So, when we read in the newspaper that the Wulugul Walk – The Streets of Barangaroo has just opened, we immediately marked it as the next destination for our Field Trip, as I call them.
Barangaroo is a massive redevelopment project that started a few years ago and will take a few more years to complete. Once completed, it “
of one of the city’s oldest and ugliest industrial sites into a spectacular, six-hectare headland open space for Sydneysiders and visitors to embrace and enjoy”.
That day we were blessed by the weather. Mild temperature with a slight breath of wind and the sun that was hidden by an overcast sky made our little adventure that much more enjoyable. We parked our car and went to look for the entrance. The minute we stepped onto the path, we were amazed by the number of people engaged in various activities around us: joggers, bicycles, power walkers and yoga classes. All along the path there were benches occupied by employees from nearby offices on their lunch breaks, tourists and locals – all admiring this newly created oasis of tranquillity right in the midst of the city hubbub, enjoying the harmony of the open vistas, taking photographs of the Harbour Bridge and the distant views of the Anzac Bridge, the surrounding neighbourhoods and the bustling activities on the harbour.
After a long walk along the coast we stopped at Belle’s Hot Chicken pop-up shop to feed our souls and rest our feet. You have to come here, if not for walking and sightseeing, then to taste their food. It is unbelievably delicious.
In keeping with the surrounding landscape, I chose to wear a pair of white linen Capri pants, an oversized V-neck knitted top and white Converse sneakers that I wore previously here.
As for the choice of the accessories for the day, I settled for a square Hermes scarf (a birthday gift from my loving husband) which I casually draped across my shoulders and tied into a loose knot.
