Blatt Family 27.12.19 – city Bridge trike tour

city Bridge trike tour

Our passengers are from overseas, in Sydney for a holiday. Of course, they decided a trike ride was the best way to see the sight. A city Bridge trike tour was organised for them. This is going to be fun they said, it was!

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Our trike riders Steve and Craig picked them up from their hotel in the CBD. Firstly they rode across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Make sure you look up, it’s not often you can see the view without metal obstructing your view.

Jeffrey Street Wharf, Kirribilli

After the bridge, they stopped at Jeffrey Street Wharf, Kirribilli. Photos were taken from here, the view is stunning across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House and the city.

Mrs Macquarie’s Point

Next, they rode back across the Bridge, through the city to Mrs Macquarie’s Point. Similarly, the views west are stunning across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Harry’s Cafe De Wheels and Finger Wharf

Continuing on, they rode through Woolloomooloo, past the iconic Harry’s Cafe De Wheels and Finger Wharf. This leads into the infamous Kings Cross, through to Rushcutters Bay and Double Bay.

However, time was nearly up so they turned around and headed back to Macquarie Street and the Opera House before returning to the hotel. In conclusion the city Bridge trike tour was a huge success.

Harry’s Café de Wheels is over 70 years old, and has maintained a tradition of daily fresh deliveries of its pies.

The story of ‘Harry’s Café de Wheels’ goes back to the depression years of the late 1930’s.

The world was on the brink of a devastating war, when Harry Edwards opened a caravan café near the front gates of the Woolloomooloo naval dockyard.

Word of mouth is always the best recommendation! Harry’s ‘pie n’ peas’ and crumbed sausages soon became a popular part of the city’s nightlife – keenly sought by sailors, soldiers, cabbies, starlets and coppers alike. Harry operated the caravan until 1938 when he enlisted in the AIF during WWII.

Definitely, best known for their dish “Tiger Pie”, a type of Australian meat pie named after the original founder of Harry’s. We love them, as a result, we eat too many!
