Sydney CAN be a budget travel destination!
A Free Tour? Count Me In!
Class and Culture at New South Wales Gallery
On Wednesday night, the gallery stays open late and offers locals wines and beers. Their signature cocktail, containing gin, lemon, and elderflower, was delicious, potent, and at $10, half the price of a hotel bar. The night I attended, Toby Creswell gave an inspired talk about the origins of American rock and roll music to coincide with the gallery's America exhibit. The cost for the whole evening? Absolutely free! Or, in my case, two spectacular cocktails.
Friends and Families at Bronte and Balmoral
All Aboard the 555! A Bargain Bus Bonanza.
Laugh all you want! At a mere 30 cents for a small vanilla soft serve cone, this was absolutely the best culinary deal in down. Wandering in in search of free Wi-Fi, I automatically handed the clerk a $5 note when I placed my order, assuming that standard Sydney food prices were in effect here. Imagine my surprise when it only cost me 30 cents! Not exactly proud of this but I may have eaten 3 in a row.
