Taking the ferry from Parramatta to Circular Quay in the city is an hour of sun, spray and scenery. I love the ride and always take a tonne of photos.
Boronia Park Reserve is the start of a little-known spot for a really diverse and interesting bush walk – the Lane Cove Valley Walk – beside the Lane Cove River. Few tourists see this side of Sydney, which is a pity as it’s only a 30 minute bus ride from the CBD.
I was thoroughly enchanted by my first visit to Sydney Park. It’s a calming wetland oasis with just the right combination of wide open spaces, well-thought out water features and wonderful winding walking paths.
