Day 1 - Catch Up with Friends

A travel blog entry by kazrobaus1


Finally arrived at Central Station about 4.30 pm, 8 hours after leaving home. Our accommodation is walkable from the Country Terminal but try struggling with 30kgs of luggage uphill on a cobbled pavment. Already I am dreading carting this luggage nearly 20,000 klms around the world.

After checking in to our accommodation, we split up for a …

Bondi Beach-bum (updated)

... the bus again at Rose Bay. I thought it sounded pretty and the possibility more of a swimming area, but it wasn't really. There seemed to me, to be private beaches mostly and a small harbour, so I did a quick once around and then hopped back onto the bus to take me back to the city. I wanted to get back and shower and then I popped up the road to The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel. I had noticed it several times before seeing as it was on my route ...

... walk from Coogee Beach to the famous Bondi Beach. It's a fabulous walk and takes almost 2 hours passing various other beaches and bays on the way: Gordon's Bay, Clovelly Bay (where there are a number of outdoor bowling rinks right on the coast with great views), Bronte Beach, Tamarama Bay, and then finally you arrive at Bondi.

All these beaches looked really nice and being mid week very quiet, but Bondi was probably the ...

Big week out

... einem kurzen Blick auf die Temperaturen in Neuseeland doch behalten. Nach dem Besuch bei der Post zog es uns noch zum berühmten Bondi Beach. Eine nette große Bucht mit recht guten Wellen und unglaublich vielen Touristen, die herumliegen und sich die australische Sonne auf den Bauch scheinen lassen. Alles in allem, wir sind in Sydney viel herumspaziert und haben unzählige Fotos von der Brücke und dem Opernhaus aus verschiedensten ...

Coogee beach today

A travel blog entry by dianeandmike

Still sunny here at coogee beach. We walked from Natalie and kev's place. It is somewhat up hill and downhill too. It takes about 45 minutes if you walk normal. Mike has a $10 membership at the coogee beach legion so we are enjoying a mini beer before venturing off to the movies tonight. Hope I can stay wake for it. I included some pics of coogee and the legion. Mike treated me to a mcdonalds ice cream. 30 cents and the perfect size for me...kiddie cone. Love ...

As former residents of the area, we have regularly stayed at this hotel over the past 2 years. It is an easy walk from Central Station and with good public transport access to the city & airport. Although a little dated, the rooms and ensuites are spacious, clean, quiet and value for money. The hotel is open late and the bistro provides a variety of pub fare for lunch & dinner. A number of breakfast options are available within a short walk. Try the unnamed cafe run by an elderly chinese couple at the bus stop on the corner of Devonshire & Elizabeth Sts. Full english breakfast and good coffee for under $7 cooked exactly to your requirements. If your not 5 star travellers, then this is a good value option.
