    Looking AT (instead of FROM) MacQuarie's Chair

    by 850prc Updated Jul 22, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most famous and advertised views of Sydney can be had from "Mrs. MacQuarie's Chair". (See my separate "to do" tip on the subject) Millions of tourists have snapped photos of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, as viewed from the chair.

    But, what about the scene from the other side of the looking glass? The accompanying photo shows the pleasing greenery of Mrs. MacQuarie's Chair/Point, as photographed from the edge of the Sydney Opera House.

    So, going Humphrey Bogart on Mrs. MacQuarie's Chair, "here's looking at you, kid".

    It's a nice look from the other side, too !

    Fire Department of N.S.W.

    Well, I could not go all the way to Australia and not check out those Aussie fire fighters!!

    They had the engine bay door open when I "happened" by. I snap a quick picture of the rig (engine) and was going on my merry way when one very cute fire guy poked his head out and said, "G'Day". Acccck, I have to talk now and be coherent?

    Well I told him I was from the states and what I used to do with our local fire department. He offered me a tour of the station and then *RRIINNGG" the fire alarm went off and they had to go.

    Rats! I was this close to scoring a N.S.W. firefighter T-shirt!!

    Rushcuttersbay park

    This is a nice park that lays on a beautyful bay behind the neighbourhood of Kings Cross.
    The park, tough not very big, is perfect for jogging or play football or rugby (there are open fields to play).
    Beautyful view aver the hundreds of little boats that are parked in the bay in front of the park!
    In few words enjoyable at all!

    Carrington Street - TTC

    I was suffering from my craving for the Hillwood Strawberry Wine, so i decided to ring them up from Sydney and asked whether i could dig out any wine shops selling it. Bingo! There's a Tasmanian Travel Center at Carrington Street and they sell Tasmania goodies!!

    I bought 3 bottles and finished them within 2 days.

    So if you are at Sydney, you can pop by this friendly tassie shop to take a look! The shop staff are very friendly. =)

  • Bowling for fun

    by scsteven Written Nov 2, 2004

    When most people thinkk of Bowls, they probarbly think of a sport played by people over the age of seventy. For a totally new bowling experience try the Paddington Bowling club in Sydney. The crowd is young and flash, the alcohol flows and while the game is important the main emphasis is on having a cracking time. There is a barbecue running for your typical Aussie tucker, which also helps in soaking up the alcohol. Then when the light starts to fade the bowls get packed away and out come the decks and then the party really starts to kick.

    Would have been fun to watch.. lol..
