A day at the aquarium
Sydney's Aquarium was pretty great. Who knew so many fish could be taken out of their natural habitat and put inside a tank. Amazing. Seriously though, it was a really cool place, especially the sharks and manta rays (which were massive). The photos don't do them justice. There were also a couple of dugongs which are basically like manatees only with Australian accents. The ginormous crocodile stuck inside a tiny cage was not so cool.
Positives: Friendly staff, excellent aquatic life, open until 10 PM.
Negatives: Kids. Rampant unsupervised kids. To avoid these things, I suggest taking advantage of the 10 PM closing time when the children should be in bed.
