Kylie contacted us to book a Father’s Day trike tour for her dad (and mum). She didn’t want it on actual Father’s Day as they had other celebrations planned. We organised it for today and it was a beautiful day.
Mrs Macquarie’s Point
Our trike rider Craig, met them at the pick up point in Circular Quay. We email a map and instructions of where to meet.
Firstly, they rode through the city to Mrs Macquarie’s Point, home of Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. There is a gorgeous view looking towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Interestingly, Mrs Macquarie’s Point is a peninsula which was named in 1810 after Elizabeth, Governor Macquarie’s wife. Moreover, it was easy for Elizabeth as she had convicts to do the dirty work. For instance, 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.
the infamous Kings Cross
Next, they rode past Finger Wharf and the iconic Harry’s Café De Wheels which is always interesting. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more. It is in the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomooloo. This leads up into the infamous Kings Cross – home of the famous and huge Coca Cola sign. Kings Cross is also home to nightclubs and ladies of the night though it is not nearly as raunchy as it was in the 1970s (apparently). Already, our passengers were enjoying the Father’s Day trike tour.
Watsons Bay and The Gap
Continuing on, they rode through the posh eastern suburbs of Rushcutters Bay, Double Bay, Rose Bay and Watsons Bay. Here, they stopped at “The Gap” for photos. The view towards North Head and out to the South Pacific Ocean. Watsons Bay sits on the end of the South Head peninsula.
However, the 1 hour was almost up so Craig headed back into Sydney and dropped them back at Circular Quay. In conclusion, the Father’s Day trike tour was a huge success. We love happy passengers!
