Jazz and Darling Harbour

The Darling harbour, must be the most happening place at Sydney. On a Sunday afternoon we were here on the Cockles Wharf bay - A place with many restaurant with some Indian too and  were lucky to catch the performance of Jazz on the stage with  the darling harbor in the back ground.

The festivities got even more wonderful, when the crowd joined the beautiful dancer to do their own Jazz steps. Alas ! I was not among them!

If in Australia and you do not get to see a mob (also troop, court) as group  of kangaroos are called, then whats the fun. Got to see a mob in Canberra in wild and what joy it was to observe the animal regarded as the national symbol. Some interesting facts: male Kangaroos are called bucks, boomers, jacks, or old men and females are does, flyers or jills and young ones are joeys.

Kangaroos have powerful hind legs, large feet and a long muscular tail for balance with a small head. female Kangaroos have a pouch called marsupium in which joeys complete postnatal development..

Kangaroos has been a source of food for indigenous Australians being high on protein and low in fat.

Opera House Sydney

Easily the most photographed monument alongside Taj Mahal, The Eiffile Tower, The Statue of Liberty etc.,  The Opera house stand out on the coast line of Sydney. A world Heritage site, designed by the Danish Arictect Jorn Utzon, as a performing arts center, the centre was opened in 1970.

View is from across the bank

A close view in the evening. Its probably the most happening place this time, given the proximity to the harbour and eateries alongside with multiple programs inside,

In the evening when one crosses over in the launch.
