LG Sydney Series: Blue Mountains

Australia, Wildlife & Animals — By on October 20, 2009 at 10:16 am

Sydney was our last stop on our round-the-world trip, and we have plenty of amazing memories from living “Down Under.” Now ’til the end of October, we’re going to be recalling our favorite Sydney moments. At the end of each post, you’ll find out how to get the chance to make your own memories in Oz by entering to win a trip to Sydney.


On the plane ride from New Zealand to Sydney, we met a local firefighter named Adam, and he offered to be our tour guide. He agreed to meet us on our way to the hazy Blue Mountains (just 90 minutes outside of Sydney), and said they were home to a certain furry marsupial we’ve dreamed of seeing since we were kids watching Captain Kangaroo on TV. So we hopped in the van and hit highway N4 in hope of a wildlife encounter. Here’s a clip of some of the critters we spotted on our roadtrip through Australia more than two years ago during our around-the-world trip.
