I went to a place called Wiruna. It is the dark sky site of the Astronomical Society of New South Wales ASNSW. 150 miles northwest of Sydney. We spent 3 nights observing the southern stars and contellations.

I would love to see cockatiels in free flight, as well as budgies and other Australian parrots.

While visiting, I ended up across the harbor from Sydney in a beach town called Manly Beach. I fell in love with it and ended up staying there every time I went. It was a 30 minute ferry ride from Circular Quay. In fact - I also fell in love with Circular Quay, which is not really considered a tourist attraction, in itself. But, it is the center of Sydney Harbor and where the Opera House is located, along with the botanical gardens, shopping and nice, outdoor patio restaurants. You can walk to downtown Sydney from here, too. I love this place - even just to hang out.

I've only been once and it certainly was nowhere near long enough. But my absolute favorite thing to do was the penguin parade on Phillip Island. You've never seen anything like it! Do a search for it and you'll see what I mean. So cute!

Thanks for your comment singalprett, Sydney is a very pretty place. But I would encourage you to spread your wings a little if you ever come to Australia. This land is very big and has many, many different aspects, from cold snowy mountains, to dry dusty deserts and wonderful lush green moist rainforests. It's a little surpise packet singalprett, and I hope you get the chance to come and see it for yourself.

Cheerio for now

Australia is a heaven of tourist and visitors and I love to go there again and again. There are many places where you can go and spend your vacations I like the most is Sydney, Melbourne and Queensland for my vacation destination. These are my favorite places.

We spent a few days in Cairns and it was beautiful; the reef was really close, we saw crocodiles in the wild and took a tour through the rainforest

Yes Heather, even as an Aussie living here, and having travelled extensively throughout Australia over my entire adult life, there is still more to see. We're heading off again soon, this time to visit our nations capital city Canberra. I'll be writing about that soon.

Thanks Heather for your contribution to this forum. Stay well

Cheerio for now
