    Walk - Glebe to Sydney Opera House

    February 3, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Glebe is a walkable distance to Central Sydney (sort of!!). It has tree lined roads and a range of individual shops, restaurants and cafes with every type of Asian cuisine you can think of. Our route took us first to China Town where we had lunch at East Ocean Restaurant. There was no menu, instead there was a constant stream of waitresses pushing trolleys trying to get you to have whatever they had on offer. We had a small selection of dim sum, Peking duck, fresh veg, pork dumplings and noodles. Next stop Paddys Market a massive indoor market with all sorts of tourist tat including a bottle opener with a set of Kangeroo testicles attached, classy. The fresh food area was excellent everything looked so bright and vibrant. We walked through the central business district. Lots of road works due to the extension of the Tram system. Passed the site where the first flag was raised by the first settlers and on to Circular Quay. The Harbour Bridge dominates the scene despite the presence of a massive cruise liner. The Opera House was different to what I expected. A series of buildings rather than one and beige in colour as opposed to white. We had a drink in the Opera House bar and watched Sydneys beautiful people strutt their stuff. Got an Uber home (feet aching a bit). Made some smoked trout bruchettas to go with a bottle of Bolly that Lisa had been keeping and Dave fired up the Barbie.Read more
