Sydney by land - North Head

My friend organised for us to see an art exhibition but got the address wrong so we ended up strolling around North Head instead. This city is truly stunning and you can immerse yourself in it's beauty without spending anything except time.

The Memorial Walk has pavers dedicated to the fallen and historical events of the Wars that Australia has fought in.

Then you can veer off onto a dirt track to join up with the Fairfax lookout.

There are historical ruins still intact on the walk.

Just peaceful serenity, as far as the eye can see - and in whale season you occasionally get a surprise show, as the giant mammals frolic in the harbour.

It was such a splendid afternoon, I wondered why we didn't visit more often.

Do you make the most of where you live?

  1. Beautiful place and wonderful shots.

  2. How lovely - an interesting view of the city from the countryside.
    Thank you for sharing at

  3. Beautiful coastal area! Oh yes, with the forest all around us, I enjoy it every day, and look at the sky and take pics of the sunset, and take time to view from the big windows in the living room.

  4. What a beautiful area! We try to get out and explore new areas in our region at least once a week.

  5. I find a 'wandering aimlessly' approach can deliver more pleasant surprises than a well-organized tour! The picture with the large sailing ship is special. We certainly make the most of where we live - always out and about exploring!
