Prue rang us to talk about our trike tours. She wanted to buy trike tour Christmas presents for her son, daughter-in-law and her three grandchildren. Gift Vouchers were arranged for each person for Christmas. Then, after the Christmas busyness calmed down Prue contacted us to organise the trike tours.
lower north shore
Our trike riders Brian and Craig, picked them up from their home on the lower north shore. Firstly, they rode through the lower north shore suburbs of Mosman, Cremorne and Kirribilli.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Next, they headed over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Riding over the Sydney Harbour Bridge is always fun. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.
Woolloomooloo and Mrs Macquarie’s Point
Then they rode to Woolloomooloo before heading to Mrs Macquarie’s Point. Woolloomooloo is home to Finger Wharf and the iconic Harry’s Café De Wheels. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more.
Mrs Macquarie’s Point is 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. So far, the trike tour Christmas presents are (and continued to be) the best Christmas presents ever!
After that they rode down Macquarie Street. Macquarie Street is the location of the main governmental institutions of NSW: Parliament House, Government House, and the Law Courts Building (which houses the Supreme Court of NSW). It also is some to many specialist doctors.
However, the hour was almost up so they rode into the Rocks before heading back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Stopping at Jeffrey’s Street wharf for some photos is always a hit. The view 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
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.
Now time was up, so they rode back to the passenger’s home and dropped them off. In conclusion, the trike tour Christmas presents was the best ever Christmas present!
