Summary
Sydney is the gateway to New South Wales and Antarctica. Here we get a close-up tour of this thoroughly modern city, the oldest and most cosmopolitan in Australia, and learn interesting details about its famous Opera House and Harbor Bridge, an architectural landmark that spans Sydney's largest inlet. We explore the Royal Botanical Gardens, established 1816, and the original site of the first farm on the continent. We see Governor Phillip's statue, in memory of the man who chose this location to begin the colony in 1776. We ferry to the Taronga Zoological Park, situated on the shores of the harbor, and known to have the best view of any zoo in the world; then we visit the Hyde Park Barracks, which was built in 1817 to house its now well-known-of convicts. Next we travel to Cairns, the northernmost city of Queensland, referred to as the "Sunshine State." Here we take a catamaran to the Great Barrier Reef, with its awe-inspiring 900 reefs; then we aerial above the oldest rainforest in the world, and end our tour at an Aborigine village
