[Now there is a printer friendly version- The Travel Guide]

I’ve just come across this site and its very good. One suggestion is to have an alphabetical listing on the home page to make it easier to find certain things. Kate

[After receiving this comment we added the a Search Engine at the foot of the home page]

Hello Great website. Do you have a list of top things to do with kids? Kind regards Michelle

[Still thinking this one over]

I love your website – my mum comes over from England and as each year goes by, it gets harder and harder to think of new and interesting things to do. Your website never fails me. Emma

There’s the sad side to being in Sydney – having to leave

I live in London and I torture myself with this email – I would love to be there ;-))

I came over on 1990 on a working visa and worked in Sydney in George Street and then travelled all over. My heart is in Sydney and one day I will return. I have 2 kids now and just never had the time or the money to come back.

I also had a job on the River Boat from Pier 1 so I spent a lot of time on the harbour – enjoy the views;-)))))

But not everyone loves it here

Berowra shouldn’t be 74…should be like 100000000000

[so poor old Berowa fell down the list a little]

Nice site but i have to say, what is there really to do in sydney that is exciting? no big theme parks, you could walk the bridge if you can afford it, a cruise on the water is nice but really what about the real exciting stuff? i cant find anything else….help

The short version of our reply [I don’t want to bore, you have come so far]

“Thanks for your feedback and kind words. Many would agree that Sydney should have a large theme park. The industry and government haven’t invested much since the Olympics and its beginning to tell. Anyway, Sky Walk is a cheaper alternative to Bridge Climb: No 6. I don’t want etc and there is the original Harbour Bridge Pylon which is great value but no substitute. Then there is Canoeing, Hang Gliding, Abseiling (Blue Mountains), White Water (Penrith), Racing, Surfing, Jet Boating, Ghost Tours, Swimming with Sharks, Diving and few other adventure type activities.

If you are prepared to travel a little bit there’s Jenolan Caves fours hour west of Sydney and the Snowy Mountains and bit further south. There are also various places you can go hiking and camping…blah, blah, blah

and at Christmas things really get bad:

???? surely you guys can’t be serious, xmas in Sydney, what a joke, no lights, no decorations, very shallow and a lacking spirit, especially for children, I think next year will be spent in my children’s home state of Qld, very poor effort ………………..xmas in Sydney, let me think, NO WAY.

But we would prefer to finish on a positive note:

I wanted to say thank you for your incredibly helpful and informative website. I am going to Sydney for a long weekend next week to catch the last A-league game of the season and wanted to see a bit of the city while I was there. I googled Sydney and came up with very useless, (presumably Government sponsored) websites that told me where the 5 star accommodation and the pricey restaurants were and little else. Your website has given me some great ideas, loads more than I can fit into a weekend, but hey, everyone loves choice. So cheers from this Melbournite and all her mates and keep up the stellar work.
