more walking about Newcastle Harbour, N.S.W.

apartments overlooking the harbour

355 tons of Svitza Ginga (2006 Indonesian build) takes the lead







...by lunchtime the seats outside the restaurants along Queens Wharf will be filled.  Are you up to walking the 40m stairwell inside the Observation Tower?  There is also, access via this Tower, into a quaint walkway to the Hunter St mall.

made me think of a whale skeleton;  I wonder did the architect have this in mind....



The view across to Nobbys Headland and light-house, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean on the opposite side to this photo.   From the gate at bottom of pathway, it's a 220 m. up-hill walk climb, to the Signal Master's Cottage.  If you've already walked climbed up the Observation Tower, maybe give this one a miss?


Did you miss the first part of this walk?  It's here on "arriving at your destination"

Beautiful photos Carole.
Lovely walk, I think you have a wonderful view at photo 1 and 8 and 9.

Nice photos! That really does remind one of whale skeleton. So pretty there.

Oooh, nice buildings, and very great the runway down to water, but, tell me, how do get back up?

I would love to live in one of those apartments overlooking the harbor! It would be fun to take the twilight dinner cruise around the harbor too.
Thanks for sharing your part of the world, Carole

Jan: "is it time for a cup of tea yet?" you asked. Remember in the first post that started the walk - just scroll down to it (arriving at your destination), that was how it started with that vital caffeine-fix before anything else :).

The spire looks like our Washington monument with branches.

Thanks for the walk through Newcastle. Its changed since I visited my boyfriend there in 1959. Interesting tree sculpture.
