The Rocks Weekend Market

by thundersunny

I am trying to find a vendor which specializes in ceramics, hand painted of cats or dogs. He sell mugs, water bowls, plates, tons of stuff with a cat or dog motiff. Can you help me find him? I visit Sydney once or twice a month, I am a flight attendant and want to try to order some of his things online.

Can't believe I just said that.

Cheers, Mike

Hey I didn'r have to go I let my fingers to the clicking and googled it and I thin by asking for Rocks Markets I came up with
Hugo Designer Dogwear

A space dedicated to all cats and dogs with a sense of humour, a sense of class, and definitly something different. On our stall you will discover a wonderful selection of designer dog and cat collars, leads, poo bag holders, bandannas, pewter ID tags, pets beds, feeding bowls, pet coats and slip on pyjamas, toys for pets

And they have a website for online shopping
Not sure if he is the mu g and plate guy but he might know his opposition in the animal stalls

Hi I finally got to the rocks market today and found the guty who does the dog and cat ceramics. He said he is there every weekend now he has been bush for about 9 years .I told him about the website and that you were looking his name is Gojo and he does not have a business card,website and said he had no paper to write his email address on He also said he does not do the dog pictures unless a special order and he had a cat bowl otr two but mainy into coffee mugs ,teapots and plates now . He said he used to get a lot of airline staff regulars from Atlantic when they flew into Australia and wondered if you were one of them .
He said he works two jobs abd does the ceramics as well so has no time to advertise or do a web page .So sorry but unless you go to the rocks markets yourself and see if he is the guy you want thats the best I can do to help you He said he only sells there no other markets .His stuff was good though if you like cats .

Travel Tips for Sydney

by sharpshank

A visit to the Aquarium is my top tip for someone who has a few days to spend in Sydney. Well designed, beautifully presented and a magical experience. Cruising around Sydney by ferry is a great way to get a real flavour of the city, and a chance to meet locals and travellers alike. With the sun shining, the Opera House in view even living and working in Sydney feels like a holiday.

Undecided where to go next?

by Dreks

Oh well, just go to Circular Quay and decide from there. This is basically a ferry hub to going practically anywhere in Sydney where there is body of water. This is also the starting point for the Sydney Explorer and Bondi Explorer bus tours. Feeling tired and lazy? There is always a corner around the area where you can just sit and adore a seaside view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera house or watch several free street perfomances. And with just a short walk, you can also visit The Rocks or The Royal Botanic Gardens. At Circulary Quay, you will never run out of things to do!

by ankx

Woolloomooloo Bay has a long association with bathing. Prior to and after European settlement, the Cattigal people bathed there and it is along this shore that Sydney's first baths were built. Between 1833 and 1955, this section of the bay was the site of four separate ladies bathing establishments, including Mrs Biggs' Ladies Baths and the Domain Baths for Ladies.

Eating Tim Tams!!

by SydneyGal

If you are a chocolate fan, you CANNOT miss out on trying the famous Aussie favourite, a TIM TAM. Basically this is a rather decadent rectangular shaped chocolate biscuit, with 2 layers of chocolate biscuit with a chocolate cream filling in the middle, all covered in chocolate. absolutely delicious. You can buy them in any supermarket. You can either eat them straight from the packet, or alternatively you can do the 'Tim Tam straw'. What is a tim tam straw you ask?? ;) Basically, this is what you do:
1. Bite opposite corners off each end of a tim tam
2. Stick one corner of the tim tam in a cup of tea or coffee or milk
3. Put your lips to the other corner of the tim tam
4. SUCK!!!! Until you get liquid in your mouth
5. QUICKLY!!! Put the other end of the tim tam in your mouth - I mean QUICK!... because there could be a bloody big mess if you don't do it quickly ;)
6. Enjoy the chocolate explosion tantalising your tastebuds

As you can see in the pic, when Jennifer Love Hewitt visited Australia recently, she raved on about our tim tams and even did the tim tam straw on national TV with TV host, Rove McMannus. ha ha ! ... good to see the girl enjoys her choccie!

Packing List

by RamSter

a REALLY good camera, one that can take clear photos at night, one thats steady, dont expect taking photos like these with disposable cameras :) Sydney is usually sunny, yet in Summer we do get a few storms though its humid usually. More film than you can poke a stick at.
