A long weekend in Sydney.

Arrived in Sydney at 6am on Wednesday morning. By 2pm, child 3 had whisked me round the City he's called home for the past 2 years.

79% of the steel used to build the Sydney Harbour Bridge was imported from England.

Thursday we walked the Coast from Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach.

Surfing on Bondi Beach.

Friday we visited the Blue Mountains.

Yes, this climb was as scary as it looks. If you slipped you could easily hurtle over the edge.

With a 52 degree incline this is the steepest passenger railway in the world. The Scenic Railway. By the time we got a 3rd of the way up we were in the standing position and holding onto the roof bars.

Saturday a boat trip around the bay to Manly and dinner in Darling Harbour.

Sunday we're on our way along the coast towards Melbourne.


  1. You are lucky to have such a wonderful destination to go when you visit your son. Love the bird photos! Australia is definitely on my bucket list, along with New Zealand. You are a traveler!

    1. I am thankful the kids and both hubby and I do live in interesting locations to visit

  2. It looks like you've been having a fab time.
    That railway looks more like a rollercoaster. Eek!

  3. So very nice. What great places you went to. #PoCoLo

  4. Wow - it certainly sounds like you've been busy! I hope you're enjoying sightseeing x

  5. Hi Suzanne, what a wonderful country to visit. Thos stairs have to have given you buns of steel! That is one steep incline and I'm not sure you'd have got me in that train. It seems more like a glass elevator going up the side of the mountain and as for the noise? My heart would have given out with fear!


    1. I think my legs have recovered now from all the climbing, the train was exciting but scary at the same time, I'm glad i experienced it

  6. What a beautiful place, it looks like you had an amazing time.
    Thanks for sharing with #pocolo
