On 16 October 2018, our greeter Mark met with Katia from Berlin on her first day in Sydney. Katia had previously experienced a greet in New York and had found it a very good way of getting the local feel of a city.
They caught a ferry from Pyrmont Bay to Watsons Bay. With a route that stops at Barangaroo, Balmain East, McMahons Point, Milsons Point, Circular Quay and Rose Bay, this ferry trip provides a great tour of the Harbour. Upon arriving at Watsons Bay, they followed the loop track of the South Head Heritage Trail up to the Hornby Lighthouse and the spectacular sea cliffs that offer great views across to Middle Head and North Head. They then had fish and chips for lunch at Doyle’s Takeaway on the Watson Bay wharf before catching a bus out to Bondi Beach. They ended their Bondi visit with a coffee at the Icebergs, taking in the sweeping views north back up the beach.
They then caught a bus heading back to the city. The greet finished at Paddington where Katia left the bus to explore some of the great examples of Victorian architecture – particularly the terrace houses – for which the area is renowned.
