Rail & Sail - Day 3

A knock at the door at 6.30 am and we opened the door to our Steward with a nice hot cuppa before we were even out of bed. Then it was time to get out of bed and have a shower in our little ensuite but surprisingly there was plenty of room. It was very refreshing after a nights sleep on the train, the water was nice and hot. And surprisingly most other people slept well too!

It was time to front up for food again, and we were not disappointed, a beautiful cooked breakfast with all the trimmings. We came into Sydney through the Blue Mountains on a beautiful sunny day, arriving at Sydney Central Railway Station at 11.30 am.

Our hotel for the next three nights was just across the road so it was a sight to see 43 people all walking across George Street in the heart of Sydney with their suitcases! It would have made a good photo! Arriving at our hotel we were very surprised to find most of our rooms ready and a few not far away. By the time we went and had some lunch they were all done.

Most people had a rest for a couple of hours before we headed off to the Kings Wharf. We all met downstairs to walk to the wharf which turned out to be quite a long walk as our normal route was blocked by all the construction that was going on in this area. To top it off the boat was leaving from a different spot so we had to walk even further, (sorry guys)! We were headed for our sunset cruise with a three course dinner. The meal and the service was great, as well as seeing all the city lights of Sydney, seeing icons such as the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Luna Park and much more.

At the completion of the cruise we were dropped back to Darling Harbour, some people chose to walk back while others decided they had walked far enough and got cabs back to the hotel. I took the walkers back through China Town which was interesting, more Chinese restaurants than you’ve ever seen. Time for bed after a busy but good day.
