I am planning to go to Sydney in Nov. Problem is that I am bringing my 18mths old gal. I need to bring her along cos nobody can help to take care of her and I have always wanted to visit Sydney. I like Australia! Have visited Melbourne and Gold coast few yrs back and really like both places!
Have read alot of comments in this thread and gather that Sydney is very much like S'pore. But I still hope to visit this place.
My plans in Sydney is to stay 1 nite at Blue Mountain and probably 1 N at Hunter Valley(still deciding cos I dun koe will it be very boring there)Explore the city and outskirt. At first, I thought of driving during my stay in Sydney. But gather tat driving in the city is not advisable cos of the traffic and parking is expensive (troublesome too)
So now, my alternatives is to spend 2-3 days exploring the city area by taking public transport. And rent a car on the 4th day (for 2-3 days) to explore the rest of Syndey (eg. bondi, manly beach, Blue mountain, hunter valley, ect...)
My hubby is actually not very keen to travel with my 18mth old gal to Sydney....He thinks that we shd bring her for our travelling trips when she is older. So he prefer tat the 2 of us went alone to Krabi, Phuket or some beach resort to relax for 3-4 days. Cos my mil can only help to take care of my daughter for 2-3N due to health reason. But I am more adventerous...like travelling alot and I like to self plan... I plan our honeymoon trip to NZ 2 yrs back. At first he was quite hesitant too bcos of the driving and other issues. He feels stress cos he like well planned things. But I find that travelling is alll abt free & easy and ENJOY! But we enjoy ourselves tremendously and we never regret going!
Unfortunately cannot do it often before giving birth due to $$$ issue...(cos travelling is expensive). And haiz....before I koe it, I have given birth... But I do not wan to be deterred by the fact tat I have a baby girl. I want to bring her along and enjoy ourselves as a family!
So can anybody who has stayed in Sydney before or travel to Sydney with young children/toddler before kindly provide some advice regarding any issues, from accomodation, travelling, visting sites so that I can plan my trip and assure my hubby that we will have a great trip to Sydney.
Many thanks to any who can help!
