Vivid Sydney 2013 is on at the moment. Each year they expand the number of buildings and things to do, and this year they have included the Harbour Bridge and Darling Harbour in the displays. Last night I started from Milsons Point and walked across the Harbour Bridge to get photos of the city and Opera House lit up.
I spent today hiking 16km from Wahroonga train station to Mt Kuring-gai station via Bobbin Head in the Ku-ring-Gai Chase National Park.
The hike starts out with a 3km walk from the station through the suburbs of Wahroonga to the start of a fire trail. It is always fun walking through an urban area with hiking boots, packs and poles. The first section of the track proper is a fire trail that runs along a ridge for a few kilometers before narrowing and dropping into a track that runs along Cockle Creek through to Bobbin Head. Along this first fire trail we encountered a very small red belly black snake that we initially all stepped over assuming to be a branch. After having lunch at Bobbin Head we then continue on the trails that run alongside Cowan Creek before climbing up to Mt Kuring-gai.
The photos below show some of the highlights of the trip.
