The eastern city sights tour was organised by Lisa for Bernadette. Lisa is a support worker and Bernadette really wanted to go on a Harley for her birthday. She wasn’t able to but a trike tour with her support worker sitting next to her was perfect. Bernadette was so excited in the build up to the ride and during the ride. She wanted it to never end.
Our trike rider picked them up from their accommodation in Sydney CBD.
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. They didn’t want photos taken so this is a photo of Bronte Beach. Then it was 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 Eastern city sights tour was a lot of fun and very informative. The passengers have 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 1 hour was almost up so the rider rode through the Sydney CBD and back to their hotel. In conclusion, the Eastern city sights tour was fun and memorable. A great experience! Feel the Freedom!
