Sidney and Auckland the best to see

We will be in Sidney in the beginning of Jan. 2005. Getting on a cruise ship from Sidney to Auckland.
We want to see the most and the best we can in 2-3 days.Any great restaurants also. Same goes for Auckland.

Sydney has a population of 5 Million plus. Auckland, 3 million plus. Plenty of good restaurants in both places.

Suggest you run a search on this forum to narrow down your choices and see what interests you. But please, get the spelling of Sydney right or you won't turn up much.

The entire population of NZ is barely 4 million and most are split amongst the main cities of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch..Somewhat eclipsed by its population of 60 million sheep.

I would have put the population of greater Sydney at more like 4 million, but I guess that's splitting hairs. John71Cove's point remains - there's a lot of restaurants, but what's "great" depends on the individual. Sharoo, if you have any particular preferences, let us know and I'm sure posters will come up with some good suggestions.

Personal preferences notwithstanding it would be hard to visit Sydney and not do the 'right hand' circuit from Circular Quay - ie. Opera House (stop off at the Box Office to see if there's anything on during yr visit that appeals); Botanic Gdns, Art Gallery of NSW; Hyde Park Barracks Museum, QVB (for the building and tea and cake!). 'Left hand' circuit - Rocks area and up to the SE Pylon of the Bridge for the display about how it was built and the view. Any and all ferry trips - to Manly is on top of most people's list. Going just for the ride to Darling Harbour and back (esp at sunset) or Mosman anytime (night as good as day) also.

Don't miss the War Memorial Museum in Auckland. And again - getting out on the water is recommended - Devonport if time is short; or Waiheke Island if you just want to wander.

I agree with previous messages which recommend you actually use the search facility on the board so you can narrow down the attractions of both Sydney and Auckland.
