Sydney : Newtown graffiti

Standard

Newtown is probably our favourite Sydney suburb, it’s got a great vibe and it’s almost a bit Londony. I know I made that word up, but it’s as close as Sydney gets to having that kind of London vibe, it’s full of students and a bit alternative. It’s pretty trendy; lots of coffee shops, bars,…

Sydney : Balls Head Reserve

I’ve been coming to Sydney for years, riding the North Shore Line into the city and always passing through Waverton, wondering about Balls head. They have  this lovely Victorian signage “Alight here for beautiful Balls Head”. It’s one of those things when, you have plenty of time in a place, and you know you’ll come…
