October Update

I can’t believe I haven’t blog much during the month of October and the month is already over. As you know, I have mentioned AS’s uncle and his family were visiting Australia from Nepal. Due to that reason, we were doing many touristy things and were busy. Here is how my weeks have been for the last few weeks.

Sculpture by the sea

Like every year, we went to Sculpture by the Sea but this time we went with visitors. I love Sculpture by the Sea – intriguing, whimsical, inspiring and challenging exhibits set against the stunning backdrop of Sydney Harbour, along the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk.

The exhibition has certainly come a long way since it was established in 1997 by a group of volunteers with no funding. This year there were 109 exhibits from 16 countries.

Everyone loved the walk and the day was just perfect to spend 3 hours walking by the coast in the beautiful breeze.

We took heaps of photos during the visit. Also, check out the stunning shots on the Sculpture by the Sea website and on their social media pages Facebook Twitter and Instagram.

The Sydney Tower Eye

I think any visitor on Sydney’s tour won’t be done until they visit the Sydney Tower so we made sure our guests were able to enjoy the tower too.

Sydney Tower is Sydney’s tallest structure, it is also the second tallest observation tower in the Southern Hemisphere (after Auckland’s Sky Tower, though Sydney Tower Eye’s main observation deck is almost 50 m (164 ft) higher than that of Auckland’s Sky Tower).The Sydney Tower Eye has been an integral part of the Sydney skyline. It features attractions such as Skywalk, Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck, 4D Cinema and more.

We enjoyed the movie and it is a good addition to the tower experience. It is more aimed at tourists than locals but it is a nice one. There is no seating in the cinema so everyone has to stand on a podium.. The movie has spectacular footage that transports you across Sydney Harbour and takes you through the city’s iconic landmarks and important events.

The observation deck has tall windows without anything obscuring their view. From the window, we could see the Blue Mountains, the spectacular shoreline of the Harbour, bustling Sydney Airport, Botany Bay and more.

Manly beach

Manly Beach is a popular tourist destination located on the North Shore of Sydney it has an extensive coastline with several beaches doted along its length and panoramic views back to toward the city from North Head National Park.

Melbourne cup

The Melbourne Cup is Australia’s major thoroughbred horse race. Marketed as “the race that stops a nation”, it is a 3,200 metre race for three-year-olds and over. Please read my previous post for more details about the day.

Like every year, me and AS got dresses up for the big day. This year I went with the fascinator in orange with matching accessories and a black dress. AS was looking dashing in his black assembly with a silver tie 🙂 . We had sweeps at work and for the first time, I won some money in Melbourne cup. My horse came second giving me something to celebrate.

Take care,

  1. What a busy month! Looks like so much fun! Xo

  2. Sculpture by the sea sounds like my kind of event! Congrats too on winning a little with the races. 🙂 I was in AU at the time many years ago and was amazed how the race really did seem to shut the country down. 🙂 Happy November!
