The shortcut from Potts Point to Wooloomooloo
When we first began thinking of visiting "Mrs. MacQuarie's Chair" and the Royal Botanic Gardens, I was perplexed to see that going to the end of Victoria Street, which seemed the logical direction, might not work. You see, Victoria kind of dead-ends up above the Wooloomooloo Bay area.
No worries, said Chris Bahr, owner of the Victoria Court Hotel. "Just take the stairs". Well.... I didn't see anything on my map about any stairs, but we took Chris at his word and headed down Victoria Street.
Voila! At the end of the street over on the left are "The McElhone Stairs", a long series of cement stairs leading down from Victoria Street to Cowper Wharf Road, which runs along Wooloomooloo Bay/Harbour.
During our time in Sydney, we made great use of the stairs, using it as our shortcut on walks to MacQuarie's Chair, The Domain, The Botanic Gardens, The Opera House and Harbour Bridge, the Circular Quay.... you get the idea. It became our favorite Aussie shortcut.
And, climbing all those steps numerous times each day certainly added to the fitness program. : ) I remember making a remark, on about the ten thousandth time we walked the stairs, that went something like this..
"I wonder how many of these stairs there are?"
Bonnie says "120", matter-of-factly. So, if you ever have this question in Trivial Pursuit, there are 120 steps in the McElhone Stairs of Potts Point, Sydney.
The Opera House...
Visit the Opera House (commonly known as "the nun's scrum", a subject of thousands of postcards and T-shirts. With its image on millions of happy snaps, the Sydney Opera House is Australia's most recognisable icon. Yet is not without controversy, 14 troubled years (construction commenced in 1959 and finished in 1973), and $95 million over budget later, its controversial sail-like roofs gleam and glisten against the appropriate backdrop of Sydney Harbour. Finally finished in 1973, it now has an impressive yearly program of up to 3000 contemporary and classical performances and is a truly memorable place for theatre, opera and ballet, in one of the most magnificent city settings anywhere in the
world. The Opera House was build after a design from "Joern Utzon".
See for more pics in the Opera House travelogue please.
One most peculiar thing about Sydney must be the persistent use of the same grey-charcoal suits by practically all men who are intended to do business of any sort. The Rocks, the harbour, the other harbour, it is all about these relatively grey suited men walking and being important. Is this a kind of conspiracy, a key for success or just a remnant of the lingering British influence? Whatever the case, if you are on business in Sydney, you might consider dressing up accordingly and you will be laughing!
Weather in Sydney has a mind of its own. And apparently it never shares its designs with the forecasters. I don't think I saw a single accurate prediction in all the days I spent there. So be prepared. It can be hot and stifling in the morning, then within half an hour it will turn to chilly and rainy. When you come, bring enough clothing to suit all the different conditions. Think layers!
In general, though unstable, Sydney weather tends to be fairly mild, I noticed. At least not while I was there in Nov/Dec. Oh, and be sure to bring AND USE lots of sunscreen. Sun in the Southern hemisphere tends to be brighter, and that nasty ozone hole is right overhead (or at least close enough). That sunburn WILL sneak up on you if you're not careful!
