I live in a small river community on the Hawkesbury River, north of Sydney. I have a passion for everything Sydney has to offer. The multicultural South West, the vibrant inner city and the expansive views along the coastline. I am also an amateur photographer keen to hone my skills. And so I have set myself a challenge: to explore suburban Sydney, visiting one suburb each fortnight. I photograph and write about what I see, the people I meet and what I discover.
When I feel the urge, I write about some of my other travels. There’s no advertising on this website. Restaurants or other establishments are only mentioned by name if I feel they add to my story. I am not paid by them. The tours that I write up are another story. Generally, I go on the tour as a guest of the operator, and am paid a small fee by the site that publishes the story.
I will have achieved my goal if I encourage others to follow in my footsteps and get to know more about this great city I live in. Hopefully the research that I put into each suburban discovery will make it easier for you to do so.
I’d love to hear what you think about this site. If you have a special place in your suburb that I shouldn’t miss on my travels do let me know.
By the way I have just published my first children’s picture book. I am very excited that the book, a simple story about the enviable life that children on Dangar Island lead, is now available.
