Bondi Beach was the tourist attraction I was most excited for. I’ve been seeing pictures and hearing good things about it from people who have been before. Only, our idea of sunny weather and swimming in the ocean was not made possible with the overcast of gloomy, grey clouds. It was even drizzling at one point. Instead of heading down to the beach itself, we made our way down to Bondi Icebergs club (the one with the famous lap pool) and satisfied ourselves with cups of coffee, ham & cheese sandwiches and warm croissants. Luckily, by the time we finished eating the weather cleared up. A few of us walked down to the beach to see the graffiti walls. With breathtaking paintings along the wall, a mini photo-shoot was inevitable. Don’t forget to bring your cute poses and brightest smiles when you visit Bondi.
We then had lunch at Queen Victoria Building. I think it’s unique that the mall was designed to follow the conventions of a British castle. With that in mind, I paid close attention to the architecture and interiors. Too bad we couldn’t have a cup of tea and a few scones (just kidding). QVB is worth visiting either to have lunch or go shopping. And bringing a camera might be handy too. I mean, who wouldn’t want to take a picture of the glorious Queen Victoria statue?
And that concludes this short Australia 2016 post. Next up: The Sydney Zoo and Aquarium.
