|Madame Tussauds Sydney|
We thought we are heading to some observatory to see some faraway stars, little did we know we could catch them at Darling Harbour instead.
Daddy was excited about the next attraction we were to visit. He had always wanted to get up close with Superstars but had limited opportunities to do so. During our holiday in Sydney, we decided to fulfil his dreams by visiting Madame Tussads Sydney.
Mdm Tussads is originally from London and founded by Marie Tussad, a skilled wax modeller in the 1800s. Since then it had set branches worldwide and Sydney has one of them
Upon entry, we were greeted by historical figures . The first wax person we bump into was Captain Cook. I learned that he was one of the early explorer of modern Australia.

The wax figures were pretty impressive and look like their counterparts. I guess that is why Mdm Tussads is a must visit attraction for those wishing to get close to the stars.

That probably explained why Daddy took the seat at the White House, posing beside a gleaming President Obama.
|Hi Mr President!|
Next up is the sports arena. Aussie sports fans would love the sports stars on display.
We decided to give Aussie sports like Crickets and golf a try.
Beside Michael and Justin, there are Aussie stars like Kylie Minogue and Michael Hutchene of INXS.
We were more engrossed in rocking out than to be starry eyes.

Mommy was screaming behind some shower curtains. We wonder why...

It was an enjoyable trip full of photo opportunities aplenty with the stars. This is probably the only place in town where you can see so many stars at one place and to be able to take a photo with them.
If you are a tv/movie or political fan, you should not miss Mdm Tussads. We recommend getting combo tickets to nearby attractions such as Sydney Sealife Aquarium and Sydney Wild-life zoo to complete the Darling Harbour trio of attractions.
