Abinaya organised the Harley birthday present for herself. It’s something she has always wanted to do and now was the time to do it!
Our Harley rider Phil, picked her up at Circular Quay. Abinaya lives out of Sydney so caught the train in to the city.
Firstly, they rode through the lovely Centennial Park. 120 fields and venues, and 35+ different sports played in the Centennial Parklands. It is the largest community sports precinct in Australia! The history is also interesting: “Originally a swamp and then set aside as land for the water source for Sydney. Centennial Park was reconstructed as a public park and opened in 1888. Sir Henry Parkes’ vision was to create a ‘People’s Park’ in which the citizens of Sydney could ‘take in the air’ away from the Sydney town centre.”
Bronte Beach and Tamarama Beach
Next, they rode east to Bronte Beach and then north to the tiny but picturesque Tamarama Beach. It’s lovely to look out to the South Pacific Ocean from any of the beaches. So far, Abinaya was so happy about the Harley birthday present for herself – it is a lot of fun.
Further north they came to the famous Bondi Beach. Here they stopped for photos and why not with this view! Just to the left of this photo is the the world famous tower of the Bondi Lifeguards of the Bondi Rescue TV series. They stopped at the famous Bondi Beach for photos, when in Sydney it is one of the places you should visit. The beach is seriously nice (but not our favourite) and we usually stop near the lifeguard station, made famous by the TV series “Bondi Rescue”. Bondi Beach is one of the most visited tourist sites in Australia. Bondi Beach is recorded by the Australian Museum that Bondi means place where a fight using boondi sticks (nullas nullas or fighting sticks) took place. So far, and the whole way, the a Harley and trike tour in Sydney was a huge success.
After there, they headed west through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay. Continuing on, they rode through the infamous Kings Cross, though it has calmed down a lot since it’s heyday – 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). Next, they rode through the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomoolloo and past the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more.
However, the 1.5 hours was up so they rode past the Domain, through the city and back to Circular Quay. In conclusion, Abinaya loved the Harley birthday present for herself.
