Sydney Harbour Surfing

As an East Coast low brought flooding to the North of New South Wales, Sydney woke up to a grey wet and windy day for the start of another Summer weekend. Most Sydneysiders were cancelling outdoor plans, choosing instead to stay at home or head to cafes and shopping centres for their Saturday morning.

Meanwhile, surfers were heading out to enjoy some hefty swells and big waves. As a result of the weather system, waves were presenting well inside Sydney Harbour. At this location in the Eastern Suburbs, dozens of surfers crowded the break just off rocks. To the backdrop of Sydney’s city skyline, several spectators braving the weather enjoyed a fantastic view from nearby clifftops.

Davidson Rural Fire Brigade Christmas Lights

Borgnis Street in Davidson is very well known for Christmas spirit. Some 18 years ago a handful of residents began decorating their homes with sparkling lights for the Christmas period. In more recent times, the entire street has become involved with vivid displays, attracting tens of thousands of visitors each year.

Davidson Rural Fire Brigade’s station is located at the entry to the street and has participated in the display for a number of years. The volunteer firefighters decorate the fire station with with a light display and each night in the lead up to Christmas, open the fire station to allow children to climb through the fire truck. Bush fire safety information is also provided to visitors and fundraising is conducted.

Rotary volunteers work with residents on the street to raise funds for Manly children’s hospice Bear Cottage

I was in attendance a week before Christmas this year to capture the excitement. Unfortunately the Brigade’s main tanker was called away to reports of a bush fire. After investigating the reports the tanker returned to continue the fun – the call was deemed a false alarm.

Firefighters are in attendance every night until Christmas, including Christmas Eve. Get along and meet them.
