Walking Sydney - City to St Leonards

Sean giving us instructions
I joined this meetup group some time ago but haven't managed a walk until now. I am so pleased that I finally did.

We met in Lang Park in York Street. Our fearless leader, Sean handed us each a map and a few tips and suggestions for staying safe and then we were on our way.

Our First Stop at Observatory Hill
Setting a pretty fast pace, we headed to Observatory Hill where we quickly stopped to regroup then walked over the Bridge to Kirribilli. There is a water fountain here, so a good spot to refill our water bottles.

Here is my map. The part to The Bridge is a little dodgy because of the GPS (I forgot to turn it on..doh!) but the rest is good. You can get to the Bridge numerous ways in any case.

Balls Head Reserve Coal Loader Tunnel



This is the tunnel from Balls Head Reserve toward the coal loader. It is only open on weekends. We didn't go through here on this particular walk. I took this image the next day on another walk.

If you are not with a group, I highly recommend a meal or at least a coffee at The Coal Loader Cafe before heading off.

You can vary this walk as we did the next day, parking at Waverton, getting the train to Milsons Point and walking back to Waverton station to get the car. This was 6.8k.

I thoroughly enjoyed both of these walks. 

Let me know if you have any other suggestions!

Interested in other walks? Here is my Chowder Bay walk.

Beautiful Teen Girl Portraits and Family Portrait In The Studio

Before Makeup and Hair

These sessions are a favourite because the Teens transform in front of your eyes. 

It's not just about the hair and makeup. I get guys in the studio too. It's because they have the freedom to express themselves for who they are and we have a lot of fun. 

For this shoot, we did have hair and makeup by the amazing MJ Park. We also added a Family Portrait session in at the end.
