An Odyssey Down Under: Australia and New Zealand Day 20

Tuesday, February 25

We spent the morning at the Taronga Zoo. It is Australia’s largest zoo and is located on the shores of Sydney Harbour. It was founded in 1916 and consists of approximately 69 acres. We were in smaller groups for our tour of the zoo with one of the zoo’s docents.

Just a few of the many animals that we visited at the zoo!

From the zoo we had a great view of Sydney across the harbour.

Looking at Sydney from the Zoo.

We took the ferry from the zoo to cross the harbour. We then had a tour of the Sydney Opera House! Our tour was hurried because security was being put in place because the Israeli prime minister was attending the opera this evening. No photos are allowed in the 11 various theaters .

It was great to have the tour this afternoon because this evening we are attending the opera, “Don Giovanni” in the Joan Sutherland theater! At intermission you are permitted to take photos.

It was an evening we won’t forget!
