We had booked 3 weeks of accommodation on the internet so that we had somewhere to stay when we arrived. Being MDF’s first time to Australia, and my 2nd time to Sydney (5 days here,13 years ago), we weren’t that informed on where we were going. It turned out to be a suburb called Balmain. After the bank accounts were duly opened we set about exploring.

Our verdict – Balmain is a very nice place. Our apartment was pretty nice too, with a little balcony to sit out on. Balmain is a peninsula, so we went on a little walking tour, and even though it’s actually pretty central, we were amazed by how quiet it was. It turns out that after London, everywhere in Sydney is quiet!
