Balls Head Reserve is a native forested headland near Waverton in Sydney’s North Shore, west of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I had been meaning to check it out as I’d heard about the incredible city views over Sydney Harbour from the Balls Head walk.
I recently found the perfect place to live – an amazing harbourview penthouse in Sydney which I love. I’m so happy here. I’ve never lived somewhere I truly love, since leaving the house I grew up in.
Every year Sydney lights up with colours for Vivid, the festival of light, music and ideas. It’s a great way to coax people out of their homes on cold (by Aussie standards) winter nights. The vibrant colours stand out against clear dark night skies.
I missed it last year as I’d migrated to warmer climes in Bali for Sydney winter. I got serious FOMO seeing everyone’s amazing photos. So this year I traipsed round the whole thing enough times to give me blisters and saw EVERYTHING.
Here’s a collection of the best bits of Vivid Sydney 2016 as seen by me.
