Day 24: Sydney Scavenger Hunt

G’day Mates!

We started out our first full day in Sydney with a photo scavenger hunt through the city! We divided into 4 teams and had a little friendly competition. The hunt brought us to:
-the world’s most expensive opal ($2.5 million)
-2 kangaroos (Nate and Des)
-the beautiful Botanical Gardens
-The Sydney Sealife Aquarium
And so much more!

Our adventures ended at the Sydney Opera House where group 1 (Kit, Cary, Lindsey, Jenna, Tatum, Nadia) was awarded the win by a 110 point margin. During the hunt, we were not only exposed to many of Sydney’s attractions but also to some of their sustainable practices. For example, many of the trees in the city are covered with semi-permeable membranes that help water the tree and hold water for the future. It also acts as a filtration system!

After, we headed to the Australian Hotel (http://australianheritagehotel.com) for some exotic pizza topped with Emu, Kangaroo, and Crocadile!

To end the day, we celebrated Brooke’s 20th birthday at the Scubar! It was the perfect occasion to bring the whole group together for our “last hoorah” on this trip!
