An agent for Destination NSW contacted us to organise a trike. Destination NSW is doing a publicity campaign in Singapore. Some of their people from the Singaporean office were in NSW Australia for a few days only.
Our trike rider Steve, arrived at the pick up place. Of course, in typical Sydney style, it rained. The weather is unpredictable these days. Usually we can postpone the tours to another day but this couldn’t happen today.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode through the city and over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This was the main aim of their time in Sydney. The trike followed a van which had a photographer and a videographer filming out the back.
We always tell our passenger to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. It’s nicknamed ‘The Coathanger’ because of its arch-based design. It is the largest steel arch bridge in the world.
Next, they rode past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia. After that, they rode around the corner to Jeffrey Street Wharf. From here, the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge. So far, the publicity campaign shoot was working out despite the rain.
The Kirribilli Loop
They rode under the north side of the bridge and continued on their tour. The underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge – is very interesting. The Kirribilli Loop was finished by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool.
Then, it was back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge where the agent and photographers were dropped off to dry off ?. In conclusion the publicity campaign shoot was a success, they managed to get some good footage despite the rain.
