I could not leave Sydney without mentioning that endearing symbol the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Opened in 1932. That was the year Jack was born and he has a real affection for the old “coat hanger” as it is affectionately called.
It can be seen from all parts of the city. As you wander around town it will suddenly pop up from among the glass towers. But the best place to see it is along the foreshore at Darling Harbour and from the Rocks. Framed by Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, and nestled on the edge of breathtaking Sydney Harbour, The Rocks offers an unrivalled blend of the old and new. This historic area has the bridge rearing over the top of it.
As we walk around Darling Harbour Jack takes a photo of the bridge as the early morning tourists order breakfast.
It is weekend and the colourful Rock’s markets are on. We wander through the varied and interesting stalls and then round into the historic part of the Rocks where the original dwellings have now been renovated into attractive and expensive homes.
The Rocks are also renowned for their cafes and restaurants
This is an area that you must explore on foot. Really a week was not long enough to really see all Sydney has to offer, but we have been here before and we will certainly be back again in the future.
