The "Wicked Waterfront" tour of Sydney was as good as I had been promised. We visited the site of the first shipyard in Sydney, the gallows, the men's prison, various murder sites, a great view of the Opera House (involved in the first kidnapping in Australia) and the top of the lane above Pier 5, where plague first came to Sydney, the Hero of Waterloo and the Garrison Church. Judith was an inspired story teller, and clearly loved what she does (it always shows).
