Note to readers: the WiFi is pretty sporadic in Oz, so this post is about 3 weeks out of date!
Saying goodbye to our camper was pretty sad, but arriving in North Bondi, to sunny skies and market day, more than made up for it!
We rented an apartment next to popular cafe Porch, on Campbell Parade, right next to the beach.
Immediately, we felt alive with the vibrancy of the town. It just beckons you to be out in the glistening ocean or on the beach, walking or running along the street art-clad promenade, drinking coffee in a cool cafe, or swimming in Icebergs (the sea pool at one end of the beach).
We spent a day in Sydney, starting at bustling Circular Quay and ending in the Botanical Gardens.
Amongst the regular ferries, immense cruise ships float in the harbour, and scarily dwarf the Opera House whilst Sydney Harbour Bridge arches high above it all.
An air conditioned respite in the Museum of Contempory Art rewarded us with a fun wander around the funky exhibits.
Reaching into the clouds above, the beautiful ‘sails’ of the Opera House are truly magnificent to admire from all angles.
Running (Jake and Tash) or walking en famille from Bondi to Bronte was perhaps our most favourite activity whilst here. The coast-hugging path has incredible views out to sea, and when you reach Bronte there’s a cute sea pool (have we mentioned yet that we love Australia’s sea/rock pools?!).
Bye bye Sydney, we are bound for Christmas in Bellingen with our gorgeous friends, the DonScrutts! We’ll be back when we fly to New Zealand!
