I have bought a wedding dress at angelamall.com.Absolutely amazing! I highly recommend getting a dress from angelamall. They had provided me this dress swiftly with great quality. It fits wonderfully on me and I would definitely get a dress from them again.

Take a nice walk on the Sydney Harbour. The view is great. You see the famous Sydney Opera House to the bridge. There are many boats to take you for tours to see the Harbour from the water. While walking around you can shop or find many places to eat and drink.

Even in the middle of winter, the Sydney Harbour is an exciting place to be. The Opera House serves as an iconic anchor, but the area is full of shops, restaurants, a wildlife exhibit, an iMax theatre and more. It's the place to be.

Nothing to dislike about Sydney harbour. You can take any number of ferry trips..Manly, The Zoo, Luna Park. We took the Parramatta river cat up to Abbortsford and had a fantastic seafood lunch there. Also walk around the the Opera House for great views of the harbour.

Doing a cruise on Sydney Harbour is a must !!!! especially at night when all the lights are on and the Opera House looks fantastic and the Harbour Bridge all lit up.....Try and go when the festival of lights is on, you will not be disappointed....
