The Domain, Sydney

One of the first stop in Sydney was to the peninsula in Sydney Harbour where Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is. We were very blessed to enjoy four glorious and sunny day in Sydney and that was the best part of the trip. The weather! Haha.

This place has the best view of Opera House and Harbour Bridge. But because of the sun, my iPhone camera couldn’t take a good picture!

Please ignore the sea of red. They are the worst nightmare of any tourist. 3000 PRC tourists invading Sydney during the same period of time, photo bombing in many of your pictures. I met the worst of the worst too. I was shoved and pushed aside by one of them in Blue Mountains and one Red man also stood infront of our colleague who was trying to take a picture. We politely asked him to step aside but he ignored us. Four girls saying loudly in Mandarin, please excuse me, we are trying to take a picture. But was ignored too.

” Mrs Macquarie’s Chair (also incorrectly called Lady Macquarie’s Chair) is an exposed sandstone rock cut into the shape of a bench, on a peninsula in Sydney Harbour, hand carved by convicts from sandstone in 1810 for Governor Macquarie’s wife Elizabeth. The peninsula itself is named Mrs Macquaries Point. It is located at the end of Mrs Macquaries Road which is part of the The Domain, near the Royal Botanic Gardens. ”

Isn’t it sweet? Mr Macquarie created a bench for his wife just so she can enjoy the great view of the beach! Awww.

Even though I’ve visited this same spot two years back, I still very much enjoy the view and the air! Love it!
