    I'm heading to Sydney next month. Looks like quite a place for pinball!

    I was there a few years back and there was a shop called pinballs r us. Was a 30min drive but they had a nice collection of games

    A quick google suggests it's now closed down!

    Going to be in Sydney after Kiwi Pinfest for a little bit - any other good locations or tournaments going on around then (March 13-17?)

    definitely go to the 15+ collection at Coogee, and have regular comps

    as Luna Park just near the Sydney Harbour Bridge has alot of classics (EM's woodrails) - tip - if not interested in the rides and just the pinball just pay for entry into the Coney Island (think it is around $12) and then you have to pay for playing each game about $1 but about 20 games including some other vintage arcade games. You can get there via ferry from different parts of the harbour - Circular Quay (Opera House and few other cool spots), Darling Harbour (Shops), Star City (Casino) which are all tourist stops

    Sadly Pinball HQ will be shutting down shortly.

    The best venues for pinball in Sydney are:

    The Lord Raglan Hotel: https://goo.gl/maps/huoqECCnkEE2
    The Courthouse Hotel: https://goo.gl/maps/5shPd3kid8z
    The Annandale Hotel: https://goo.gl/maps/wX8wyiztryr
    The Henson Hotel: https://goo.gl/maps/yUckFWydWLA2

    We like our pinball and beer here in Sydney...

    I will also be at Pincade in NZ so I'm sure we will catch up there and can chat about pinball in Sydney.

    Thanks for the tips! I'm willing to run a tournament while I am out there if the timing works out (unless there's already a weekly/monthly happening around March 12/13-16 - dates aren't set yet...)
