That one time we met Obama!

Star Struck! 

Have you ever been star struck?  I have met a couple really cool people in my lifetime but my favourite experience was that one time Barack Obama let us use his office phone!!

Okay! It didn’t really happen like that!  But it was summer 2016 and we were in Sydney with Lulu for the National Athletics Championships.  If you haven’t read our introduction or about page click on the links to read more, but just to catch you up.

Our oldest daughter competes nationally in track & field for Queensland.  This particular year was in Sydney!

During our spare time when she wasn’t competing we were doing the tourist thing and checking out all the sites and somewhere really cool we recommend you visiting when you are in Sydney is:

Madame Tussauds  – the Wax Museum! OMG..SO much fun!

Snap a sneaky selfie with the Royal family or capture yourself hurdling beside Sally Pearson in the very heart of Sydney.  Or maybe you can save the world and be awestruck rubbing shoulders with your favourite Marvel superhero. Whoever it may be, there is something for everybody.  Including the ultimate tear jerker from the 90’s favourite, E.T.

Am I the only one that still cries when watching E.T?

We had so much fun interacting with some of the most favoutite icons of the film & TV world and we can GUARANTEE, you will too.

Madame Tussauds, Sydney is located perfectly in the Darling Harbour on the Aquarium Wharf.  Right beside SEAlife Sydney and WILDlife Zoo.

We recommend you plan a full day or 2 minimum in the Darling Harbour because there is plenty to see, do & learn.  Be sure to take some time to discover the history of the area over lunch while admiring the Pyrmont Bridge.
