Sydney Triathlon, Sydney, Australia - 16th April 2000

[New scans, Jan 2020] It's getting towards the end of a two week stay in Sydney. Down between Bennelong Point and the Botanical Gardens the Triathlon World Cup is going on - an event which counts towards qualification for the up-coming Olympic games. Before that though, there's a night hanging around Circular Quay and The Rocks, a trip to Bondi beach - nice sand but otherwise just a beach - and a visit to the tallest building in Sydney, the unimaginatively-named Sydney Tower.
