Sydney Harbour Bridge 75th Birthday


Another special celebration!

Today we along with many many others, walked over the Sydney Harbour bridge (The coat hanger) to celebrate its 75th birthday!


We had to pre-register online what time slot we would be walking and I really thought it was going to be complete mayhem but it turned out to be such a smooth carefree 45 minute walk from North Sydney towards the city.
They gave everyone a neon green cap and it looked like a sea of green from above. Lots of media helicopters in the air, everyone was waving madly!

The clouds were gray and we thought it was going to pour down with rain but lucky for us it didnt! Its raining now but its 10.40pm so Im heading off to bed....
Sydney' Famous Arch


My favourite view of the Bridge is from Observatory Hill



After the walk we headed down to
'The Rocks' for lunch.
Some vintage beach life guards.
Love the zinc cream!

  3. Happy Birthday Bridge! I watched a fabulous doco on the bridge and saw the tunnels that weave underneath. It truly is one of Australia's man made wonders.
    Can I borrow one of your lifeguards for my Bondi boxes? lol

  8. He! He! How odd ... we had a marathon over here as well on Sunday and it starts over a bridge similar to San Francisco in California and which is closed to people, apart from these days when they close it to the traffic and people can go on it ... so the scene was similar to those photos of yours.
    We had plans to participate (walking over the bridge not running :) but in the end I wanted to put otchi-potchi live so I didn't go.
