In continuation from: Scuba Dive on The Great Barrier Reef and Townsville
1. Its a beautiful city and we are going to really enjoy our time here.
2. Its one of the costliest cities in the world.
The 2nd point was put in our face even before we reached our hostel in Sydney. We took a taxi for the 8.7 km ride to the hostel in City Centre from the airport and ended up paying AUD 60 for that. This makes it almost INR300 per kilometer. Hence, we decided to avoid travelling in taxis in Sydney.

Overall I was pretty satisfied with the professionalism of Skydive the beach-Wollongong but I thought they could have probably given us more time to para-glide before landing. It seemed as if they were in a hurry to reach down and take the next batch of jumpers. Also, while the skydive costed 200AUD, the video was charged another 200AUD. Considering the rate for the video, I expected another diver to dive along to make the video. But they had just a GoPro tied on the wrist of the instructor resulting in an average video. The dive school provided us a free drop to Sydney CBD after the jump which was spent sleeping by most of us. :-)
