On the fourth and last weekend in Sydney, the schedule was not so tight as I had pretty much done the most important attractions already. It also was very hot during the week and on Saturday, so I first slept in and then started a walking tour directly from the hotel towards east, along Elizabeth Bay, Darling Point, Point Piper up to Rose Bay. From there I took the ferry back to the city. In the evening, I went to the Bicentennial Park west of Sydney centre near the Anzac bridge to see an open air Romeo and Juliet performance as part of the Sydney Shakespeare festival.
On Sunday I went to the Art Gallery of New South Wales that hosts a special exhibition about China’s first emperor with a few entombed terrakotta warriors as its highlight. The exhibition was not very big and very crowded due to the special promotions during the current Chinese New Year period, but nonetheless quite fascinating; unfortunately photographs were not allowed. I also checked the normal exhibitions in the gallery with a broad set of aboriginal, asian, european and australian art both historical and contemporary.
