Chinese Garden of Friendship, Darling Harbour

I hate February in Sydney. There – I said it. Even though February is the shortest month of the year, it’s the hardest one to find anything good to say about it. Except perhaps that March comes next – and that’s one of… Read More

The Sydney Quiz…

I was flicking through old blog posts the other day looking for inspiration and found this one I’d originally written after Angela Savage posted a (melbourne) quiz on her blog. It was a sort of a homage to the quiz that appeared… Read More

Friday Five: Cockatoo Island

It was one of those days…the ones that Sydney does particularly well. The ones when the sun was shining, the sky was blue, the harbour was glistening in a way that could have you thinking that someone up there had scattered a… Read More

Collaroy Beach…

So anyways, I’m in the process of weaning myself back to a 4 day partition week. Of late, I’ve having more success with this, but still feel humungously guilty- and a little as if I’m skiving off. Surely, I should be spending… Read More

Watsons Bay to North Bondi Coastal Walk…

I’ve told you before about the Coogee to Bondi coastal walk (or vice versa)…what I haven’t told you is that the track extends further north…to Watsons Bay…and further south. Yesterday I did the northern leg- from Watsons Bay to Bondi. This part… Read More

the (sydney) quiz…

Angela Savage* posted a (melbourne) quiz on her blog over the weekend- sort of a homage to the quiz that appeared in the glossy mag that used to appear monthly in The Age. A (sydney) version used to appear in the Sydney… Read More

St Albans…

On a clear day you can see forever- well, at least as far as the Blue Mountains…which today, as a result of the clear skies and wind, are as blue as blue can be. Some days dawn so clear and blue that… Read More
