|Subject: Re: going to OZ|
You should have a great time in oz. Unfortunately you will not be near Kangaroo Island as it is off the coast of South Australia near Adelaide.
There are a few good markets in Sydney which you will find out as soon as you get to sydney. The ads are everywhere. Getting around in sydney is easy and the manly ferry trip should be a must. For info on sydney buses and ferries you can check out http://www.sydneyferries.nsw.gov.au and for trains http://www.cityrail.nsw.gov.au
As a few others have mentioned I think the blue mountains (just west of Sydney and 15 minutes from where i live) are a must. You can check out http://www.bluemts.com.au/BMTL/default.htm for more information.
If you are a connoisseur of wine you may also want to do a day trip to The Hunter Valley. It's about 2 hours north of Sydney.
If you need any further info just let me know.
