Today we took the bus and train to the Australian Technology Park on the far side of Sydney. We used our Opal cards (similar to London’s Oyster card) which you just tap on a machine as you get on and off the transport. As it was a Sunday the travel was free after an initial $2.50 (£1.50) deduction.
We took a bus into the city centre, then hopped onto a train to the exhibition park (where we visited a Cruelty Free Festival). After a browse around the vegan friendly stalls we caught a train back to Circular Quay for some lunch. Another train back to the city and finally a bus home to Buddy. All for $2.50! Shame about the noisy kids but you can’t have everything.
The transport system is very easy and efficient to use but sadly you can’t take dogs on the buses, trains or ferries. Although knowing Buddy he would probably try and eat the bus driver.
Off to the airport shortly in the Ute to collect Sarah and the Bearded One.
