Surveyor's Point of reference
Clear skies and sunshine! John and Norah have planed a day in Sydney Central. We took the train into the City. Upon arriving in Center City, we walked to Central Quay where we had close up views of the magnificent Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge.
From the Central Quay, we took the ferry across Sydney Harbor to Manley. We had lunch at an outdoor café and walked to the beaches. The beaches are beautiful and clean. Many swimmers and surfers were taking advantage of a beautiful summer day.
Returned to Center city by ferry and walked to the Rocks area, the historical section of the city. In early days, the Rocks divided the Convict section of town from the Colonial Settlers section.
After walking about the Rocks, we took a bus back to George Street in Central City. The four of us walked through the Victoria Building, a very fine historical building with grand archways and mosaic floors. From there, we walked to Hyde Park (historical)one of Sydney’s beautiful city parks.
To wrap up the Grand Urban Walk we proceeded to China Town. It was literally alive with pedestrians. We chose
The Harbor Bridge
from one of the many restaurants and had dinner in China town.
