Goodbye to Sydney


Photos of our last few days in Sydney

Luna Park - It was still running despite the fact that ever since we got her in August we saw continual notices that it would be closing

Plaque says: Henry Lawson 1867-1922 And of afternoon in cities, when the rain is on the land, Visions come to me of Sweeney with his bottle in his hand, With the stormy night behind him, and the pub verandah post - And I wonder why he haunts me more than any other ghost 'Sweeney' (1893) Henry Lawson was born in New South Wales of Norwegian descent.  His prose and verse provided humorous, sentimental, and tragic views of life in city and bush
Henry Lawson wrote a poem called 'Sweeney' - which is Helen's maiden name

Mrs. McQuarie's Chair - Mrs. McQuarie was the wife of an early governor, and had the convicts carve this seat out for her so she could watch the harbour
