Yes, we've now arrived at Sydney Tower having come here the 2nd time for our Sydney OzTrek Ride (included in our previously purchased Sydney Tower Admission Tickets!!) – seated inside a Motion Theatre facing 6m high 180 degrees Cinema screens with special effects & sensational surround sounds that brings us on a 15min journey across Australia's landscapes, history & terrain exploring its national treasures – soaring above Sydney Harbour Bridge & Sydney Opera House
Arriving at Sydney Darling Harbour now……………………………
Dear's standing on the World's oldest surviving electrically operated Swingspan Bridge – Pyrmont Bridge here in Sydney Darling Harbour :
Replacing the 1st Pyrmont Bridge that began operating in 1857, the current Swingspan Bridge opened in 1902 at Darling Harbour, which was Sydney's industrial heart & served as the Gateway to a bustling Hub of warehouses, railway yards & international shipping. This Swingspan allows access for vessels that are too tall to travel under the bridge.
Well, our plan's actually to walk from Darling Harbour straight on to Star City Casino - located in Pyrmont – overlooking Darling Harbour – the 2nd largest Casino in Australia, next to Mebourne's Crown Casino.
And here we are arriving at Star City Casino after a pretty long but very enjoyable scenic walk from Sydney Tower :
Well, Dear & I visited the Star City Casino's 2 gaming Floors before settling into the following Traffic CD Play Arcade where Dear has loads of fun in his shooting Game :

It's time now waiting for the Sydney Metro Light Rail back to our Hotel :
We're now back at our Hotel – Pacific International Inn which used to be called The Great Southern Hotel located here at George Street – one of Sydney's most notable Streets :
We ordered our usual very delicious Vietnamese Special Beef Noodle (or "Pho Dac Biet" in Vietnamese) – this time a HUGE bowl for each of us, & mine with Beef Balls included And of course plus our favourite the so yummy Vietnamese Crispy Chicken (or "Hu Tieu" in Vietnamese) :
Our Vietnamese Supper is simply superb making Dear & I so delighted hahahhaaa – however this time we can't finish all our food – so we have it packed & taken away with us back to our Room in Pacific International Inn – the so delicious can't-part-with crispy on the outside yet so soft & tender & juicy in the inside Vietnamese Chicken (Hu Tieu), with the so fresh crunchy Aussie Tomato, Lettuce & Cucumbers
