travel map and it goes to many places including the Taronga Zoo.

Finally, around a ten minutes walk from Circular Quay, we arrived at the Opera House. Jørn Utzon is such an ingenious architect.
