Moor Kullchar - Art Gallery Of New South Wales (NSW) Sydney.

Sara really enjoyed her visit to the Art Gallery, checking out every painting, sculpture and pottery piece. I had a lot of pleasure from seeing the paintings of some of Australia's best artists. There will have to be a return visit.

Today the Diamond Princess was in town, and there was also a ship.

'Moore Stairs' worn by time at Circular Quay, built in 1868.

Art in the road.
   Developed to withstand the demands of heavy traffic, the KORUM cover resists severe use conditions and integrates the innovation of automatic locking to an innovative anti-theft system.
 (well, there you go).

In the grounds (they need some water) of Government House (in background).

Lewis Wolfe Levy Fountain, 1889.

This is all too serious.

'Folly for Mrs Macquarie'
This sculpture by Fiona Hall has a domed roof of metal bones representing the animals that once lived in this area.

David and Amanda are in Love.
  (I wonder if they still are)

Not as busy as it was on Australia Day.

Who's your friend?

Nearly back at the ferry.

It has been a busy day.

Every good day should end with fireworks.
