Joy bought Jane a birthday present Harley ride. What a great birthday present it was!
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Jungle and Phil, our Harley riders, picked our passengers up from their hotel at Circular Quay. Firstly, they rode through the north of the city to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Of course, they rode over the iconic Harbour Bridge.
After that, they did the Kirribilli Loop. This meant they stopped at Jeffrey St Wharf for photos. Mainly, they stopped to look at the wonderful view. The view looks across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House and towards the west, to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Next they all rode along the interesting Kirribilli Loop. This takes you under the north side of the Harbour Bridge. Look up and see the underneath. A totally opposite perspective than riding across it.
Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool
They finished the loop by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. Next, they rode back over the bridge. This led them to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair.
Mrs Macquarie’s Point
Similarly, from Mrs Macquarie’s Point, near Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, there are wonderful views. Look west across Sydney Harbour towards the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.
Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross
The next place to see was Woolloomooloo and the infamous Kings Cross. The area is tamer than it was in its heyday, but is still the major nightlife area of Sydney.
However, the hour was up so our Harley riders took the passengers back to their hotel. In conclusion, the birthday present Harley ride was a huge success. http://trolltours.com.au/product/the-city-viewer/
The history of Sydney is very interesting, For instance, the Kings Cross district was Sydney’s bohemian heartland from the early decades of the 20th century. The illegal trading of alcohol, known as sly grog, was notorious in the area up until mid-century, led by rival brothel owners
