This is 'Sydney Open' weekend conducted by the Historic Houses Trust. I have three Focus Tours: the dome of the Queen Victoria Building; the disused tunnels of Central Station; and, the Tank Stream. In between, I have a City Pass to make the most of that I can.
This is my third 'Sydney Open' so I have seen some of the buildings that are open today. It is the perennial 'travelling salesman' connundrum: the best route between desired locations. Here is my 'solution':
Judge's HouseYesterday, between heavy rain, I climbed the numerous steps and ladders to walk around the main dome of the QVB. What a way to see a city! However, no photographs. We were told no cameras were allowed the route being too steep and precipitate. However, we had no sooner started than out came all the pocket cameras and mobile phones. I did not realise that I was such a law-abiding citizen. However, one kind gentleman took my email addy and, with any luck, something will arrive during the week. In the meantime, these shots from the interior of this building showing that it is, once again, that time of year.
