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,

Sculpture by the sea 2013

Like every year, hubby and I decided to go for a walk to see sculpture by the sea. However, this year, we decided to go for a sunrise instead of in the afternoon.

The night before, we went to bed early to wake up at 4.00am. AS woke up and tried to wake me up but I couldn’t. Instead, I woke up at 5 am and realise that we are goona miss the sunrise. Anyway, we got ready and reached Bondi beach. I thought it would be easy to get parking so early in the morning but to our dismay, we have to park farther away from the beach as we couldn’t find one nearby.

When we got there we realise that it was so cloudy, the sun had decided to hide behind the clouds so even though we had been there at 5:40am, we would still have missed the sunrise. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the walk. I’m sharing some of the photos from the day.

Sculpture by the Sea is staged along the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk. The coastal walk begins at the bottom of Notts Avenue, which runs off Campbell Parade, Bondi. The coastal walk can also be accessed by stairs at various points along the exhibition route at Hunter Park, Gaerloch Avenue and Pacific Avenue.

Sculpture by the sea

Each spring, artists from all over the world converge on Sydney’s Bondi Beach to Tamarama coastal walk to showcase their work at Sculpture by the Sea, the world’s largest annual free-to-the-public outdoor sculpture exhibition. The scenic walk is transformed into a 2km sculpture park with more than 100 works by artists from Australia and around the world.

Sculpture by the Sea began in 1997 with an exhibition held over one day at Bondi Beach and is now an annual event.

I have been going to this event for the last few years and it is a really nice thing to do on a day off as it provides great exercise, spectacular views, beautiful arts and many photo opportunities.

Like every year, this year also, I went to this exhibition with my husband and my friend SS. This year the exhibition consisted of a variety of works from 49 New South Wales sculptors, 28 interstate artists, and 36 international artists from China, Denmark, England, Germany, Iceland, India, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Puerto Rico, South Korea, Spain, and the U.S.

Every year there are some wonderful arts on exhibit along with some weird one.

I really wanted to go this year for the sunrise but these days the sun rises at 5am so to be there at that time, I needed to wake up at 4am. On weekend, that was not a good plan so we decided to go around 8am. Unfortunately, it was a gloomy day but it wasn’t raining yet.

We started from Bondi and were surprised to see so many people already there. I saw busloads of tourist everywhere. There were also lots of family with young children.

We started of walk from the first sculpture and followed the path along the Bondi beach to the top of the hill. There were many amazing arts there and some complicated ones.

On the top of the hill, there was a tent with mini sculptures so we entered and started looking at the amazing creations. In that time, it started raining heavily and we felt lucky to be inside the tent. The rain stopped within 15 minutes.

After the rain, we continued our walk toward Tamara beach. We saw two award winning arts. It was so nice to walk the coast and finally reach the last art. Overall we had a great day and quite good exercise.

Sharing some photos from the day.
