Cremorne Wharf

Yes it's finally open, Looks like they have taken the old sunken one and rebuilt it. Rather than a completely new one, However
it is up an running so anyone coming to stay at the cremorne point manor and planning to come by ferry, do not fear, it is back in place and running as usual, which is basically every half hour.

I was surfing for information on the point and found a Blog written by an American who has temporarily moved to Sydney, In her adventures she stumbled across the point, here is the link to her blog

SYDNEY might seem more like a security fortress than an ideal holiday destination as APEC rolls into town, but travellers have voted it the best city in the world.

A survey of 30,000 readers of luxury travel bible Conde Nast Traveller put Sydney in first spot for favourite overseas city, ahead of Paris, New York and Rome.

Australia ranked fourth in the countries category behind India, Italy and Thailand, while the Great Barrier Reef was named the 10th best island destination in the world.

Sydney, which ranked third in last year's survey, impressed travellers for being the most clean and user-friendly city as well as having the best restaurants.

"I'm delighted that readers of Conde Nast Traveller voted Sydney their favourite overseas city," editor Sarah Miller said.

"They think that it is fantastic for its friendly people but they really adore the varied cuisines on offer, with the city scoring the highest for food.

"As somebody who loves Sydney, I thoroughly endorse the readers' choice."

APEC, The alternative

This week has been rather hectic at the hotel as we are located in that space that is close enough to the city but not within it. With the impending road closures(government website link), many people are choosing to stay near the city but not having to deal with the security, protesters and the leaders. Fortunately the Ferry is still running.
