    Hi Jill take the ferry from circular quay and across to Devonport, it was a time warp ,haberdashery shop, book shops fish and chips in newspaper, we spent a lovely day idling over there. I envy you Sydney is one of my favourite ports but can be exhausting .CG
    Thanks CG. As I plan lots of ferry trips, I will be sure to add Devonport to my list. The longer my list is getting with all the suggestions on here, the more I am glad I will have 6 days to explore at a leisurely pace.

      Opera House and if you want to see a production research the programme on line and book ahead.

      Botanic Gardens can take ages to walk around thoroughly. A park in fact not so much specialist gardens.

      I know you dont want shopping, its not my thing either, but I would try to make time to go to the Queen Victoria Building just to see the interior of the building itself. It is a renovation of a historic building. The mechanical clocks there are interesting too.

      If like us you enjoy museums and art galleries there are several of interest. They tend to mostly be in the same area as the Botanic Gardens.

      We found the HoHo a good orientation experience.

      Hope it all goes well.

        Thanks Mags. I will definitely book the Opera House in advance on line, if something appeals to me.

        Thanks for the tip on the Queen Victoria building, which is now on my list.

          Hi Jill

          https://www.sydneytowereye.com.au/vi...-sydney-tower/

          No one has mentioned the Sky Tower. It is inside the Westfield shopping centre. You go up in the lift to level 5, then get your ticket and they direct you to the lift which takes you to the top 309 meters above the middle of Sydney. Amazing views for miles if the weather is nice. You come out of the lift (which only takes a few minutes) into a very large circular room with floor to ceiling windows. I had to convince my husband to go up and that he would not suffer vertigo. He said it was one of the best things we saw in our 3 days there. Ann

            Thanks Ann. That's another suggestion for my list and there was I wondering how I would fill 6 days.
