The land down under

We took a ferry boat ride around Darling Harbor on our first evening in Sydney.

Statue of Captain Cook. He was the first to discover Sydney in 1770.

Hyde Park, similar to New York's Central Park.

Russell Crowe's waterfront home at Woolloomooloo Bay.
(Actually he occupies only the 2nd story)
The average middle class home in Sydney costs $500,000.
Imagine what this waterfront property must be worth!
