Re: Star City Hotel & Casino

Recommended Posts

Corniglia and Olderpilot

Have been scouting around on the internet. Came up with quite a few tour companies, but haven't done anything about that yet. Just gathering information as it seems so far away at present to start doing anything definite.

Good idea regarding hiring the car, but I think Brian would appreciate being driven around - then he gets to see everything as well.

In any case, I will keep checking this board to see if anyone else comes up with anything and then start in again myself later in the year.

At present, am quite happy with how things are going (except for the initial cringe when I checked out air prices).

This must be the earliest we have ever started arranging a vacation/cruise - seems wierd, like I'm wishing time away.

Thanks guys.

If you have a spare time in Sydney,

just go down to Circurlar Quay

and jump on the ferry to Manly

This ferry leaves every 1/2 hour and it

will give you a fantastic view of Sydney harbour

plus lands you at an ideal destination

to experience Sydney lifestyle.........

Hi, Kiwi Cruiser.

You have already given me a bunch of info on travelling to Aus/NZ, so your input is most welcome. Yes, we will have time to do that - I think! We will be arriving early in the a.m. into Sydney and then stay three nights. Hopefully, we will have slept on the plane and can hang in all day to be so wiped out that we won't do anything but sleep all night. The adreline will be pumping so should be able to manage some leisurely sightseeing on the first day and your idea sounds ideal. Then, the second day could be an all-day tour to Blue Mountains. further than that, haven't given a thought. My next area of investigation is Auckland as we want to stay there a couple of days after the cruise is over.

I always feel more accomplished if I get the hotel settled first.

Thanks again.

The other great trip in Sydney,

that wont cost an arm or a leg,

is the the sightseeing bus from Circurlar Quay.

One bus ,

I think it is the Red Line.........

(come in Sydney siders to help me here)

goes round the City.....


the Blue or other line goes out to Bondi Beach

and is really exciting............

through the Eastern suburbs

stunning Harbour views,

Double Bay (Double Pay)....Doyles Fish Restaurant......

Bondi.......the real icon of Sydney.....

if you you want to experience real Sydney life

this is the trip to do.

You can hop on and off where you please...

I did it it in 1/2 a day,

but could have easily stretched it out to a full day.


No doubt folk from Sydney could come in here,

and give you more details.
