A Stroll Across The Golden City ‎ (Sydney)

Well, I was thinking today there would be no crowds in the Big Smoke (was I wrong!) I decide to head down and take some happy snaps anyway. Heres a sample... plus a few oldies from my collection. Enjoy Guys


All I wanna say is Sydney is unique on so many levels. Its layers of history, people, landscape and climate simply are unrivalled to any other city. Its sandstone past contrasting to its steel and glass future make the city burst in character. I never get sick of it.

Oh and just a warning... theres a fair few pics. Cheers




































































































































Hope ya enjoyed!!!!

I did indeed enjoy these photos, but they make my heart ache. Such beauty & warmth is difficult to see when it's ugly winter here. But definitely a big thanks for these fab photos!!!

Great thread!

It has shown that Sydney is much, much more than the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge!

Amazing city!

Thanks for sharing!

Now that was the best photo tour of Sydney ever... superb job on a wonderful city. It would be nice to see photos of the Blue Mountain area, and more showing how Sydney integrates with its harbour area.

Sydney looks like Vancouver threw up on Toronto (not an insult).

Although I think I know what you are trying to say, perhaps you should explain it.
