Where? Australia. Sydney. Queen Victoria Building. Enter through the George Street entrance. Ground floor. When you recover from the spectacularly beautiful interior, turn left. Walk about 40m. In the centre of the mall is the “Royal Bakery” with tables and chairs. I (John) chose a Steak and Mushroom pie. The pie is full of tender steak, mushrooms and delicious gravy. WARNING: Take care when you cut into the pie or take your first bite! Suddenly out will flow plenty of gravy. And the pastry? Wait until you taste it! Is it the tastiest pie in the world? Most probably! But decide for yourself! See 3 PICTURES below. June 2022.
To get there? The Queen Victoria Building (the “QVB”is a few minutes by tram from Circular Quay. Don’t forget to tap on and tap off with your Opal Card. Enjoy.
Wow! Second highest building on Southern Hemisphere Exciting lift to the top. 360 degree views. 309 meters high. See Sydney like an eagle sees Sydney. A virtual reality roller coaster ride. At the tip. An awesome experience. Enjoy the pictures.
The QVB is a magnificent shopping mall in Sydney, Australia. It is several stories high. There are just under 190 shops/ boutiques all luxuriously appointed. There are many places to eat. A huge clock hangs in the mall. A separate blog is coming about this amazing clock. Here are some pictures taken in the QBD. Don’t miss it if you go to Sydney. I assure you: Seeing is believing. Enjoy.
We visited the amazing Sydney amusement park today. It is on the edge of Sydney Harbour almost below the Sydney Harbour Bridge. What a funfair! Rides galore. Dodgem cars. Rotating swings. There is also a Ferris wheel. Lots of food. From the fair ground there are stunning views of Sydney Harbour and the mighty bridge. There is underground parking. Also, the ferry stops right at the entrance to the park. It is must for kids of all ages. See picture and.video below.
Join us on a visit to Sydney’s wonderful Aquarium. Watch the video see pictures of beautiful fish. There is an underwater glass tunnel. We literally walked among the sharks. We also went on a virtual reality dive with sharks. Amazing.
When visiting Sydney, a visit to the Aquarium is a must. It is in Barangaroo, a short ferry ride from Circular Quay. I hope you enjoy the video.
There is treasure in Manly, an Australian coastal town close to Sydney. You can find the treasures along the waterfront path that joins Manly Beach to Shelly Beach. The treasures consist of sculptures of sea creatures attached to the rock face next to the path. Don’t miss a walk along the path if you are lucky enough to visit gorgeous Manly. Here are some pictures of just some of the sculptures. Please scroll down. There are 6 pictures. Enjoy.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Make sure you put Manly on your bucket list now.
All from my son in Manly. The dramatic escape is about him! May everyone keep safe. Please scroll down for a picture and 3 short videos and the story (at the end) of my son’s close shave. Thank you to my son MB for the pictures and videos.
