Centennial Park

Autumn walk

I’m not a big fan of city parks, especially the big ones. I much more prefer natural bush lands, forests and Sydney have a lot of those! Anyway, sometimes (very rarely) I like to sleep longer and as winter approaching days are getting shorter so Centennial Park  is a perfect place to wander around. From where I live it’s only 30 minutes walk trough charming street and lanes of Woollahra and Paddington suburbs.

Biennale of Sydney

19th Biennale of Sydney

19th Biennale of Sydney.

Since 1973, an international festival of contemporary art, held every 2nd year. It’s the biggest contemporary visual arts event in the country.
Cockatoo Island is the main venue with the largest number of exhibitions. Located in Sydney Harbour, only few minutes by ferry from Circular Quay. The place itself is very interesting – prior to European settlement island was most likely used by the  indigenous Australian as an fishing base. Between 1839 and 1869 it was a prison, 1870-1880 used for an Industrial School for Girls and a reformatory, since 1890 shipbuilding and repair activities expand, in 1900 become the Naval Dockyard of the Royal Australian Navy. In 2010 Cockatoo Island has been added to UNESCO World Heritage List.

Bundeena to Otford

Bundeena to Otford

Royal National Park. Established in 1879, the world’s second-oldest national park.
Located within an hour drive from Sydney CBD, easily reached by train. However, the walk we did that day required to take a ferry from Cronulla to Bundeena. From there we walked along the coast, approx 28km to Otford. What can I say? It’s such an amazing place. The walk itself was a bit challenging because of many uphill and downhill sections. Highly recommended!

Potts Point

Morning walk in Potts Point

Potts Point/Elizabeth Bay is where I live in Sydney. It’s located only 20 minutes walk from Sydney CBD, or a stone throw from Kings Cross station. Rich with history, culture and coffee shops, as well as many restaurants. Potts Point is an ideal place to visit for those who want to enjoy the picturesque surroundings of a bygone era with plenty of parks, little museums and charm of bayside in the neighbouring suburbs of Elizabeth Bay and Darlinghurst.
Very relaxing part of Sydney with many spots to enjoy your morning coffee and book :-)
