    Northbank Community Garden

    Beautiful gardens totally cared for by volunteers. It's inspiring to see people create such a place of beauty just for the enjoyment of their community.

    We caught some great racing here, sitting back and enjoying a glass of wine. The greyhounds were on when we arrived - I'd never seen them up so close and racing before and it's amazing how powerful they are.

    Ngurra Bu Aboriginal Cultural Tours

    We were originally going to do a half day tour in the morning, but after checking out the other tours we decided to do the Twilight Tour. It was interesting seeing all the ceremonial places, ancient carvings and learning about the Aboriginal tribes that had lived there. hearing about it under the stars made it more magical, we made a good choice.

    Our Taronga Zoo visit was great, we watched a lot of the animals getting fed - the gorillas were particularly amusing, having play fights and showing off to the spectators. It was easy to get there via ferry, plus the zoo was laid out with an easy to follow route.

    This place was a lot of fun. Though it's an older amusement park, it's beautifully presented and well maintained. I'd recommend the roller coaster and the ferris wheel for wonderful views of the harbour and bridge.

    Tucked in the back of an Irish shop in a the gorgeous heritage area of the Rocks, The Tea Cozy serve a good old-fashioned Devonshire tea, with loose leaf tea in vintage teapots (including cosy of course!), and fresh homemade scones with regional gourmet jam.

    Oak Street is a great little dining experience. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly you have a choice of indoor dining or outdoors on the verandah. The menu provides a wide range of choices and the wine list offers similar variety.

    All food is created and cooked on premises. Genuine wood fired/fully Organic breads and pastries and they are absolutely delicious. Service is fast and pleasant.

    Another wonderful Italian restaurant/cafe. Though a bit remote, that worked it its favour. We enjoyed our meal outside in the sun after tasting some of the local wines. Check out their veggie garden too - almost everything is grown on site. My tomatoes at home were more than jealous.

    What a beautiful place! A multi-level restaurant with an interesting history. If you order something, you won't be disappointed by the Glenmore Burger, especially if you get a table on the rooftop.

    Explore North Head

    Walk from Shelly Bay via the boardwalk. Beautiful views from the top. Take your own food and drinks to save money.

    Check out Sealy Lookout

    Sealy Lookout is about 15 minutes out of town. Amazing views and well worth the trip. Just be aware that the road up is quite narrow.

    All walks are free

    The main attractions in the blue mountains - Devils Staircase, The waterfalls and the beautiful waking tracks are all free. This is an amazing credit to the local authorities.

    Visit the many cottage industry shops

    For the last few decades Bellingen has been known for it's alternative life-stylers and cottage industry shops. There is a lot of farm shops, galleries and alternative products for sale from the farm gates.

    The sleepy little seaside village of Soldiers Point is regarded by locals and regular Sydney visitors as the "quiet part of the Bay'...especially around Christmas/New Year & Easter holiday times..!

    Newcastle is the largest coal exporting harbour in the world, exporting over 100 million tonnes of coal per year.

    Wineries Galore

    From the early 1800s to 1840 there were over 500 acres of vineyards registered in Hunter Valley! Now days there are over 150 wineries and the area also produces cheeses, olives and olive oil - perfect for people who love Italian food as much as I do.

    NZ vs Australia

    As a Kiwi, it was interesting to learn about when the New Zealand flag stood beside the Australian flag on top of the Harbour Bridge. Rumour has it that the Australian flag was a bit taller, so when a bronze statue depicting a New Zealand World War One soldier was unveiled nearby, he had been built two inches taller than the Australian World War One soldier statue that stood next to him!
