Things To Do

New Years Eve – Harbour Bridge Views

The Harbour Bridge is visible from the water’s edge of the park, though the area here is quite small and would only suit a few dozen folk at most.

Nikolai Miklouho-Maclay

A Russian explorer and anthropologist who spent most of his life travelling through Australia, New Guinea and Polynesia studying people who had never met a European before. Nikoli was not able for being among the first anthropologists to refute the notion that different human ‘races’ were part of separate species. He was born in July 17, 1846 and died on April 24 1888. Wikipedia has more info.
