HARBOURSIDE

CLIFTON GARDENS TO THE ZOO

We thought a walk around the shores of the Harbour would be good this Sunday, this walk is about 8.5kms and includes the Scottish cairn in Mosman (just to keep Steve and I in holiday mode) as well as some spectacular harbour views.  Coffee at the hole in the wall at Clifton Gardens will revive us before the last uphill leg.

Meet at 8am in the carpark near Gunners Barracks, Suakin Drive, Georges Heights. Follow the signs to Gunners Barracks, the car park is as far as that road takes you. No meter money required this week. 

Looking forward to catching up and hearing about the Drummoyne and Barangaroo walks, which looked amazing from the pics.

CASTLECRAG AND NORTHBRIDGE

BUSH WALKING IN THE CITY

To indulge Steve and I, so we don't miss the bush too much , this week we walk around Northbridge and Castlecrag. The walk is about 5.5kms covering some bush and suburban streets. There are a few hills, some bush and water views.........and we visit 'The Haven' a Burley Griffin outdoor amphitheatre.

Meet  in the car park at the end of The Outpost in Northbridge, turn sharp left on Kameruka Road, just near our place. Plenty of unmetered parking. Sat nav might read Northbridge Bowling Club.








Cheers,

PYRMONT



This Sunday, we have Pyrmont in our sights. This is a fascinating walk, have you ever heard of Darling Island? 

This is about a 7km walk, not many hills and definitely no bush tracks, some interesting cityscapes and a fascinating water sculpture featuring cantilevered ladders.......

We begin the walk near the corner of Mount Street Walk and Refinery Drive, no free parking around here so bring some meter food. We then proceed along the waterfront and see the Bridge from a different perspective, before we get up close and personal with the Anzac Bridge.

BUFFALO CREEK AND FIELD OF MARS

FIELD OF MARS AND BUFFALO CREEK

A familiar area for most of us to drive by, but how many of us have ventured into the Field of Mars Wildlife Refuge and Cemetery?

This walk will be about 8kms and take in Boronia Park Oval, part of Buffalo Creek Reserve and a wander through Field of Mars, it looks very interesting. 

Gotta love this city!

Meet in Princes Street, near the intersection with Pittwater Road, a few coffee spots to choose from here.

BERRY ISLAND

BERRY ISLAND

The weather on Sunday promises to be good so we are going on an island walk.....Berry Island.

We will start in Shirley Road, near Wollstonecraft Station, where we very happily found a cafe which opens on Sunday :-) The walk is about 8kms with some steps for our heart health.

Highly recommend this walk, it was very picturesque, see you Sunday.





 A wattle baby.........



 Keep a lookout for this one...........
This last picture is where a tree has blocked the track - turn RIGHT to follow the easier path and LEFT (further left bro) to go via Machu Picchu.......
