Train to Central
One of my friends dropped me off at the local station, and I got on the train to Central. Once there, I transferred to Town Hall so I could walk downhill with my bags to my hotel at World Square.

As expected (it was about 10 am) my room wasn’t ready, so I left my bags with the concierge, and then walked to the Queen Victoria Building, to meet up with my family (parents, aunt, sister & nephew). The bells were ringing at St Andrews Cathedral.

There was a piper playing out the front of the building.
We all caught up and had some food (I had poached eggs on toast – my favourite). We headed to my parent’s / sister’s / aunt’s apartment, they got organised, and then we headed off to Darling Harbour.
We wandered through the southern end of Darling Harbour, and my nephew played on the equipment, went went on the carousel (thanks, Auntie D!) and had a great time. It’s a great park for kids!
We then made our way to Harbourside and we had Spanish for lunch – my sister and I shared some tapas (thanks again Auntie D!). My nephew, mum, my aunt and myself all went on the Ferris wheel and had a great view.
To the north of Harbourside is the Australian National Maritime Museum. We didn’t go in but had a look at the ships from the shore.
Right next to the museum is the Welcome Wall, where migrants can have their names engraved.
