Blackwattle Bay... Amazing things about Sydney

I am sure you have gathered by now that we have a dog. His name is Ziggy-Stardust and we have had him for just over a year... and he is a spoilt brat.

As much as he is a born and bred 'lap dog', he also loves nothing more than to go for long walks. There are many parks we can go to and walks we can do around Marrickville, but often they are not leash free. We recently discovered a walk you can do leash free and has one of the most amazing views in Sydney.

Blackwattle Bay is in Glebe and the walkway snakes around Sydney harbour from the bottom of Glebe Point Road, all the way to Pyrmont.

It is a fairly new part of Sydney, before this Blackwattle Bay was quite industrial and had been abandoned for years. Along the walk there are a number of relics preserved from the site’s previous uses.

When they redeveloped Blackwattle Bay, they also build some great apartments and town houses. I love these townhouses that line the walk. I always have a snoop into the living rooms, some of them have the most amazing pieces of furniture and layouts.


There is also a great Cafe where you can stop and have a coffee and some great scones.

I really am liking this Life List challenge of showing people the amazing things about Sydney.

I hope you are too?
