From there we walked up Darling Street and eventually hopped on a bus. We found an incredible little pub named "The Pub with No Name" and enjoyed some delicious Belgian beer, musels and some new friends.
Wandering the shops and attractions of Darling Street was a highlight. The old monuments, churches, pubs, piblic buildings and pretty houses with their ironwork were very interesting to behold as we strolled.
As the day drew late we walked back to the ferry; amazed as the sight of the city peeked out over the trees. We hopped aboard a ferry to Circular Quay; happy that we had explored this lovely neighborhood.
