It’s almost hidden now and many Sydneysiders are completely oblivious to both its significance and its location but this unassuming (and perhaps ugly) fountain is actually on the site of Sydney’s original water supply.

In a bid to shift some unwanted weight, I've registered with the "Live Life Get Active" program (thanks for the recommendation JoJo!), which are FREE group exercise classes in parks located all around Sydney (more info here) thanks to local governments a...

As I've previously mentioned, I grew up in the wonderful St George region of South Sydney. I have always felt that I was lucky to have grown up in that area; people seem to have a strong sense of community, the streets felt safe and the suburbs still maintained a wonde...

September 2017 marked the 250th birthday of John Macarthur (in case you don't remember from history class in school - he's the guy that trail blazed the Aussie wool industry, was a politician and pioneered the settlement in Australia) so what better way to celebrate so...

It's funny how you suddenly notice things out of the blue that you have walked passed hundreds of times before.

These are Australia's first bricks and you can see them for your self on the corner of Bridge & Phillip St in the city.

Over 5000 bricks were used during the t...

One of my Sydney Secret bucket list places, Regent Street station aka Mortuary Station.  I have been fascinated with the building since I was a child and am not embarrassed to say, was ridiculously excited to be finally able to walk through the gates.
