PHOTO DIARY #7 THE ROCKS, SYDNEY

PHOTO DIARY #7 THE ROCKS, SYDNEY

Even though it was a rainy cold(yes it gets cold in Australia haha!) winters day last Saturday, I still decided to go for a wander through Sydney. I ended up in the oldest part of Sydney called “The Rocks”.

The Rocks is a neighborhood of historic laneways in the shadow of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Locals and many tourists mingle at the open-air Rocks Markets, purchasing street food and handmade souvenirs. The area has some of Sydney’s oldest pubs and many of the upscale restaurants have spectacular harbor views.

I took my DSLR camera with me, but unfortunately, it was not working, so I had to take pictures with my trusty iPhone. They didn’t turn out too bad – thank goodness, but they would have looked better if they would have been taken with my fancy-pants camera.

PHOTO DIARY #6 TARONGA ZOO

I love going to the zoo, so I took my fancy-pancy camera with me to take some pictures. 

Taronga Zoo is Sydney’s local zoo and can be reached by a 15-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay.  Taronga Zoo cares for over 4000 animals from over 350 species, many of which are threatened. It also offers amazing city views and loads of great picture opportunities, as well as being situated amongst one of Sydney’s most beautiful national parks. This is one place that is sure to impress. 

Check out some of my pictures below…

PHOTO DIARY #4 PALM BEACH

PHOTO DIARY #4 PALM BEACH

Palm Beach in Sydney’s Northern Beaches is one of Sydney’s icon beaches. Besides being a great surf beach, it is also home to the world-famous show, Home and Away. This iconic beach is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, whether you are a fan of the soap opera or not. Personally I am not, but I thoroughly enjoyed the day out here.

Remeber to swim between red and yellow flags here because there are some very strong currents. 

Home and away’s surf club is along towards the other end for a photo op if you are a fan! You might even catch a good filming day!

PHOTO DIARY #3 FRESHWATER BEACH
The other day I took a lovely trip to Freshwater beach with a friend of mine. Freshwater is a very beautiful and fairly big beach, with a terrific rock pool and nice little playground

The beach is a popular for young families and a favorite spot for preschoolers during the week.

It’s a surf beach which usually has a safe shallow area for splashing and sometimes there are sandbars that protect parts of the beach.
Nonetheless, as ever, it’s vital to swim only between the flags.

Unfortunately, the day we went there was an unusually strong current and we were not allowed to swim. nevertheless, it was a lovely day.

PHOTO DIARY #2 BALMORAL BEACH

What is better than spending a Saturday afternoon at the beach! Especially when it is supposed to be autumn and we still have summer temperatures (27 degrees the day I went to the beach)

This weekend I ended up going to a local beach about 20 minutes from where I live. It is a family-friendly beach because it is a harbor beach and therefore you don’t get many waves. It has lovely clear blue water so you can see a lot of fish if you snorkel or wear goggles.  Continue reading “PHOTO DIARY #2 BALMORAL BEACH”

PHOTO DIARY #1 BRIDGE WALK AND SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

PHOTO DIARY #1 BRIDGE WALK AND SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE

This weekend I decided to go for a wander and did the Bridge walk from Milsons point all the way to the Sydney opera house. A beautiful walk filled with lots of great picture opportunities.

I walked over the bridge, then via the rocks, too I walked to the circular quay to the opera house.

It took me about 2 hours to complete the walk. I did take the bus back home cause I was exhausted by then end of the walk. (it was a bit warmer than anticipated so I was way overdressed an sweating my ass off – worth it though, I love doing this walk)
