Cycling down to Kiama

A few weeks ago I went with Span on a cycling trip from Macquarie to Kiama.

This is a great trip, you catch the train to Macquarie for the start then ride through beautiful rolling hills to the Robertson Hotel for the night. Actually those hills tended to roll far more up than down, but it meant dinner was really appreciated!


Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour’s Working History

On the weekend I joined up with a photographic shoot with the Sydney photography forum group on Cockatoo Island.
