Maritime Museum and Sydney Sky Tower

Maritime Museum

Maritime Museum

Another touristy day in Sydney, and first on our list in the Darling Harbour area is the Maritime Museum since it is just across the way from us. Admission is free, special exhibits, including the ships outside are $10-$20. There are also free guided tours available, on the hour each hour. There aren’t many other people there this afternoon, so we get our own guided tour just the two of us. The museum features the history of the immigration of people to Australia with a focus on the ships that brought the people over. There are also some WWII vessels, and Olympic gear as well.  Impressive displays, and interactive displays for children make it a very educational experience.  We didn’t make it to the ships outside, since we have plans to meet up with Andrew’s friend, Adriene, at the Sky Tower.

We walk over to the Sky Tower entrance which is currently under construction. We head up 328 meters in the elevator to get a 36o degree view of the Sydney skyline. While not as tall as the Melbourne or Auckland Tower, it is still a great way to see the city and get an overall perspective. We snap a few dozen pictures and then its time to head back home and get ready for a night of work.
