The fun Christmas trike transfer was organised by Louise for herself, husband and parents. It was just for a bit of fun while on holidays. Our two trike riders picked them up from Louise’s home in the inner west of Sydney.
St Mary’s Cathedral, Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross
Firstly, they rode through the city and 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. Next, 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 up the hill and through Kings Cross.
Continuing on, 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). After there, they headed east through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay.
Watsons Bay and The Gap
Soon they headed north through some upper class suburbs. Subsequently 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. The photo was taken out the front of Macquarie Lighthouse, Vaucluse. So far, on the fun Christmas trike transfer they have seen some great views and scenic sights.
North Bondi and Brighton Lookout
There are a couple of lookouts at the North Bondi headland. Specifically, they all offer beautiful views of Bondi Beach and out to the Tasman Sea, part of the South Pacific Ocean.
However, the 1.5 hours was up, so 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.
Finally, the riders took some photos with the passengers at Bondi Beach. Then left them there to eat lunch and enjoy the rest of the day. In conclusion, the fun Christmas trike transfer was just that fun and memorable. Feel the Freedom!
