NielsenPark2 NielsenPark
Nielsen Park, Sydney (dusk)

  • Last Sunday a group of friends celebrated the birthday of one of us with a picnic in Nielsen Park. If you haven't been there, go during the holidays. It is a beautiful safe beach-it has a shark net- with a big park full of huge fig trees, which makes it perfect for picnics.

A couple of weeks ago I told two of our ESOL students about it and they took themselves there by public transport. From Nielsen Park they walked to Vaucluse House, visited it and continued their walk to Pasley Bay and finally Watsons Bay. They loved it and thanked me for having recommended it to them. So, if you want to see a diferent area of Sydney, get yourself a map, train /bus timetable, or drive there, and search the net for information on the park, bushwalks, Vaucluse House, etc. and ...enjoy Sydney!

While you are searching for information, see if you can answer these questions:
  1. Who runs Nielsen Park?
  2. How long is the Hermitage Foreshore walk?
  3. What facilities are there?
  4. Who runs Vaucluse House?
  5. When was it built?
  6. Who lived there?
  7. What architectural style was it built in?
  8. What can you do in a day there?
  9. How long is the walk from Nielsen Park to Watson's Bay (you can measure it in Google Earth)
