I found an easier way to get to Hyde Park and the city center. Taking a left out of the hotel and going up Macleay Street then a right on Williams Street. This takes you right to the west side of Hyde Park. William Street has a big down hill but no where close the hill on Monday. I left early on Tuesday knowing it was going to be packed because of New Years. I hung out in Hyde Park for about 2 hours and relaxed. After getting dinner at Bar333, the restaurant was accessible but the bathrooms were downstairs. I made it to Circular Quay about 7:45pm and it was a madhouse. Estimated 2 million people on the waterfront to watch the fireworks. At 9pm they had a 7 minute fireworks show for the families. The BIG Sydney fireworks were a disappointment. Not only was it pack, which I expected, the fireworks only lasted 12 minutes. I’m not a big fireworks person but I was expecting this to blow me away and it fell short.
