If you’ve ever walked along New York’s High Line, and played around with the Lego field, or sneaked a peek through apartment windows (guilty as charged), then the Sydney Goods Line is going to absolutely be your cup of tea.
Offering day celebration near towards mid month, the award winning urban planning team is inviting you to wow over the stunning Goods Line path. Connecting Central and Railway Square with Darling Harbour, the Line has proven to be so much more than a strolling A to B scenic trot or daily commute to work.
From 9am – 4pm on the 11th, there will be music, entertainment, educational talks, demonstrations, fitness (no yoga mat or TRX suspensions needed) and games galore. The Line opened in 2015 and has bought in hundreds of thousands of visitors weekly to adore the views. On the big day, cheer on table tennis competitions, build a cardboard city, caffeine yourself to the hilt with coffee tastings and learn about educational tours. You can design your ideal city (ours would be Willy Wonka themed, just so you know), thrive off botanical tours and grab food from the Powerhouse Museum’s Junction Café or snack on street (truck) food.
As part of the Sydney Design Festival 2016, if you’ve never strolled along the Line in either NYC or Sydney, this is a day to mark in your calendar. It’s free, it’s going to be fabulous and it’ll get those leg muscles into gear. Remember to #sdf16 when you’re tweeting @syddes during the day. And take pics to tweet us at Cremorne Point Manor so we can RT out in support!
Only 14 minutes by car or 45 minutes with buses and a gorgeous ferry ride across the Harbour, you’ll be right back at Cremorne Point and our Manor. Stop off at Circular Quay during the trip and walk around the Opera House. If you have no fear of heights, you’ve got to take the Bridge climb.
Since you’ll still be in high gear, the next day check out Wendy Whiteleys Secret Gardens, take a dip in the famous Maccallum Pool or spend a brilliant one hour walk to our sister hotel, Glenferrie Lodge, in achingly hip Kirribilli. It’s located on the same street as the Prime Minister’s residence and near Admiralty House.
Isn’t it obvious that this blog post’s theme is all about the adrenaline rush or one foot in front of the other and increasing your stamina? Don’t thank us…thank Goods Line for their generous freebie gesture!
