I never forget

as we come back over the harbour...about to land at SYD I start....all together now..

I've been to cities that never close down,
From New York to Rio and old London town,
But no matter how far or how wide I roam,
I still call Australia home.

I'm always trav'lin',
And I love being free,
And so I keep leaving the sun and the sea,
But my heart lies waiting — over the foam.
I still call Australia home.

All the sons and daughters spinning 'round the world,
Away from their families and friends,
But as the world gets older and colder and colder,
It's good to know where your journey ends.
But someday we'll all be together once more,
When all of the ships come back to the shore,
I realize something I've always known,
I still call Australia home.

But no matter how far or how wide I roam,
I still call Australia, I still call Australia,
I still call Australia home.

Great pics!

I went to Vivid on Friday night and it was really well done. Customs House and the Museum of Cont Art reminded me of Disney

Loads of people around too, which wasn't unlike Disney!

As far away as we are from all the Disney parks in the world, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

and we discovered a hidden secret !

There is a lift near the Quay building on the eastern side before you go around the corner to the toaster building, it looks like a service elevator, but it takes you up to the road deck on the Cahill Exp -

There is a walkway up there, there was no one up there, and glorious views -

Although DH wouldnt cross the road to take a picture of customs house for me!

Yeah,
If only I had that sort of view from my house!

not mentioning that it took 2.5hours to drive in and park the car, should only be an hour, thats the downside of Sydney

Guys I work with created it and they will be adding more balloons to try and increase the reflectivity

You can find it near the International Passenger Terminal on the Harbour Bridge side

We were there reasonably late - a lot of the balloons had deflated on that one.
