I was tooling around Woolloomooloo today and there were a fair few ships in port.    We are lucky yot have such places where we can look at the ships as they come into port.

HMAS Darwin (recently decommissioned), HMAS Brisbane (To be commissioned soon), HMAS Warramunga, HMAS Parramatta and HMAS Adelaide.

I go running there regularly, the best time is just as sun rises on a rainy morning where you can still see the sunrise rising over the ships...

Will miss it when I move at the end of the year!

Nice.

City of my birth.

Harbour of my youth.

You make me homesick.

Many fond memories of Garden Island.

Weekly running out of the heads, to make it back on a Friday for weekend leave.

Good times....Good times....

Its funny mate.  I've worked in here for nearly twenty years and still appreciate it.  Sure the traffic is crap, prices are too high and people can be arses, but the views here are spectacular

I lived in Sydney for 10 years, nice around Woolloomooloo. I lived around the Shire and in Lane Cove, though.

Always had a fascination for ports. I grew up in Hamburg and the Hamburg WoWS port makes me a little homesick.

I love Australian names. Where else could you find a name with 8 o’s in it?
