Monday in Sydney

A sunny winter Monday just calls you to take a ferry ride to Cockatoo Island and join in the 18th Biennale of Sydney.

Cockatoo Island a former prison and ship yard in Sydney Harbour.  Now part of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust and a great place to visit if you love industrial sites (DH) and modern art (moi).

Tiffany Singh's wind chime installation set in the old convict  site.  We had fun running through and making music.  

My perfect idea of shelves with an industrial twist.

Not an art installation but a left over shipbuilding essential right in the middle of Sydney Harbour.


  1. Just look at that beautiful blue sky, Sandra. I'm green with envy as I look out at more grey!!
    It looks a fascinating place. All those windchimes are amazing. I'd love to run through there too. I bet it makes a fantastic noise. Thanks for sharing such a lovely day out. It's great to see places we only see on the TV.

  2. Wonderful shots ...but I had to smile over the last one because it could have been a piece of industrial art lol

  3. Beautiful Sydney how I miss you, I loved there for 16 years and never saw or went to Cockatoo island
