I am going to OSDC in Sydney

Monday, November 3rd, 2008 at 10:13 pm

This year the Open Source Developers’ Conference is being held in Sydney. Unlike last year, when it was in Brisbane, work is not sending me. So I decided I would go on my own.

Last week I registered for the conference (just before the extended early bird registrations closed) and this evening I booked my accomodation. I have yet to book the flights, and before I do that I need to work out exactly when I want to go.

I am flying up on the Tuesday before and flying home on the Saturday afterwards. On the Tuesday the cheapest flights are between 10AM and 3PM, and on the Saturday they are from 2PM onwards (I’m not getting up early for a 7AM flight home). There are plenty of options and what I am trying to work out is how much extra time do I want to spend in Sydney. Maybe catching up with people or doing touristy things.

So, does anyone have ideas for what I could do?

My mum suggested that a Bridge Climb could be a late birthday present. There is also the observation deck up Sydney Tower as well as just wandering around with my camera.

  1. Last time I was in Sydney, I wandered around for a whole day:

    • went up the top of Sydney tower. This is easily a couple of hours if you want to get some spectacular photos of the city, the harbour, the airport, and all sorts of other stuff
    • went to the Maritime Museum. They have a 60’s era destroyer and a diesel submarine there which are really fascinating
    • would have gone to the Zoo, if I could have afforded it. Taronga Zoo is really awesome, and definitely worth the visit.
