The trike tour experience in Sydney was a great way to see many of the famous places in a short time. From Noumea, in Sydney for the first time, Eric surprised Mariannick with the tour. Our trike rider Brian, picked our passengers up from their hotel in Bondi.
Firstly, they drove past the world famous Bondi Beach to the south side. Looking from the two ends of the beach give a different perspective. This is the beach where Bondi Lifeguards of the Bondi Rescue TV series is filmed. When in Sydney it is one of the places you should visit. The beach is seriously nice (but not our favourite) and we usually stop near the lifeguard station, made famous by the TV series “Bondi Rescue”. Bondi Beach is one of the most visited tourist sites in Australia. Bondi Beach is recorded by the Australian Museum that Bondi means place where a fight using boondi sticks (nullas nullas or fighting sticks) took place.
North Bondi and Brighton Lookout
Next, there are a couple of lookouts at the North Bondi headland. They all offer beautiful views of Bondi Beach and out to the Tasman Sea, part of the South Pacific Ocean. Brian stopped there for a few photos and so they could admire the view.
Watsons Bay and The Gap
Heading north through some upper class suburbs, they rode to “The Gap” and stopped for photos. The view towards North Head and out to the South Pacific Ocean. Watsons Bay sits on the end of the South Head peninsula. So far, on the trike tour experience in Sydney they have seen some great views and scenic sights.
Eastern suburbs and Kings Cross
Continuing on, they headed east through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay. After there, they rode through the infamous Kings Cross, though it has calmed down a lot since it’s heyday – home of the famous and huge Coca Cola sign. Kings Cross is also home to nightclubs and ladies of the night though it is not nearly as raunchy as it was in the 1970s (apparently).
Woolloomooloo and St Mary’s Cathedral
Finally, they rode through the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomoolloo and stopped at the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more. Then it was past St Mary’s Cathedral which is very impressive, even when riding past. It’s a Gothic Revival architectural building which opened in 1928. It took from 1866 to 1928 to build and has a height of 75m.
However, the 1.5 hours was almost up so Brian turned around and dropped them back at Bondi. In conclusion, the trike tour experience in Sydney was so much fun and very memorable. Feel the Freedom.
