Onwards to Sydney

28 December was spent travelling down from Hayman to Sydney.  A 10am departure from the resort, by launch to Hamilton Island airport.

The airport is a basic departures hall attached to a runway, and a short 2 hour hop to Sydney on a Qantas 737-800.

Transfer was again very smooth, in to the Shangri-La on The Rocks, 26th floor with a great harbour view.  We’ve booked a spot in the Botanical Gardens for New Year’s Eve, mainly for the 9pm fireworks, but we could equally have a good view from here (although a trip to Bottle-O might be required given the minibar prices…)


Room with a view!

We had barely checked in when we headed off out for the evening – boys to the cricket, girls to the circus.

The cricket was a Big Bash match between Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat. A good 50 from Eoin Morgan was overshadowed by a penultimate ball loss (Match report for those interested!).



The girls loved the circus which was full of old-fashioned acrobatic acts.
