TRAM SHEDS

TRENDY TRAM SHEDS AT FOREST LODGE.

The old Tram sheds at Forest Lodge are newly opened and worth a visit. There is a variety of different food outlets and some shops, the development has been done very well. The single tram was found in a backyard on the Northern Beaches and has been restored, quite quaint, especially as most, if not all the others were destroyed by fire some years ago in the railway museum at Thirroul.

We shall start the walk at a different location to the map in the link - in Chapman Road, behind the PetO shop which is easily spotted as you come along The Crescent, Annandale (turn at the small roundabout where there is a kink in The Crescent). There should be plenty of free on street parking behind PetO.

This will be our last walk before going into recess until Nov 27th. If anyone wants to organise a walk during that time please email and see who is available, otherwise.....

Hasta la vista!!

SCULPTURE AT SAWMILLERS 2016

SAWMILLERS RESERVE

The third Sculpture at Sawmillers begins this weekend so we thought a visit was in order.

The marathon is being held in Sydney and we wanted to avoid the CBD so we will meet on the corner of Woolcott Street and Balls Head Road. This  means we can revisit that little cafe which is always so welcoming.

For Fathers Day we take a stroll around Balmoral and Georges Heights taking in some lovely views and of course one of our favourite cafes....the 'hole in the wall' at Chowder Bay.

Only about 5.5kms, but be warned there are steps.

Meet at the carpark (free) for Gunners Barracks, Georges Heights - take the Suakin Drive turnoff from Middle Head Road.

Looking forward,

ELIZABETH BAY AND DARLING POINT

IN AN EASTERLY DIRECTION....

For a change of scene this Sunday we will head over to the eastern side. This is an interesting walk with lots of variation. Passing by Garden Island, Elizabeth Bay and Rushcutters Bay, we also discover some interesting steps and hidden shortcuts to historic Elizabeth Bay House and delightful Fred McElhone Park, one of the most picturesque spots you will find.

There are hills and flats, we designed the walk so that we go DOWN the steps(phew!), the distance  measures 7.7kms.

We will meet at 8am in the pedestrian Plaza opposite the Finger Wharf, on Cowper Wharf Road, near pedestrian lights.  On street parking for 2 hours is available if you make a right hand turn after the Shell Service Station on Cowper Wharf Road, meter money required.


Please let me know if you will be coming, then I will SMS if we cancel.........the forecast is for showers, 

Cheers,
Bernadette
