Back down to Sydney today, more friends to visit. Instead of following the Sydney-Newcastle Freeway all the way back, we got off at Mooney Mooney and travelled the almost unused Princess Hwy winding across the cliff faces – in some sections it almost felt like a ‘ghost’ highway.

We eventually made it to Drummoyne after navigating through a mass of Sydney’s no right turn signs, and after a few laps found a park for the van in suburbia.

We tripped into the city for the afternoon to meander around The Rocks, saw the Sapphire Princess docked in the harbour, quite a site to see such a big ship imposing itself on the harbour. We enjoyed an early dinner/really late lunch at Phillip’s Foote cook your own meat restaurant, followed by some light refreshments at some of the local establishments.
