Travel > Sydney Day 7: Wax Museum and Strathfield

After having breakfast in our hotel lobby, we went to the Wild Life Sydney Zoo, which was only a short walk from our hotel. This area actually housed 3 attractions: the zoo, the aquarium from Day 2, and Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. The primary goal at the zoo was, of course, to take cute photos of reptiles as usual. Even kangaroos, koalas, and wombats weren’t as cute.

Cute Reptile

On the way out, we passed by a souvenir shop as usual, except this time I saw a good-looking shark fridge magnet. It’s too bad I didn’t buy it, otherwise I could’ve put it on my fridge’s world map.

Using the SIM card’s mobile data, I went to the Oz Lotto website, checked the lottery results, and confirmed that none of us won anything. It would’ve been nice if I could stay a few days behind to collect the extra AUD 40 million, but I guess that’ll have to wait until next time.

Sydney Tower Eye

After going up the elevator and taking sunset view photos from the nearby Sydney Tower Eye, our Sydney relative recommended we go to west of the CBD to #strathfield for dinner at a Korean barbecue restaurant. Exiting Strathfield station, I found the neighborhood quite calm and quiet, probably because it was a Tuesday. It’s now more than 2 months since I ate there (August 11, 2015), so I don’t remember exactly what we ate, but I remember the food being really tasty, just as good as the dinner on Day 2.

Strathfield was also where we said our goodbyes to our Sydney relatives. Thank you for taking us around Sydney’s city center, Featherdale Wildlife Park, Blue Mountain, Olympic Park, Macquarie Centre, and Strathfield. Now all that’s left is Day 8, the highlight of which is my favorite plane ride home.
