Taking the Ferry to Watsons Bay – A Sydney Must

The Ferry to Watsons Bay  If you’re visiting Sydney for more than two days, you have to take a ferry from the City or Manly to Watson’s Bay. If you live in Sydney and you haven’t done the ferry to Watsons Bay yet you are crazy.   It is one of those iconic trips that […]

The Beach Shed, Dee Why

The Beach Shed – Right on Dee Why Beach The Beach Shed is our local happy place.   It’s such a relaxed place with the best view and great coffee and food. I don’t think any overseas visitor has stayed with us without having a least one trip to the Beach Shed.    I really love […]

The Powerhouse Museum with Kids

The Powerhouse Museum with Young Kids   The Powerhouse Museum is a strange combination of exhibits and displays. It’s taken me a while to work out what the “ethos” of the Museum is. It has a bit of transport to it, then some space and then the high energy Wiggles Display.    If you’ve enjoyed […]

McKell Park Playground, Brooklyn 

McKell Park  Discovering McKell Park Playground in Brooklyn is another example of us getting lost. It’s actually embarrassing how silly I was this time. However all is well that ends well and I’m glad we stumbled on this little gem!   We set out North of Sydney to visit Brooklyn to feed ducks and didn’t see […]

The Greens, North Sydney

The Greens Last weekend a group of us headed off with the kids to lunch at the Greens, North Sydney. It was not at all what I expected but a welcome difference.   At first you rock up and think you may be going to an old man’s bowling club (to my credit it was […]

Birkenhead Point Outlet 

Birkenhead Point Outlet  Birkenhead Point Outlet is a fantastic place to shop. You could spend all day there though so be careful of your feet and your wallet.   I love a good outlet shopping and this is one of the two good places I know of in Sydney (the other is DFO Homebush). Birkenhead […]

Wheeler Park Playground, Narrabeen Lakes, Narrabeen
