My experience at the Aquarium is similar to Robert's. If you are not familiar with Sidney I would also add in some beach time after the aquarium, a trip to the fish market on the short pier and a walk out on the larger pier... More
My experience at the Aquarium is similar to Robert's. If you are not familiar with Sidney I would also add in some beach time after the aquarium, a trip to the fish market on the short pier and a walk out on the larger pier where they fish for crab. Glass beach is at the foot of Beacon and nice to beachcomb. A nicer beach is off Amherst and 3rd. Lovely at low tide. There are lots of coffee shops and ice cream near the pier. Enjoy your day!
