Sydney Photo Friday: North Sydney Post Office

One of the things I love most about Sydney is its history. While we may not have been around as long as many buildings in other parts of the world, we retain our links to the past with beautiful architecture like this. This stunner is actually the post office in North Sydney. This federation style building is much more attractive than any modern, personality-free facility, and I’m so glad to see it preserved.

Sydney Photo Friday: Bahai House of Worship

Sydney Photo Friday: Bahai House of Worship
I love this Bahai House of Worship, which sits in Ingleside, Sydney. It reminds us all of the diversity of religion we find in our multicultural city. It opened its doors to Bahai worshippers in 1961, and has stood proudly in the bushlands of western Sydney ever since. As the only temple of its kind...

Sydney Photo Friday: Swinging in Cronulla

Sydney Photo Friday: Swinging in Cronulla
Most often I use my weekly photo entry to showcase one of the city’s sites, an attraction or landscape that reminds us just how beautiful Sydney is. This week’s photo reminds us of beauty too, but in a different way. Because really, there’s nothing more beautiful than a happy child....

Sydney Photo Friday: Seagulls at Circular Quay

Sydney Photo Friday: Seagulls at Circular Quay
Is it really summer? The grey skies, constant drizzle, and middling temperatures may have us all a little confused, but the at least seagulls are still sticking around. Perhaps these plucky birds were simply waiting for someone to throw them a chip? Either way, they help to add character to a very gloomy...

Sydney Photo Friday: Coogee Baths

Sydney Photo Friday: Coogee Baths
If this photo doesn’t make you want to strip down to your Speedos, I don’t know what will. Taken at Coogee Baths, it shows a host of swimmers frolicking amongst the clear azure water. It might have been a little cooler over the last few days, but with temperatures predicted to surge back...

Sydney Photo Friday: Iceberg’s Pool and Bondi Beach

Sydney Photo Friday: Iceberg’s Pool and Bondi Beach
I agree. While it’s well and truly spring, I’m just not ready to venture back to the beach. This unseasonably cold weather we’ve been having combines with the wild and woolly winds to make things rather unpleasant indeed! But there is something beautiful about watching Bondi Beach and...

Sydney Photo Friday: Goodbye to Orange

Thank you for joining me as I reminisced about my adventures in New South Wales’ Central West region. Tomorrow I’ll be back talking about the city of Sydney, but for now I can’t resist looking back at the country one more time. My husband took this photo looking out the window at...

Sydney Photo Friday: Yoga at Bondi Beach

Bondi offers much more than sun, surf, and sand for beach bunnies. Yoga classes also run on the water’s edge. What better way to get into a tranquil headspace than to commune with nature and listen to the waves lapping the shore? This awesome phone catches some yoga lovers in the rather unflattering...

Sydney Photo Friday: Hawkesbury River by Night

With Valentine’s Day less than a month away my husband and I are already thinking about where to spend the special night. Sydney’s just got so many spots to choose from! But we’ve decided to head away from the hustle and bustle and visit the Hawkesbury River on the city’s outskirts....

Sydney Photo Friday: Rethinking Seagulls

Seagulls are the scourge of the Sydney summer, right up there with blowflies and jellyfish. They’re noisy and demanding, especially if you’re eating hot chips. But then I see a photo like this one, and I think maybe seagulls aren’t that bad after all. Sure, when they’re photographed...

Sydney Photo Friday: Anzac Bridge

Millions of us drive across Anzac Bridge every day, but we rarely get to see it from this amazing angle. More than just the Sydney Harbour Bridge’s poor cousin, Anzac Bridge is a truly striking marvel of modern architecture. The lights against the dappled night sky just add to the appeal of this...

Sydney Photo Friday: Surfer Dazzles at Dee Why

I seem to have a pattern of posting beach pictures whenever the mercury rises. Looking longingly at images of surfers cutting through the waves doesn’t necessarily make me any cooler, but I can’t seem to help myself. This beauty was taken at Dee Why. Image source: Tarotastic @ Flickr
