Madame Tussauds Sydney

Craftsmumship interviewed by Oprah

Yep just opening up about my life with Oprah on her show. Nothing major! She wanted to know where my blog was going, what exciting projects I had planned for this year and how I actually coped looking after so many kids and animals every day.

The interview went well I think.

The Royal Family

For a bit of school holiday fun, if you haven’t already, why not visit Madame Tussauds which is now in Sydney. We had our first visit last year and it was such a fun day literally rubbing shoulders with royals, celebrities and world leaders. There is only a week to go for school holidays here in Australia and I just realised that I’d never shared our trip there so thought I’d do so in case anyone else was interested in going.

The wax figures really are so lifelike and the sets are amazing with some really fun photo opportunities using their props.

Audrey Hepburn at Madame Tussauds Sydney

One of my favourite actresses Audrey Hepburn and a true beauty inside and out. Such a fun little set up to pose next to her and have a cup of tea together.

ET and Spiderman

The kids enjoyed riding away with ET and they wanted to take a special Spiderman photo to take home and show their brother who didn’t come with us. We planned a long day which included a train trip from the Central Coast and finished with a walk across the Harbour Bridge and I didn’t think he’d be up to it. Meaning I’d have to carry him half the time and as it was I had to carry my little girl across the bridge when she got blisters from all the walking.

Katy Perry Madame Tussauds

Pop stars were popular with everyone from Katy Perry to Taylor Swift along with Kylie, Olivia Newton John and a bit of hip jiggling with the jaw droppingly handsome Ricky Martin.

Hotline to the president

Getting a presidential phone call in the oval office with Barrack Obama was fun too. Speaking of the President of USA have you seen his episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s “Commedians in Cars Getting Coffee”? Well worth a watch if you haven’t – link here.

Yao Ming Basketballer

This is Yao Ming the Chinese basketball player who is 2.29 metres or 7 foot 6 inches. Wow!

Sporting figures at Madam Tussauds

Had to have a picture with Lleyton Hewitt and then get ready for a dip in the pool.

ned kelly, julia gillard

Some amazing historical scenes and people like Ned Kelly with lots for the kids to learn and read. I’m sure it’s easier for them to remember having actually “met” these people now.

Oh and Julia Gillard and I chatted about knitting of course.

Marilyn Monroe Lorelei

I’ll leave you with a picture of one of my favourites Marilyn Monroe. Did you know her character name in the movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” was Lorelei! Well now you do.

    We loved Madam Tussauds in Las Vegas as well. I also got to have a chat with Oprah, haha.
    Mostly movie and music stars in Las Vegas. We didn’t get to meet the royal family or the President of USA. It brought back great memories reading your blog. Thanks 🙂

    • Lorelei

      Thanks for your lovely comments Lesley. I’d like to see your Oprah picture sometime!

    Looks like you had a great day! Madame Tussaud’s in Sydney is world’s apart from how I remember my trips to Baker Street when I was growing up in London. The Sydney Tussaud’s is such a fun day out. The models are amazingly life like and it’s so fun getting hands on and getting dressed up with the models. ET was my favourite although I did enjoy my stint in the Oval Office. There’s something for everyone here!
