Posts Tagged ‘What to do in Sydney this weekend’

Free public transport in Sydney over Easter, so we took the chance to travel on the light rail from Circular Quay to Randwick, then back towards central to go to Reuben Hills cafe for a coffee and cake.

Look, it can’t always be about alcohol!

So this weekend we visited a local artisan French baker in Ryde.

Coco Cannelle in North Ryde.

Just like being in France, and if the queue out the door to buy on a Saturday morning is any indication, everything they have here is pretty special!

So this weekend we revisited beautiful Bath.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t find the gorgeous Royal Crescent, that row of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent.

We’ll have to look harder next time we visit.

We decided to stay in France this weekend, and re-visited lovely Avignon.

Hunters Hill in spring and the Jacarandas are out. Just beautiful.

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.

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.

A great walk through another part of Terrys Creek through Eastwood.

There’s a path connecting Fred Spurway Reserve and James Hoskin Reserve and Kilpack Park (The Ponds Creek.)

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.

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!
