Parramatta to Circular Quay

on December 29, 2009 in Australia, Wot I Did on My Holidays

It’s A$10 to get to Sydney and back by train, but for an extra A$7 you can buy a ticket that gives you unlimited travel on busses, trains and ferry services throughout Sydney.

With this in mind we caught the train to Parramatta the furthest reach of Sydney Harbour and the ferry from there to Circular Quay (the part of Sydney Harbour that everyone is familiar with.)

The Parramatta river once polluted by industry is now clear and as we passed down the river we saw ibis, pelicans, egrets and most suprisingly a solitary penguin on the bank.
