Great waterfront path along the stretch of Hen and Chicken Bay.

And a swim in the off leash dog park at Battersea Park.

At Clontarf, opposite The Spit, a great dog friendly beach, before fish and chips at Manly.

Great off leash fenced dog areas, a dip in the Lane Cove River, a walk along the foreshore, a lovely walk through the industrial and residential streets.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that the “Missing Link” at Barangaroo was opened, so we headed in to the city, excited to walk from Darling Harbour, past the new casino, all the way to Barangaroo Point.

Sadly, their definition of the missing link being opened and ours, differs. Some of the link is open, but until the new Metro station is completed, she’s not open.

We took this pic which is part of what’s been opened up. It’s been well done.

Blackwattle Bay

The path along the southern side of Blackwattle Bay, looking back towards the Anzac and Harbour Bridges, is a lovely walk.

Opportunities for a swim in the harbour, as well as a cafe stop along the way.

Life’s good 🙂

Cowells Lane Reserve at Dundas is an ENORMOUS off leash park, perfect for a walk for you and your dog.

There’s a creek for her to roll in and get muddy, a level (wheelchair friendly) path for walking, a fenced playground… this park has it all.

We’ve walked by a hundred times, but never actually entered.

What a mistake!

Sydney Park is huge, with heaps of off leash areas, and an interesting history.

A plane! Rarely seen in COVID-19 during 2020!



Ron Payne Park

At Nth Epping, Ron Payne Park is the old Woods Reserve.

It’s a fenced football oval that’s off leash for dogs when not in use (i.e. the entire year during COVID-19!

We had a great run on the oval, and then a nice walk around the streets.

Challinor St

So, we finally were in the Grafton area so were able to wander down Challinor St, knocking off one of the few streets left from 2018.

(I know, the spelling isn’t perfect, but the NBN site spells it with a double L, as does the sign in the other pic, as well as Google Maps. Hey, it’ll do for now.)

Lynne would feel right at home here… the gaol is just down the road hehe!


Lived in this area for years and didn’t know about this lovely little sanctuary, littered with possum boxes, bird nesting boxes and more.


Running just near the train line, opposite Sommerville Oval.
