What a wonderful day showing Linda, Will & yourself the hidden secrets around our home, bush & Sydney's North. Thank you for joining us and sharing your limited time in Sydney with us...we got on like old mates...testimony to Travelblog. We had to laugh when you wished to baulk at some of the climbing you had to do on our trek...but as I insisted on being tail end Charlie...what choice did you have?

Give Linda another hug from us...and enjoy the memories of your brief trip to Sydney.
