Subject: Bushfires in Australia
Jonathan Would suggest you leave Sydney till the end of your visit. Air is thick with smoke in the centre of the city, so even if you didn't intend to visit the Blue Mountains, it could be more pleasant in a couple of weeks time. If you only wanted to spend time around the city, harbour and surf beaches, and changing your itinerary will mean missing the tennis or less time in Sydney later, then you may as well stick with your original itinerary. Sydney is a vast city (80 km from North to south) and stretching inland 50ks or so to the Blue Mountains, so there is plenty to see and do without venturing anywhere near the fires. Cheers Gavin
