Afternoon Walk

new south wales

As I previously lived in a small town in a Kent County called Canterbury, I wasn’t really get used to walk much before I arrived in Sydney. Canterbury is indeed a very compact city compared to Sydney and walking seems do able from city area to uphill campus.

Therefore, wen I first step my foot in Sydney, was surprised by the distance between one suburb to another is actually quite far away. Though after few years living down under, I can surely say that it is actually a great way to get around as we can see many different aspects and a closer look of Sydney. ย (And on top of that, we are having a better healthy life) ๐Ÿ˜

  • These pictures below was taken during my walk from museum station to macquarie street, intercontinntal in the afternoon.

Lunch break is over, lets get back to business

Ready set go: museum station

Manly to Shelly beach

new south wales

One of my best favourite walk routes in sydney is from manly to shelly beach. It has a beautiful view overlooking the blue ocean water. Taking a train from city area to circular quay then a 30 min ride by ferry to manly suburb, is very recommended, albeit it is a bit pricey compared to a bus ride. 

As you go in and the ferry goes by; imagine you are sitting on the outside deck, and the wind breeze, refreshing indeed. You could close your eyes and relax your mind or simply just enjoying the vantage view of sydney city.  

โœจRecommended things to do in manly area: snorkeling/swimming at shelly beach, surfing at manly, visit boathouse for a quick snack at shelly beach, visit papi chulo restaurant at manly wharf for bbq platter.
