Sydney, the gateway to Australia, is one of the world’s premier destinations. It is a city of spectacular natural beauty and stunning world famous architecture. Above all, it is renowned for its free-spirited outdoor lifestyle.
Overseas visitors delight in the diversity of walking opportunities that exist within easy reach of our home. So close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge (SHB) and the Opera House (OH) the Rocks and Botanical Gardens (BG).
Discover the charm of this magnificent harbour alone or on on guided walks that hug the coastline. Watch world-class yachts sail by as you hike along the high sea cliffs at the entrance to Sydney Harbour. Museums, Beaches, Art.
Take a guided tour and learn about Australia’s early history as you stroll through the alleys and laneways in the now-eclectic Rocks district. Just a short 12 min Ferry ride from our home that passes under the SHB and right by the OH. And guess what? Taking the Ferry is by far the preferred option of residents in this area. It’s just a ‘spectacular’ way for them to start the working day.
If you need convincing about our location then I suggest you take time to read though our many reviews.
