This is a long overdue travel diary from my Sydney winter trip last year. I still live by my mantra “Better Late Than Never”, so here you go! My must visit places in Sydney (Part 1).
St. Mary’s Cathedral
St. Mary’s Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Sydney and the spiritual home of Sydney’s Catholics. Its wonderful architectural features and liturgical treasures make it a truly unique heritage and a must see when you’re visiting Sydney. This was the first place that I went to, just a few hours after I landed in Sydney. A little-known fact, the current Gothic Revival style building standing is actually the second cathedral to be built on the same site.
Queen Victoria Building
Queen Victoria Building was constructed between 1893 and 1898 to provide a business environment for tailors, mercers, hairdressers, florists and coffee shops as well as showrooms and a concert hall. Today, it is still functioning as a retail complex. Walking in the building makes your mind wanders to the old time and guesses how this places looked like in the 1900s.
Darling Harbour is a large recreational and pedestrian precinct with so many attractions. I really loved walking in the area, it has so much to offer.
The view here is insanely beautiful. Everything here is like coming out of a story book. The old military outpost at Bare Island, the natural pattern on the sandstones and ocean view from the top of the cliff are all simply breathtaking.
Grounds of Alexandria
I think this is the best place to eat in Sydney. The atmosphere here is really second to none. It is perfect for taking your family for weekend brunch and browse the weekend market afterwards.
So this the 1st part of my Sydney travel diary. I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I enjoy posting it. It brings all the fond memories back! Can’t wait for you to see part 2!
