On Tuesday 27 February we had some great activities planned for us. Our first stop was lunch at the Australian Heritage Hotel. I must admit, the name didn't ring a bell at first but it turned out to be the oldest pub in Sydney! It's not just the oldest pub in town but the Australian Heritage Hotel is also known for its typical Australian cuisine. Upon arrival we could immediately tell the charm the pub had. They have a wide range of great Australian beers and offer different types of Australian food. We ordered a couple of different pizzas to share with each other. We had some pizzas with emu, kangaroo, crocodile, duck… you name it.  The pub also has quite a few options for vegetarians, vegans or for people who aren't ready to try the Australian wildlife yet![/vc_column_text]


With our bellies full, we took a short walk to the location of our next activity being the Pylon lookout. When we arrived, we started off with a video that showed us how the Harbour Bridge was made (a bit of a history lesson really puts things in perspective). After that, we climbed the 200 stairs to get to the top where our guide told us other stories about the bridge.

The view at the Pylon lookout was literally amazing (Such an amazing spot to see the city from). It’s one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen. You have a great view of Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera house. It really gives you the chance to take some great photos and enjoy the amazing harbour city from high above.

The Pylon lookout also has a museum where you can see a collection of displays and objects such as pictures from the early days of the bridge to the pair of scissors that were used for the opening of the Harbour Bridge.

I would definitely recommend doing this if you would like to have an view of Sydney Harbour and it’s surroundings and if you’re a real history buff!
