Sydney cont.

Just spent the morning wandering around. After a walk around The Rocks I decided to get the train one-stop to the inner city area of Kings Cross and have look if there is any resemblance to the area of London with the same name. The answer is not really….

The came back to the CBD area and wandered back down to Circular Quay via the park.

I decided to get the ferry over to Manly in the afternoon and took some pictures on the way of all the various yachts out on the harbour on a Sunday afternoon.

Manly is a seaside suburb on the North side of the harbour. The easiest way to get to Manly from central Sydney is to take the Manly ferry - a 30 minute ride across the Harbour. Manly has got 2 main beaches linked by a pedestrian mall. One beach is on the harbour-side so is pretty sheltered and calm. The main beach is on the ocean itself so has big rolling waves. Its the first of a string of ocean beaches going up the coast. The Manly beaches aren’t quite as perfect and empty as Cable beach in Broome, but not at all bad for beaches in a big city!

Later back at the hotel, while watching TV, a P&O cruise ship sailed past the window…

  1. Kings Cross is a bit dodgy at night. I stayed there once in a little apartment Elizabeth Bay. Rosie was horrifed when I told her where I was staying.
