The different parts of the service were clearly explained and the preaching was very relatable. I enjoyed the way communion was done.

We happened upon this beautiful church while walking the Corso. Seems whenever we see a church on our travels, we always stop for a pic. We didn't have time to step inside but it caught our attention.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
