A: So, there is a great walking toward tomorrow morning. For tomorrow night we could go on the cruise around Harbor. What do you think, John?
B: Well we’ve got to theater tickets for tonight, so will be too tired for the walking tour in the morning. But I don’t fancy the cruise either.
A: Why not? It’ll be fun! Look, is the dinner cruise, and it’s only $12 each.
B: I hate the sea, and I’ll be sick with fear if the waves are big! And dinner… on a boat… I just couldn’t.
A: But we’ll be in harbor!
B: Still… Ah, but what about this? There’s a bus tour tomorrow evening. It’s only 5.50 dollars and it goes all around the main tourist sites!
B: Yeah, That sounds okay …
A Thank you for contacting Sun Wave Tours. How may I help you?
B Hi. My name is Alex. I’m here in Melbourne for work until this Saturday, and I want to go on the City tour that I saw advertised in your flyer. I’m available on either Wednesday or Thursday .
A We can certainly accommodate that. What in our city are you interested in seeing?
B Well, I am curious about both historical sites and contemporary culture. But I’m also interested in old architecture. So, I do want to tour some art galleries more than anything. I heard that there is a national art gallery in the city.
A Yes, there is. I actually recommend our top spot tour. It starts just in front of our office on Elizabeth Street and conclude at the national Gallery of Victoria. And there are a lot of places to get lunch in that area afterward.
Thank you. As many of you are already aware, the Brighton sports complex will be the largest athletic stadium our city has ever seen, serving primarily as the venue for national tennis matches. I am speaking today on behalf of the entire committee that helps get the projects started. I’m happy to say to all the City council members here with us today that we stayed well under our budget. The project was also finished by our completion deadline and will open as scheduled. Many of the council members already Toured the facility and were very impressed with what they saw.
I guess now is a good time to talk about the various sports facilities that are housed in the complex. Not only does the complex house 22 tennis courts, but it also has two full-size basketball courts. One will be indoors and available to use year-round. Furthermore, it will be used for games played among regional and national teams. The complex also has a volleyball court, an indoor football field, a weight room and an Olympic size swimming pool. We are incredibly excited to welcome the citizens of Brighton to use these facilities. And soon, we will have more details about our plans for a yoga studio.
We’ll be going on a 6-mile hike and the terrain will be pretty uneven. So, you really must have some really strong footwear, like a good pair of boots.
There will be a plenty of photo opportunities on this trip, so I know many of you will want to take a camera, but I’m afraid it is prohibited.
I also see that many of you have your binoculars with you. However, I must explain that the forest will be pretty dense where’re we going so you may not have many opportunities to use them.
On our trip, it will be quite shaded, you don’t need to worry about sunscreen.
Mosquito repellent on the other hand is often useful but not at this time of year.
We’ll be walking for a few hours so you might want to bring refreshments with you. Once you enter the park, there’s no where to buy anything so definitely that’s a must.
Now if I were you, I’d take a good size rucksack with you as you may want to bring a change of clothing with you as well as other personal items.
I know many people recommend to take local currency with you on the trip, but the souvenir shop which is outside the park, does take credit cards, as well as dollars and euros. So, I leave that decision entirely up to you.
A: Can I also ask you about the museum in the main square? I was reading about it in my guide book and was shocked to see that the entrance price is £10. Why does it cost so much?
B: Well, the museum has the largest collection of Latin American art in Europe. People come from all over the world to see it. But that's not the reason why it's so expensive to get in. You see, the building is very old and it needs repairs. The £10 ticket cost will go towards repairing the roof and the walls.
A: I see. Well, I suppose it's worth paying £10 to see the collection.
B: Yes, I think so too. Is there anything else I can help you with?
A: Actually, there is. I was wondering if you knew of any good restaurants in the area.
B: Well, there are a few restaurants near the harbour, and a couple on the beach which are nice. The problem is that the smell of the fish market is quite strong down there.
A: Mm, I don't think my girlfriend would be very pleased.
B: I know what you mean - it's not very romantic, is it? My advice would be to go to the next town. It’s bigger, and the restaurant selection is wider. You can get there by taxi and it only takes about ten minutes. The town is quite picturesque ... Is it for a special occasion?
A Yes, it's my girlfriend's birthday so I'd like to go somewhere special. Um, do you know any of these restaurants well enough to tell me about them?
Thank you for coming along to the Cultural Sydney talk. I'm going to start by telling you about the Yellow Plaque scheme, which has been running in Sydney for over forty years and has been incredibly successful. When you are walking around the city, you’ll see some buildings with a small round yellow plaque on them. If you take a closer look, you'll see the name and details of a famous person who lived in that very place. We have, at present, 130 plaques up in the city. The scheme has been great for tourism, but it was really started to raise awareness of the rich history of Sydney, both locally and nationally, and we think we've managed to do this. We also wanted to make people aware of the impressive list of important people who have lived in this city, and we've certainly achieved that. But that’s not all. Although not part of our original aims, the scheme has also helped preserve some of the older and more important buildings in Sydney because people now know that these buildings are a link to our past; some of the buildings are actually over 180 years old, which, for Australia, is ancient! We actually think that this is where the scheme has achieved the most success; in raising the profile of our rich history. Of course, it has helped tourism, but not only that, locals also walk around looking at the plaques. It has been really wonderful in highlighting our past. Some people are quite surprised to see who has lived here; take Errol Flynn for example. He was married in Sydney.
We are planning on putting more plaques up and a common question is how can people nominate a figure to be put on a plaque. It's quite a simple process. Applications can be downloaded from our website. If you want to nominate someone for a plague you just need the person's name, where they lived and you need three signatures to approve vour application. Our panel then checks that all the data you've submitted is correct and hopefully, within a year a new plaque will be erected. But you can't nominate just anyone! A plague can only be given to a person who is famous and has achieved something out of the ordinary, like an important politician or world-record breaking sportsman, for example. We aim to have fifty new plaques up within the next three years, and we have plenty of
funding to do so. Our funding comes from three sources: the local council, community donations and the tourist board. Whereas in the past the tourist board put in the majority of funding, now public donations count for sixty-five per cent of all total funds! In fact, our funding is so healthy now; there are plans to expand the scheme.
