Fiona thought a trike transfer to Q Station would be the way to go. She was going to stay at Q Station and what a great experience to start a fun time.
the infamous Kings Cross
Craig picked Fiona up from in the city. Firstly, they rode down the major thoroughfare of William Street. This leads up into the infamous Kings Cross – home of the famous and huge Coca Cola sign. It is also home to nightclubs and ladies of the night though it is not nearly as raunchy as it was in the 1970s (apparently). This road leads through Potts Point and down to Woolloomooloo, an inner eastern suburb of Sydney.
Riding past Finger Wharf and the iconic Harry’s Café De Wheels is always interesting. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more. Next, they rode to Mrs Macquarie’s Point. home of Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. From here there is a gorgeous view looking towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Mrs Macquarie’s Point is a peninsula which was named in 1810 after Elizabeth, Governor Macquarie’s wife. She ordered a seat to be chiselled into the rock from which she could view the harbour. Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, as it’s known, is still there today. It’s in the Domain but is effectively an extension of the Botanic Gardens.
Iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge
For instance, a great part of our rides is the flyover on to the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Look up we always tell our passengers, enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.
Next, after riding across the Harbour Bridge they rode past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia. After that, they rode around the corner to Jeffrey Street Wharf. From here, the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge.
The Kirribilli Loop
Following the road, they rode under the north side of the bridge and continued on their tour. The underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge – is very interesting. The Kirribilli Loop was finished by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool.
They continued riding on through Cremorne, Mosman and down past the Taronga Zoo to Bradleys Head. Make sure you look for the koalas eating and sleeping in the gum trees. Posh Balmoral Beach is a favourite of Sydneysiders and worth a look. After that, they rode through the back streets before crossing the Spit Bridge, this is always fun. The lovely views of Middle Harbour and hundreds of yachts are hard to forget. Through Seaforth, Balgowlah and Manly. However, the 1.5 hours was almost up so Craig dropped Fiona off at Q Station.
Q Station Manly
Interestingly, Q Station Manly has the haunting past of an Australian quarantine station. Before air traffic, maritime quarantine was the first defence against infectious diseases, including the Spanish flu. In conclusion, Fiona thought the trike transfer to Q Station was a lot of fun and well worth doing. https://www.qstation.com.au/
