Excellent to visit although Taxis have set charge from port to city, 10$nz pp wherther there are 2 or 4 in taxis, Taieri Gorge Railway(76nz$pp) is great value and you just take an early taxi from port to stn and pay on arrival, you can book online if you wish, local bus from city back to port takes 35mins and costs 3nz$pp and drops you off outside port gates.

The Te-Papa museum is free and excellent it can take all day to explore if you wish but it can be done in 2-3hrs, the shops are varied and good views can be had if you go up the cable car(5nz$)rtn or 3 one way, then a walk back down through the Botanic gardens. A taxi for 3 from or to the ship costs around 15nz$.

What can you say about SYDNEY that has not already been said by others, the only word for it is FABULOUS, great place to see, eat or sightsee, it is cheaper to eat out than in, tour buses HoHo 25au$ are great value and visit Bondi etc, as are the Ferries from Circular Quay, get a day ticket 14au$ which gives unlimited travel on ferries and buses, the Opera House is well worth visiting as is Darling Harbour. We also hired a car and visited the Blue Mountains which are great on a clear day but it rained on our visit, the visitor centre there provided lots of information and a free film show of the area and history. We also visited Botany Bay Wildlife park 7au$ per car entrance, where you can visit the place where Capt Cook 1st landed in Australia.there is also a visitor centre which has an interesting film showing Australian Wildlife, we then drove to Cape Solander a popular whale watching spot.
