  Mosman Bay, great place for a walk
by iandsmith

This is taken on the walk from Cremorne Point (officially Robertsons Point) to Mosman Bay. To the right and virtually impossible to see these days (due to plant growth) is an old quarry from whence much of the sandstone used in 19th century buildings came from. The stone itself is also easily viewed today as it forms that attractive wall running from the Opera House around to the Botanic Gardens.
As you can also see in the photo, like any other walk in Sydney, you'll come across many nationalites and cultures during your stroll which adds even more colour to the experience.
