The birthday Harley tour was a present to Wendy from her son and daughter-in-law. Wendy is a Sydneyite so caught the train into Circular Quay. Accordingly, our Harley rider Phil met her there and took her on the Eastern Panorama tour.
I had an excellent time this morning with Phil and his gorgeous Harley. They have always been a favorite of mine. My son and daughter in law gifted me this present for my recent birthday.
Phil was a hive of information and a professional through and through. I have had a great experience with all the team at Troll Tours and highly recommend you.
Please feel free to use a photo … I am thrilled with them.
Firstly, they rode through the huge Centennial Park, it is a lovely experience, they stopped for photos at one of the ponds. 120 fields and venues, and 35+ different sports played in the Centennial Parklands. It is the largest community sports precinct in Australia! The history is also interesting: “Originally a swamp and then set aside as land for the water source for Sydney. Centennial Park was reconstructed as a public park and opened in 1888. Sir Henry Parkes’ vision was to create a ‘People’s Park’ in which the citizens of Sydney could ‘take in the air’ away from the Sydney town centre.”
Bronte Beach and Tamarama Beach
Next, they rode east to Bronte Beach and then north to the tiny but picturesque Tamarama Beach. It’s lovely to look out to the South Pacific Ocean from any of the beaches. So far, the birthday Harley tour was a lot of fun and very informative. Wendy has already seen many of the beautiful beaches and sights of Sydney on this tour.
Further north they came to the famous Bondi Beach. Here they stopped for photos (where this photo was taken) and why not with this view! On the left of this photo is the the world famous tower of the Bondi Lifeguards of the Bondi Rescue TV series. They stopped at the famous Bondi Beach for photos. 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.
After there, they headed west through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay. 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). Next, they rode through the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomoolloo and past 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.
However, the hour was up so Phil dropped Wendy back at Circular Quay. By the time this tour was up, Wendy wanted to go longer. As can be seen, the birthday Harley tour was a great one. In conclusion, it was lots of fun, informative and a memorable experience. Feel the Freedom!
