It’s January 2018. For much of the world this is a cold time of the year but for those of us on the bottom half, it is summer or wet season, depending on how close or far you are from the equator. Now with the holiday seasons out of the way and a holiday from blogging, it’s time to get stuck into it so where is best to start the new year but somewhere I know for real…
Sydney is my city of birth so I decided to spend some time relaxing inworld at Sydney and Bondi Beach regions inworld. It has been a long time since I have visited here as it this was very new at the time.
I can’t remember what Sydney looked when it opened in Second Life but I am happy with almost all of what I see. The inclusion of iconic sites has me feeling like I am at home. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is better than I thought it would be and the Australia Square Building is a must for any inworld Sydney build. Alterations of what’s real and what are rather interesting like Circular Quay where there is a display of Australian cars, minus the British Ford Cortina. The details of Australian cars has me very impressed.
I found a lovely place to lay down and relax at Circular Quay with the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, as towers of North Sydney stand proud in the background. This Holden V8 ute was rather comfy to lay on to rest my poor feet from all the walking along Sydney streets.
Now, there are several venues to dance your feet away so I would recommend you join Sydney’s local group ‘Sydney City, Australia’ to be in the loop of what’s hot. There’s also shopping for clothing and other items.
“Welcome to one of the best groups in Second Life! We enjoy all the great things in virtual Sydney and Bondi Beach including the best events featuring original talent acts entertainment, surfing, shopping and awesome events!”

I experienced nostalgia plus at the ferry terminal which is located at Circular Quay in real world of Sydney. Blue and white transport colours is old hat now and the hydrofoil is long retired but it was awesome to see it. They cut the length of the trip between Sydney and Manly by half. I personally prefer the large ferries.
There are two regions for Sydney and Bondi Beach. Sydney does have Luna Park with the crazy clown face to walk through its mouth but it looks like a dance venue. I’m not sure how they work it but it does look posh.
Bondi Beach is set up with the iconic building at the beach. There are sunbeds to lay out on your own or with a friend. Seschmet joined me to relax at Bondi Beach. We didn’t use the water floaties but rested on one of the many sunbeds.
I do have one personal criticism of Bondi Beach and that’s the dead shark hanging on the beach. Killing sharks as a sport no longer pleases most of us and we are mostly against shark nets so I was disappointed to see a dead shark hanging for all to see like some sports trophy.
We sat outside the pizza shop which has a dine in table set up inside and this outdoor garden furniture which needs adjusting for seating and photo comfort.
Bondi Beach has beautiful big waves however you can’t rez anything to enjoy the water but you can easily relax here. This area is well spread out for people to relax without getting into each others hair. Bondi Beach has a stunning presentation so why not put your togs/cosi(swimmers) on and lay out at Bondi Beach.
Don’t forget your walking shoes to explore Sydney. There are iconic buildings to admire and take your photos of.
