Once again I crossed Sydney Harbour Bridge.
But this time was different. Instead of going to the west side of the bridge like I did before, I went to the east side to Kiribilli and I was not alone! My man was in town!
Kirribilli is located at the lower north shore of Sydney Harbour and is one of the most city most established neighbourhood. Kiarabilli is Aborigin, means good fishing spot. Clearly Kirribilli is derived from this very word. Kirribilli started its major development following the completion of Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932.

It was the noon of Christmas Eve and we reached there past lunch time. Many restaurants and cafes were closed already, but I could see that this area had many eateries to offer, from seafood to meat to Italian. Everything.
We finally chose Small Bar & Kitchen, located at Fitzroy Road. It is a small cafe with quirky interior design. The cafe was quite full during our visit. This place is actually small and kind of cramp. We were seated in front of the bar and it was actually at the doorstep of the cafe already.
However, no complaint! The foods got me happy and delighted. It was goooood and worth for your money in this part of the world, I guess. For less than 20 bucks, we got our tummy satisfied.

|Those things made a great wall decoration, right?|
After we were finished with the lunch, we went to buy coffee at the only cafe which was still open which is and brought ourselves to Bradfield Park. This is neat grassy park overlooking Sydney Harbour from the north. This is a nice place to bring the kids out to play, to get a picnic gathering or just simply to lay around doing nothing. There are many shady spots in this park, so don't worry if you are afraid of the sun, you can always hide beneath Sydney Harbour Bridge.

We sat for quite some time before we decided to move down the slope towards Milsons Point, at the southern tip of this park. The walk is easy and beautiful with stony footpath, many lush trees, and sandstone fort-like canopy.

Through this park, we walked along and reached Luna Park Sydney. Luna Park is the oldest amusement park in Sydney that was constructed and operated since 1935 on 9-month season. Since 1972, the park ran all year round until a fire incident in mid 1979 that killed 6 children and 1 man. After that, the park was reconstructed.
Throughout the years, Luna Park has undergone many ups and downs but it is still standing tall and proud today. Now, there are more than 10 rides in Luna Park. Entry to the park is free, tickets are only needed to enjoy the ride.
We did not know about the free entry so we just stopped in front of the gate to take some pictures and turned back. What a waste.
