TWO CREEK WALKING TRAIL

Just before summer hits and the weather is too hot to do anything but sit at the beach and swim in the ocean, I wanted to do a quick few more walks. After finally finishing the Spit Bridge to Manly Walk a few weeks ago (plus writing about it in detail) I wanted to do something a little different this time and not do a coastal walk. I opted for a walk with a bit more shade and a different scenery then Australia’s coast, I know, I am such a spoiled brat. I did some Google searching and found the Two Creeks Walk located an easy bus trip away.  It offers (according to Google) post-war cobbled tracks and stonework, Coachwood forests, sweeping water vistas, and vegetation communities ranging from moist gullies to Sydney sandstone gully bushland. I think that sounds pretty spiffy and decided to bind on my walking shoes and wander this 7.5-kilometer-long track.

HOLIDAY DESTINATION SYDNEY – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

Sydney is one of the best cities I have ever been too (I love it so much that they can’t get rid of me). With over 100 beaches, a world-famous harbor and 236 days of sunshine. What is not to love? For tourists, it can be a tad daunting, since the playground is so immense and so much to see and do but it is hard to make a dent. With a famous bridge and opera house, many many beaches and lots of walking trails, at times it’s all a little overwhelming. So I thought I would help a fellow traveler out and scribble down what you must see and how much a trip to Sydney would cost you. (She ain’t cheap). You’re welcome…

WANDERING THE STREETS OF KIRRIBILLI

Kirribilli is located just across from the Sydney Harbor Bridge and is one of the city’s most established and affluent neighborhoods in Sydney. It has some stunning heritage buildings, amazing parks but most of all, it has some of the best Sydney skyline views there is. I wandered the streets of Kirribilli on a sunny Sunday afternoon and in this post, I will show you the best spots to go to.

THE TARONGA ZOO TO BALMORAL BEACH WALK

I am so sorry, but yet again I have wandered the trails of Sydney. This time I did the 6.5-kilometer medium difficulty Taronga zoo to Balmoral beach trail. During this walk, I encountered stunning harbor views, nature at its best, while exploring quiet beaches and beautiful luscious bushland. After finally doing the Spit Bridge to Manly Walk a few weeks ago and the amazing Bondi to Coogee walk before that, I forced myself to do one final walk before I headed out to Europe for my yearly holiday. I have heard about this walk from a friend of mine who recommended it and told me the city views are absolutely stunning and not to be missed. So when the weather was nice and the sun was out, I hoped on the bus towards Taronga zoo to do another walking trail.

CUDDLE A KANGAROO AT FEATHERDALE WILDLIFE PARK, SYDNEY

If you are looking for a hands-on Australian wildlife experience then I advise you to go to Featherdale Wildlife Park in western Sydney. Pat a Koala, hand feed a kangaroo and meet all your favorite Australian animals in an outdoor bush setting. It’s amazing. I arrived at the park soon as it opened so it was nice and quiet, with most of the animals all awake(woohoo)! Favorite part was the different walkthroughs; Pademelons, Kangaroos, and Koalas. the park is very interactive and allows you to feed the kangaroos, touch the Koala’s and learn about lots of different species through keeper talks. In this blog post, I am taking you with me during my little trip to this park.
