Cahill Bridge Walk, Sydney. February 2017

We took the bus from Saint Ignatius’ College, Riverview, having decided to walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge.  (We were not tempted to do the bridge climb  134 metres above sea level which is a different experience altogether and costs from Au$248 http://www.bridgeclimb.com/#your-arrival).

The walk start at Milsons Point station, close to  the bridge.

The New South Wales and Australian flags flying on the top.

15Continue along the path until you would see another sign pointing to the Botanic Gardens, that part of the pathway affords great views looking down onto Circular Quay, following the Cahill Expressway, including both Opera House and Harbour Bridge, but we went down towards the rocks and then made our way home from the City Centre.16
