What’s in Watson’s Bay?

To be quite truthful, The answer is : Not much! It’s said to be one of the oldest fishermen villages in Sydney, & with only a short ride on the ferry you are there in no time. The ambiance is content, it has definately a small town feeling. There is something amazing but the feeling […]

They also make a mean chockie milkshake. You’ll see lots of old Italian men sitting on the squat little wooden stools outside smoking and eyeing off the ladies! As […]

Sydney wine & dine

Last night we went out on the town to experience a little of what Sydney has to offer. We were definately not disappointed. Our first stop was to Palmer & co. As soon as you step off the cobbled side alley through the doors you are transported to The Gatsby era. Waiters are dressed in […]
