From Rosebay to Nielsen Park

Standard

We love walking, hiking, and trekking, so when we get to combine that with amazing views of the city we feel pleased as punch ­čÖé

From our previous trips to Sydney, we had already visited Nielsen Park, and both Shark and Milk beaches, on a couple of occasions and we really liked it. So when I was looking for a nice trail to do with some friends the choice was easy.

The path is easy to follow and for the most part there is a man-made walkway. Sydney┬┤s Harbour National Park is definitely a gem in the middle of the city, where you can breathe fresh air, and leave your busy schedules behind.

The weather was lovely and we had a great time. When we got home a couple of hours later there was a massive hail storm which definitely took us by surprise. Luckily, we were pulling into the garage when it started to pour.

Queen Victoria Building – Sydney CBD

Standard

Sydney’s CBD is the perfect place to go shopping.  You can find the most exclusive stores,  such as Tiffany’s,  Hermes,  Louis Vitton,  Prada,  Rolex,  to name a few :-p But you can also find several shopping centres with the most common shops where the other half shops!

Working in the area can be tempting and dangerous to the wallet,  as one always finds some time to kill during one’s lunch break… Not to mention the many inviting restaurants and cafes at each corner.

One of my favourite places to wander around is the QVB.  It’s a shopping centre in a beautiful old building.  The building feels like history,  style,  and it has its own personality,  quite the opposite of the modern malls.  There you can find amazing cafes,  modern shops and even some speciality stores,  such as the aboriginal gallery.
