We had a whole day in Sydney before we had to board the boat. So we took a ferry over to sydney Harbor and explored the Sydney Wildlife Zoo.

That had to be the highlight of the start to my bucket list vacation. The zoo had the top 5 animals of Australia and was located right on the wharf. Besides a Koala exhibit, you could go to the rooftop and get your picture taken with the Koala. That had to be a major check off my lifetime experiences list!. But before the reaching, the roof we went through the butterfly conservatory, into the frog exhibit, the crocs, snakes, and platypus.

 It was not busy at all and they allowed us to take our time with the Koalas and even use our camera as well as paying for professional shots. I can’t describe what a rush it was to be so close to these bears.

We boarded the solstice and found the ship to be delightful, which was a good thing as this trip has numerous sea days.
