I chose this image because I’m taking Girlchild and her cousin to Sydney for three days in the school holidays. So I feel very much like one of those Ladies of a certain age who would chaperone young ladies to Bath in a Jane Austen novel. I’m sure the Travelodge won’t be as ritzy as this, though.
This is a question for all bloggers, lurkers and Sydneysiders in particular: what are good things for sixteen-year-olds to do in Sydney?
I’ve had some good suggestions from Facebook:
Catch the Manly ferry to Manly and walk around there
Hang out at Bondi Beach
Ice skating at Fox Studios if they’re into ice skating
Paddington or Balmain or Glebe markets on a Saturday
Powerhouse museum (“sneakily educational”)
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert musical (this met with great approval, but they’ll be coming here to Melbourne in that week; Murphy’s Law.)
Thanks for those suggestions. Any others? We’ll probably be going to see the Cops. Yes, I know, if we’d gone during APEC we could have seen thousands of cops for nothing. Anyway, I expect them to be exceedingly diverting.
