Photos: Muscle Car Masters 2016

At the end of October I went to the annual Muscle Car Masters at Sydney Motorsport Park.

This was the first time I had attended the MCM and it was a great day out. Watching the old cars from well before my time and from my childhood was a great change from the modern Supercars that I usually watch.

Below is a small selection of photos covering the various categories and eras racing during the event.

Photos: Sculpture By The Sea 2016

In late October the annual Sculpture By The Sea Exhibition was held along Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs Coastline.

I went down late in the afternoon of the first weekend, luckily before huge swells destroyed many of the sculptures.

Below are a few photos from that day.

Happy 2017 – Sydney Fireworks from the Harbour

I was extremely fortunate to spend this New Year’s Eve on a friend’s parent’s yacht anchored in Farm Cove. This is about as close to the fireworks as you can get and my first time viewing the New Years fireworks from a boat.

The first few hours were spent waiting for the 9pm Family Fireworks and as usual they didn’t disappoint but were merely a teaser of what was to come at midnight.

NZ Winter Adventure – Part Six: Wanaka to Queenstown

Cardrona Hotel

On my final day in the South Island I drove from Wanaka to Queenstown, did some sightseeing and jumped on a plane to Auckland.

My day began at midnight where I stayed up until the clocked rolled over so I could change my flexi-time airfare to a later time in the day allowing me to see more during the day.

I chose to drive from Wanaka to Queenstown via Cromwell as the previous day I had done the faster Crown Range route (via Cardrona). Along the route I stopped at Lake Dunstan to take in the amazing scenery.
