For our Sydney stay we bought mymulti3 for $63 ea covers ferries, trains and busses.
We took lots of ferries.

We're staying on Darling, took ferry to circular quay (pronounced key) and stumbled on a French festival. Coffee and egg and ham on brioche. Then pan au choc. Walked up quay to Opera House and hopped the next ferry to Manly Beach. Luckily this ferry went without incident.
While walking the SeaWalk we were on the look-out for penguins, but there were no penguins, just impressive panoramas.

Manly beach. Evergreens and palm tree combo. Watched Surf lessons.

Moo gourmet burgers for lunch. My meat did not moo. I ordered a Kangaroo burger and chips. This is one meat that doesn't taste like chicken. Looks more like and tastes more like beef- a lean beef topped with beet relish.

Walked the market where we bought a Manly Beach travel poster.

Rigoletto: Our first opera. Together and as individuals. It was overwhelming to see our first opera at The Sydney Opera House! Was underwhelmed with opera house interior. Impressed with music. Thanks to the cliff notes prior to, and English subtitles on digital screen above stage during, we could follow story line. Even with cheat sheets, things did get a bit muddled, but the gist was, the men were upset with the court jester mocking men who were upset his wife/daughter/mistress was taken by the duke. Women are changeable like the wind. When courting yet another taken woman, whom was taken by the duke's swagger, lauren couldn't help herself, commenting, "what a dick".

From opera to techno. We wined and pulsed at an outdoor rave, then strolled back to our hotel at darling harbor via Koreatown for bibimbap and pork dumplings.
