    • We have so many more photos, made it quite hard to pick which ones to use for the post! The Merlin annual pass is great value, especially with some of the other attractions, and even better if you have kids as you can keep coming back! Although, agreed that the vouchers might be a good alternative if you’re in Sydney for a short amount of time.
