The Trikes and Harleys tour was many months in the planning. However, we worked out the route and the special events for the passengers. From France, they were eager to taste some Australian sweets. So, we made up a hamper to include all the usual Aussie foods such as lamingtons, macadamia nuts, Vegemite with biscuits, Tim Tams, Bundaberg Ginger Beer and so much more. They absolutely loved it all!
Firstly, the 3 Harley riders and 4 trikes picked the passengers up from their hotel in the Rocks.
Interestingly, the most historic place in Australia is the Rocks. It is a neighbourhood of historic laneways in the shadow of Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Rocks became established shortly after the colony’s formation in 1788 so it is the oldest residential, developed area in Australia – the birthplace of modern Sydney. With the arrival of European settlers in 1788, it was here that the convicts first set up house and shop.
Next, one of the experiences the passengers wanted to do was a tasting of Australian wines. We organised the tasting with a winery at Moore Park, Sydney. The French passengers were so interested and happy to learn about and taste the different Aussie wines.
This entertainment, dining and leisure hub spans 115 hectares and includes the serene Centennial Parklands, all only a stone’s throw from the city centre. From watching a major sporting match and browsing farmers’ markets to going horse riding, playing golf and enjoying a range of fun indoors activities, including wine tasting. So far, the Trikes and Harleys tour was a success, something different yet very fun!
Next, they rode east and past the world famous Bondi Beach to the south side. Here, there is a lovely view overlooking the whole of Bondi Beach. 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 was made extra 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.
Watsons Bay and The Gap
Heading North through some upper class suburbs, such as Vaucluse, 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 Gap is an ocean cliff which faces the Tasman Sea, is located in the suburb of Watsons Bay. Although the cliff is a popular tourist destination, it is infamous for suicides. This is where the photo was taken.
However, the 2 hours was up. It had been prearranged to drop them off at a restaurant in Watsons Bay so they could eat lunch. In conclusion, the Trikes and Harleys tour was a big success. Our French passengers experienced some Australian wine and sweets as well saw some very iconic Australian scenery. All while doing it the fun way, on our motorcycles!
