Addition: in Katoomba, Lurline House was one of the best B&Bs I've ever enjoyed. Absolutely everything was perfect including being met at the arriving taxi and my bags whisked away to a lovely Victorian style room (which would qualify as exceptionally romantic if I had not been alone), an excellent custom cooked breakfast (aka brekkie down there) and great hosts.

NoFlyZone - don't you have more to tell? You know, never mind hotels and points and interiors of rooms and first-class cabins on planes. After all, a bed is a bed is a bed for many travelers, that's not what many of us care too much about when abroad - it's the rest that counts: Sights, sceneries, encounters with people, new ways of doing things differently, smells, tastes - don't you have anything like that to report?

Did you go on the Sydney harbour in a boat or on a ferry, did you go up on the bridge pylon to see the 360 views, did you enjoy the Australian Museum, the walk from Woolloomoolloo to Mrs MacQuarie's Chair and the Opera House, what did you enjoy about Katoomba other than the lodgings, what local fish and wines did you try other than a sausage in the bush? Did you do none of that, nothing that would warrant a mention?

Maybe if Uluru - to you - "is way overrated on the international scale" then everything else doesn't count, either? I mean, there is nothing like Uluru anywhere in the world, so to what are you comparing it? To each his own I guess.

Have to agree with the comment re Uluru. IMO it is a very special place as is the surrounding area. Sacred to the indigenous people and it is easy to see why. Overrated? I don't think so.
