Sydney City Part 1

Staying in Meriton World Tower provided us with a good base to explore Sydney city. In this first part of the sydney city post, I will share on the walking trail that we took exploring the city's famous monuments.

Just at the junction of liverpool street, we saw a common old styled building, Sir John Young hotel, offering drinks, bar, bunk beds and double rooms.

Walking further up George Street leads us to the St Andrew Cathedral and the Sydney Town Hall

We furthered our walk through the basement of the Queen Victoria Building which led  us to the walking street @ Pitt street.

After a long walk and shopping at Pitt Street, we returned to the hotel to put our stuff. We left the hotel again and to Hyde Park to visit the Anzac Memorial

We walked past Hyde park towards the St Mary Cathedral through Cathedral Square

The St Mary Cathedral took my breath away. The interior was extremely well maintained and peaceful, the atmosphere was tranquil and very smoothing to the soul. I was captivated  by the sight and spent quite some time just sitting down and embracing what is before me.

We ventured further into the Royal Botanic Gardens

The setting sun shines towards my back, we continued deeper into the botanic gardens, hoping to reach the shore where the famous Mrs Macquarie's chair is. Upon reaching the spot, the sun was setting and we moved westwards where we were treated to the Sydney skyline

Whilst we were snapping the city landscape, towards our back were limestone cliffs which were battered hard by the sea and crashing waves, forming a deep erosion which you can sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
