When I visited Manly Beach, it’s already dark, therefore I haven’t seen it in day light. Due to limited time, I had been content in walking in the beach at night. The was named by Captain Arthur Phillip describes the indigenous people’s with confidence and manly behaviour and named it as ‘Manly Cove’. The photo is part of Sydney Walking Tour April 2014.
After writing lots of post for Melbourne (though I still have lots in my plates for Melbourne and Victoria State), now I am moving to Sydney for the mean time where I also enjoyed a walking tour. I had been in Sydney for 4 times while I was in Australia. But some of those were just peeking and passing. If you had a chance to read some of my post for Melbourne, I mentioned that I only travel every weekend or public holiday. Why? Because I was in Australia for work and not for holiday, that’s why I grab my chance to go around the country most of the time during weekend or holiday.
And maybe you are wondering, I had been 4 times in Sydney which means I went to many places within the city, but on the contrary I had visited just few places. The first ever I landed in Sydney was during the time that I attended Music Collaboration activity and stayed in the city for at least 33 hours which happened second week of April 2013.
After two weeks, second trip happened when I joined Blue Mountains and Jenolan Cave tour for a day and I logically stayed in Sydney for 11 hours. Third trip to the city, was during my visit to Canberra for a day tour on June in the same year since its more expensive to fly directly from Melbourne to Canberra and again I spent 11 hours in the city which mostly in the airport and accommodation.
During my forth and my last travel in the city which happened last April 2014, I dedicated the trip only to to see Sydney. The plan were walk around the city in some popular areas like Opera House and Circular Quay for the second time. Next, was the walked inside Queen Victoria Building. Then followed by an adventure walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach. And last but not the least was a night walk in Manly Beach.
Here’s the list of places all combined from all my walking trips to the city that I had a chance to see in this incredible metropolis down under that so popular in the world and always thought to be the capital city of Australia, even myself made that mistake before.
