In late 2012, Jetstar were offering $29 airfares to Sydney. We hadn't been to Sydney for a few years and figured it was about time to go again! Tickets were bought and the dates entered into the calendar.

We left Melbourne from Avalon on a 6am flight - while this in itself isn't too bad, the airport is an hour from home and we needed to be there 30 min before departure. The alarm clock was set for 3am...

First day there was sightseeing. We took a drive around Sydney, across the bridge and out to Manly.

Despite the haze, the view from Vaucluse was fantastic!
