A haven for foodies


Glebe Point Road runs the full length of the spur, from near the intersection of Broadway, Parramatta Road and City Road, the 2kms down to a dead end at the water's edge that is Johnson Bay/Black Wattle Bay. The first 500m of this is awash with ethnic eateries: sprouting up to cater for the massive influx of international students to the two universities in close proximity - The University of Technology and The University of Sydney - and to the experimentation of the general student population.

Glebe Point Road is a prime example of the geographer's term "ribbon development".

Did you show this street from another angle previously...it looks a bit familiar...I like any road that has a lot of good restaurants!

Colorful place...and interesting architecture!

You make the hodge podge of shops look interesting and appealing.

I do like all the colors in this shot. I wouldn't mind sitting on one of those upstairs porches awhile to just watch the world go by!

Oh I do like this photo - love the old-time look, and the colours are great too. The old shop/buildings of yester year retain a charm and quaintness that modern ones will never have.

Great shot. This makes me miss Sydney a lot.

Very nice, I like urban landscapes very much. You could link this over at Color Carnival, don't you think?

After half an hour back through your posts I was just a bit hungry. And I have just checked what a 'ribbon development' is...

this hit "home" - i was working 1 month in Sydney and stayed in Glebe Point road...almost started to cry when i saw those beautiful pictures - the book stores - the cafes - the bakeries - the market. i used to walk down those road to the fishmarket...ah...getting "homesick" even if it was only 1 month, this city stole my heart...
