Sydney bays and beaches

Staying with friends out on the North Shore gave us the opportunity to explore some of Sydney's many and beautiful various bays and beaches.

Collins Flat Beach

Little Manly Point is now a beautiful wee park with playground and recreation facilities where folk admire the views, fish and play, I suppose. The Manly Gas Works were constructed here in 1883 and operated until 1966. There are still remnants of the industrial site, and apparently it is popular with geocachers.

Him Outdoors has never been to Bondi Beach before and, as it is one of Australia's most famous locations, he thought he should. He also didn't think he would like it, and yet he couldn't help himself. With all that sun, sand, sea and surfing, what's not to like?

  1. That vertical shot of Bondi Beach below the b&w is fantastic! All of the lines lead your eyes all over the page. And there's the sky, doing it's bit with the skytrails as well. So cool!

  2. Thanks Erika,

    I was playing with lines that weekend, can you tell? I love skytrails, both from a visual and conceptual perspective - all those possibilities heading who knows where... (well, hopefully the pilot, but you get the point!)
