SYDNEY’S AUSTRALIA DAY PARTY – hot, hoppy and happy

Darling Harbour, Sydney. Rick Everett (kangaroo on right) has plenty of spring left, even after all the energy he put into Snow on Mars. But a good party needs good bouncers.

I took the bike for a loop around Sydney on Australia Day – through the kids’ concert at Darling Harbour, past the Opera House where the ferries were churning the water, up to the picnics at Hyde Park, and finally back to Enmore Park for the citizenship ceremony and the food fair. Not a hint of trouble anywhere – everybody busy and happy, though the temperature was over 40 degrees.

Picnics under the Hyde Park trees...


...and a dip in Mr Archbold's famous fountain.

I’m pleased to report there were no flag-draped yobs to be seen. No harassment of anybody. No drunks. Just a good party, with everybody welcome.

    40 degrees is hotter than it was here in Brisbane. I didn’t see any drunken yobs here either – excellent.
