This Is Our Story

Welcome to my personal experiences of exploring Sydney. I am a retired film maker.  During my 47-year career, I worked on TV commercials, documentaries, corporate and educational videos.

Four years ago my wife and I decided it was time to get out and really have a good look at our beautiful city, rather than catch glimpses of it as we passed by in the car. We have completed over 200 walks all around the city and suburbs, with many more to come. In addition, I go on cycling trips with friends and have been on about 170 trips.
Of course I have taken a lot of videos and photographs. 

This website is not a comprehensive guide, but rather a starting point to plan your own self-guided walk or cycle. Each trip has a description, map and video, giving you a visual impression.
Be open, be spontaneous and have fun. It's a great adventure and around every corner there is something new to astound you.

The guide is divided into 5 groups:
Inner City and West: Eastern Suburbs; North Shore; Northern Beaches.  

Have a great time in our beautiful city.

For film makers I have a vast library of High Definition Stock Footage
that can be used in commercials, documentaries, corporate videos or any
film you are producing.
