Mrs Macquaries Chair, Sydney
Our holiday in New South Wales
From the Royal Botanic Gardens we walked around Farm Cove towards Mrs Macquaries Chair. This famous Sydney landmark is where Mrs Macquarie, the wife of an early governor of New South Wales, had a chair where she had a magnificent view of Sydney Harbour. This is now a popular tourist spot because it gives the visitor excellent views of the harbour.
Today there is constant movement on the harbour with ferries, boats, yachts and all kinds of water craft moving people around the harbour. It is a very relaxing place to just sit and watch the constant movement. Sometimes the bird watching is quite good too; back in 2000 we saw a Little Penguin chasing tiny fish in the water nearby. This time we just bought an icecream and sat watching the waves, the boats the birds and anything that took our interest.
