Photos - Sydney North (continued)

McMahons Point

This ship doesn’t carry many passengers these days. It lives beside the North Sydney Circle Walk, at Sawmillers Reserve, McMahons Point.


Milsons Point

At the bottom of Alfred Street, Milsons Point, is a footpath under the harbour bridge. It’s popular with photographers.

Milsons Point

What is almost directly under the pylon behind Alan? The other crossing of Sydney Harbour, namely the harbour tunnel.

See this tangle of Luna Park rides above you when you do the boardwalk from Bay View Street, McMahons Point, to Alfred Street South, Milsons Point.


Milsons Point

Six million, some of which we can see at Alfred Street South, Milsons Point. Hand me the spanner, please, so I can take one as a souvenir.

Naremburn

Just like Moses parting the sea, the red-squared post parts house and cars as it leads its red-circled followers to the promised land, Henry Lane, Naremburn.


Naremburn

naremburn-stained-glass-n.jpg

Away from the main roads, most of Naremburn is a brilliantly-preserved oasis for houses of Alan’s age. Stained-glass windows feature on most of them.


Narrabeen

Many Narrabeen houses are only a couple of metres above the level of its famous lakes. For sufferers of aquaphobia, there is an alternative: Lindley Avenue, Narrabeen.
