Day 4th – last day (Sunday)
As you may know, the transportation fare in Sydney is expensive. However, on Sunday you can get a very good deal with only 2.50$ for all the places.
For that reason, we decided to go to Manly Beach from Circular Quay by ferry. Normally, it will cost you nearly 6$ one way for the ferry riding.
Go to the front of the ferry so you can take many beautiful pictures ￼￼:)
It took us 30 minutes to reach Manly beach ( haha now I know the reason for this funny name).
The beach is very amazing with high waves and many surfers who are very MANLY!!!
6 packs and fit body men are everywhere!!!
There are also some local markets where you can check out. At 11:30, we went back to Circular Quay to have lunch at “The pancakes on the rock” – 5 to 10 minutes walking from the Circular Quay.
Here is my friend wearing a super giant hat selling there
I came to the restaurant and needed to queue around 5 minutes. However, normally you might be expected to wait for more since the restaurant is very famous! ￼￼
We shared one of the recommended pancakes here, which is the “Devil Delight Berry Pancakes” – 13,50$. However, you can choose anything on the menu according to your preferences. The price varies from 10 to 30$ but the portion is kinda large for Asian girls like us by the way.
Review for the pancakes:
After around one hour having lunch there, we went back to Circular Quay and took the bus to Coogee Beach, where we walked from Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach.
We started the walk at Coogee from 2:45 pm and we reach North Bondi at 6 pm roughly.
When we reach Bondi, we sat on the bench and waited for the sunset time then came back to city central
