Oh and definitely St Mary's Cathedral, Hyde Park and the fountain there, though I'm sure you'll get to that during your hop on hop off bus trip.

Thanks ... I know one day is short for any big city, but realistically, what do you think I should see in Sydney in one day ... I'm prepared to slog it out the whole day (reach Sydney before 9.00am and leave around 11.00 pm) ... my current plan is to get on the hop-on hop-off bus tour and go through the entire city (I'm assuming, that'll take 2 to 3 hours) during that ride, I can mark the places I want to visit for the rest of the day/evening. I learned this tip in Edinburgh (Scotland) several years ago.

In the morning if you're keen for a walk I'd suggest heading out to do the Bondi to Coogee walk, that'll take a couple of hours, have a bite then off you go again.
Do your city sight seeing for a couple of hours, then head to circular quay, catch the ferry to Manly, and have some lunch there.
And in the evening head down to Darling Harbor for dinner, try to go to Sydney on a Saturday, as sometimes at Darling Harbor they have little events on, fireworks, giant balloon things, street performers, etc.
Don't bother going to check out the Casino, not great imo.

Totally agree, you get to meet some lovely people that own those houses sometimes, one lady even gave us daily home made peanut butter cookies and her husband offered to shuck our oysters and gave us recommendations on places to go.. Though unfortunately I can't remember that place we stayed at but have a look at cause that's where I usually book through anyway.
Also camera gear in Australia is expensive, I'd suggest buying your remote before you come..

Prices aren't too bad, a bit more than what I usually pay (about $250 per night), though the places I stay at are usuall owned by people who just rent it out as a holiday house, which is cheaper, and they give all the amenities, linen, towels etc as usual, plus they have a kitchen and fridge, microwave, oven, etc so you can cook also if you wish, I like to cook breakky so I can eat in my pyjamas.
Look up the surrounding areas, especially St. Helens, that's where I usually stay and it's literally 2 minutes drive to Binalong beach.
Oh did I mention you'll get to see a heap of native Australian animals, but watch out for the road kill.
Even at the bushy camping ground near the beach there's be wallabies jumping around and wombats.
Also Spirit of Tasmania will drop you guys off at devonport which is about an hour from launceston (one of the major cities in Tas), spend a night there, visit cataract gorge (Google it also), go for a swim at the pools at the gorge, go for a walk around the gorge and find free roaming peacocks..
Tasmania is an awesome place and I'm going back in January!

If you have a couple of days spare, look into going to Tasmania, especially bay of fires aka Binnalong bay (Google it), you can take the car ferry (spirit of Tasmania) and drive down from Melbourne then drive around Tasmania.
Nice scenery there, amazing seafood, gorgeous beaches, fresh locally produced food and cheaper than Sydney.
You can even camp at the Binnalong bay, and have a nice romantic time under the stars, watching the sunset and then sunrise the next morning whilst you stroll on the fine soft white sand and amazing blue waters.

Software & Accessories / Re: Tripod for someone who's never used one?

3LTs are pretty good, I like them much more than the Manfrottos that I've had.
You can also get them as a kit, with the ballhead (which is of great quality), and a release plate that's compatible with black rapids, they also come with a nice carry bag, not just a cheapy one, and some tools.
They're also detachable monopods for you to use for video.

I've had one for over a year now, used with my 5d mkiii and haven't had any problems with it, I like it a lot actually! Especially for the price, and the 3LTs are superb quality and reliable, and they look awesome, :P
If it's your first tripod I suggest looking at getting one of them, you won't have to look at all the million types of ballheads, release plates, what's compatible with what, or spend a heap on a really expensive one.
