Sydney and around

Another great walk after a delicious seafood meals in Sydney Fish Market. I'm going to walk back to Bathurst Street through Tumbalong Park, Darling Harbour. ^^

It's easy, just follow the street sign

found "Darling Harbour" Signboard

"Heart" of Sydney

crossed over the railway

Finally I reached Darling Harbour, Tumbalong Park. A parkland which has been designed using native Australian foliage incorporated with fountains as an urban stream.

free transportation to Harbourside Shopping Centre

In the heart of Darling Harbour, Tumbalong Park located just at the southern end of Darling Harbour, which has play equipment for the kids, gardens, fountains and sculptures, artificial streams and ponds.

Spring blooming trees at my background^^

spotted wood ducks swimming on pond

The best time to visit Sydney is in the Australian spring. The weather's fine and sunny and great for a walking tour.

walked down Liverpool Street Darling Harbour

Passionflower offers Asian exotic ice cream signature flavours such as black sesame, sticky rice, japanese green tea, durian, lychee rose, pandan, jackfruit and taro and their entire menu is absolutely mouthwatering. The eating area's really nice, and the service and presentation is great too
