Autumn in Sydney

April 27, 2013 — 2 Comments

I was looking through some of my old photos from a recent trip to Sydney and decided to post some of the pics.

I was there during autumn, one of the best times of year in Sydney, especially when you’re anywhere near the water – you can spend most of the day in the sun and not burn to a crisp.

A friend was up from Melbourne for a couple of days and wanted to see the harbour so we went and took a ferry from Manly to the city.

As is the case you always forget to take advantage of what’s right on your doorstep, I hadn’t used the ferry in years, and was blown away once again by the spectacular nature of Sydney Harbour.

I must admit, it made me just a little nostalgic.

You can make out the tiny island once used as a prison – aptly named ‘pinch-gut’
