Beautiful Sydney weather (25 or more in Sydney only 2 weeks out from the start of Winter. Winter seems a long way off) so we headed out late Sunday afternoon for a wander around Hunters Hill.

Our daughters went to school nearby, but once again we were surprised to find ourselves traipsing along parts of the Parramatta River we have never seen before.

Some spectacular houses along here, with a real mix of old, 60s and 70s and modern. People own the waterfront, so it’s hard to walk along the water’s edge 😦

Beautiful homes on the waterfront - these at Alexandra St Wharf (which we didn't even know existed!)

There's a good number of historic houses in the area - many would have been very simple worker's cottages back in the day.

At the foot of Mount St, just near Hunters Hill High School. There used to be fairgrounds here, and a dance hall, with picnickers arriving by ferry.
