2/10 WOULD NOT VISIT.

Bondi Beach

“After coming here we all ended up with sand all over us and soaked to the bone after going into the sea. The kids all got sunburnt as well, three days later and their skin still hasn’t stopped peeling. Awful quality, we will not be going back here!”

Sydney Opera House

“It’s a pretty awful 1960s style concrete building. It’s really nothing special at all. Save yourself the effort and view it from the bridge or harbour – the further away you are the less awful it looks.”

Jenolan Caves

“Old hat. Needs to bring it up to modern day expectations. Nothing has changed at the caves in 100 years. People want to be entertained.”

Daintree Rainforest

“The place is ‘tired’ and lacking a lot of much needed maintenance. To be honest I enjoyed the Mossman Gorge more than the Daintree.”

Sydney Harbour Bridge

“Ugly, poor on function, dominant position… all round yuck! They could use their economic strength to put up a beautiful bridge such as the many in France.”

Parliament House

“Big empty shed. A great cost to build, maintain, just so a few overpaid pollies can feel grand.”

Uluru

“As an Aussie living abroad, Uluru really does shape up Australia. Overrated, disappointing and overpriced. It’s a rock in a flat desert covered with flies. The obsession is beyond me.”

Port Arthur

“Would have been more enjoyable if more buildings had been restored so you could experience what it was like for the prisoners.”

Shark Bay

“The dolphin feeding was very contrived and the most exciting thing we saw was an emu stealing a scone from someone in the cafe.”

Twelve Apostles

“For a few rocky stacks in the middle of a beach it’s honestly not worth bothering with, unless of course you’re a hardcore geologist or don’t mind hoards of tourists cramming your viewfinder, overpriced ice creams and general mediocracy. At least there’s no visitor fee and there are toilets.”

Wave Rock

“Stupid place! Sucky formation of rocks. Last time we went there it was I pissed my pants (sic). Despite the rain, the place still looks stupid. We managed to climb the rock and the scenery from up there is really terrible. It is a really bad place!”
