What a beautiful spring morning for a walk from the bottom of Mowbray Road along the northern shore of the lane Cove River towards Fullers Bridge Road.

This part of the Great North Walk takes you through the historic Fairyland Pleasure Grounds, made famous by the Swan family in the 1920s. It’s an easy walk in.

The Council has done a good job of identifying what used to be there, quite extraordinary to imagine women with parasols  and man in boater hat’s and blazers picnicking and going on Ferris wheel and merry-go-round.

Plenty of historic pics here
