Ellie organised the trike tour Sydney beaches for her friend Karen. Karen has been living in Sydney for a while, but she is heading back to Ireland soon. Ellie wanted to give her an experience to remember. Ellie wanted Karen to revisit all her favourite places in Sydney before she left.
Favourite places in Sydney
Craig picked them up from the eastern suburbs. Firstly, they rode past Centennial Park and though Edgecliff, in the east. Secondly, they rode to Mrs Macquarie’s Point, where there are wonderful views west across Sydney Harbour. They look towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Next, they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is a view and an experience we never tire of. However, make sure you look up to see the arches in all their glory. They are wonderful to look at without the roof of a car blocking the view.
First stop was Jeffrey Street Wharf. Of course they had to stop for photos and to admire the gorgeous view. It is a spectacular view across Sydney Harbour towards the Opera House and the CBD. There is also an interesting perspective to the Harbour Bridge.
The Kirribilli Loop
They continued on, doing what we call “The Kirribilli Loop”. This takes us under the north end of the bridge. Pass by the entrance to Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool.
After that they rode through the northern suburbs of Neutral Bay and Mosman. Continuing down Military road, they rode past the lovely and well known Balmoral Beach. People from all over Sydney come here for a swim and a bite to eat.
Next, they rode over the Spit Bridge with it’s lovely views of Middle Harbour. Up into Seaforth for a beautiful view of Middle Harbour. After that they rode to Tania Park, part of Dobroyd Head. Another view we never tire of. We have a fabulous look at Sydney Heads – both north and south!
However, the 2.5 hours was almost up. Craig returned them to Coogee via the beautiful Clontarf. Back across the Bridge and through the eastern suburbs of Woolloomooloo, Kings Cross, Double Bay, Rose Bay, Bondi, Tamara and Bronte.
A fun and memorable experience. In conclusion, this trike tour Sydney beaches was a huge success.
Troll’s grandfather worked on the gang building the Spit Bridge. Therefore, the Spit Bridge has history. It is a bascule bridge opened in 1958 over Middle Harbour. The bridge opens at set times to allow yachts with high masts to pass. The Spit is the site of the Middle Harbour Yacht Club and a marina.
