Looking for a secluded beach close to Sydney? Believe it or not, they do exist! Resolute Beach at Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park will make you feel like you have been transported to a tropical island while getting some exercise in the process.
We were pleasantly suprised by what we found, paved alley ways, with string lanterns across courtyards, beautiful murals and 6 hawker style eateries to choose from. All the eateries serve Asian cuisine from various countries: Singaporean, Thai, Malaysian, Cantonese, Japanese and Vietnamese.
A mere hours drive from Sydney’s CBD lies the beautiful Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park With its breathtaking views, iconic Australian bushland and ancient Aboriginal engravings, this is the perfect day trip for anyone looking to get away from the city.
There is no better way to warm up on a chilly winters day than a nice brisk walk! A couple of weekends ago we did the Hermitage Foreshore walk which follows the ocean and has the most spectacular views of Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House as well as great swimming beaches and parks for picnicking.
If you ever find yourself at Circular Quay in Sydney, make sure you head over to the Contemporary Museum of Modern Art! The museum is located on the harbour edge and is housed in the former Maritime Service building – a great example of late Art Deco Architecture.
The Sydney Living Museums is a group of 12 museums, houses and gardens that aim to take you on a journey through time and place to experience life as it would have been in earlier years.
The walk is about 6km and took us an hour and a half with all the stops to take in the breathtaking views, take a few photos and cool off in the sea. It is a very popular route, especially on the weekend so you will have to walk single file for some of the way, but it’s totally worth it!
The 4th of March marked a month of living in Sydney, and we have been very busy getting all our admin things sorted like Australian drivers license, Medicare cards, Tax file numbers and apartment/house hunting. The house hunting part is quite depressing and frustrating, the prices are crazy here and there are so many people…
