Another microbrewer in Marrickville this weekend.

Batch has a couple of outlets, this one in Marrickville was their first brewery.

A constantly changing range of beers to enjoy.

No kitchen, but a pizza truck out the front on the day we visited.

Dog friendly 🙂

Sauce Brewing Co is an independent microbrewery in Sydney’s inner-west.

A great choice of different craft beers, and a lovely place to sit and enjoy a beer on a weekend afternoon.

We went there with one of our sons – he assures us he’ll shout “next time.”

Beautiful Oxford. We were last here in 2016/17. Home of the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English speaking world. And close to the more contemporary Macquarie University.

We need to get to Norfolk Island one day 🙂
Oxford’s changing. Unrecognisable to many from previous generations.

Meadowbank TAFE

Meadowbank TAFE’s main entrance is on Blaxland Road near Top Ryde Shopping Centre, but the property extends all the way down the hill. Entering from that bottom gate reveals a great place for a walk through the various TAFE areas.

Forsyth Park at Neutral Bay, in the shade of Nth Sydney CBD.

Off leash dogs allowed when there’s no sport being played.

Community garden, historic (never used) oil containers for the war effort, playground and a bush path to enjoy.

Love Sydney.

Had a lovely walk around Parramatta Park.

No off leash areas, and the cafe was closed (!) but still, a good spot for a walk.

Fitting a new muzzle lead – she’s not impressed!

Remember these? The attendant would place his foot on the lever to admit one person at a time through the turnstile.
Lovingly restored at the back of the new Parramatta Oval

Never knew Parramatta Park had so many bats!

Indie had a great romp in the fenced, off-leash dog park before we headed off for a walk.

 

There’s a great path right around the lagoon at Narrabeen on Sydney’s northern beaches.

A busy path, lots of walkers and bike riders.

7 or 8 kilometres.

Lachlan’s Line Helix Bridge

Posted: June 8, 2020 in Sydney

We’ve watched this helix pedestrian bridge take shape over the past year or so. It was built in a shed beside the M2 near Macquarie Centre and connects the new Lachlan’s Line development to Nth Ryde station.

Function doesn’t have to be boring. Love it.
