This week’s #FriFotos theme on twitter is harbours (or harbors, depending on where in the world you’re sitting right now). Given Sydney is such a beautiful harbour city, I thought I’d dedicate a short post to this particular harbour.
There is a lot to see and do in Sydney and the harbour is only one of them. But if you want to check it out (and I recommend you do), I’d suggest you do it on foot (or if you’re lucky – by boat).
There are a number of lovely walks you can take on both sides of the harbour, though if you stay on the city side you can team the experience with the botanical gardens. A little bit of exercise and all while appreciating the harbour view and gorgeous gardens (this is the best way to be active when travelling – go out and see things on foot!). There’s also a running track which takes you past Mrs Macquarie’s Chair which has one of the best harbour views around!
These photos were taken just two weeks ago, on the ferry to (and at) Taronga Zoo which coincidentally, also has amazing views of the Sydney Harbour!
You can actually walk right across the bridge, and a lot of people I know living on the north side of the bridge often walk into the city to get their exercise out of the way first thing in the morning. You have to be a little taller than i am to see above the security fence, but a trip up the pylons to check out the view is only $15 for adults, a significant saving when compared to the Bridge Climb if that’s something you’re considering (starting around $218 for adults)
Sydney is an absolutely gorgeous city, you can see why this doesn’t get old:
So next time you’re in a city like Sydney – make the most of it! Take a relaxing walk or go for a proper run. You can guarantee with views like this that there will be well-trodden pathways just waiting for you to find them!
