|The Rocks district is a very charming area of the city. On Sundays there is a market and the 'Village Square' as it is known, comes alive with an almost Bohemian atmosphere. This part of the city is jam packed with exotic restaurants as well as many mongers of the finest of contemporary Australian cuisine.|
Really touristy things to do would include visits to the Sydney Aquarium, or Maritime and Powerhouse Museums, which are very amusing for the kids and actually interesting for adults as well.
In short, Sydney is that hip and happening place that acts as a kind of unplugged drain, sucking in all sorts to the very heart of its sometimes seedy but always fun atmosphere. Pass a greased up yuppie yapping on his mobile one minute but then turn a corner and be enveloped by a herd of boa-bearing sequinned drag queens. Whatever Sydney may or may not be, it is, at the very least, unforgettable.
