The first time I came to Sydney, in the late 1990s, Paul Gilding took me out to Manly on the ferry – a trip we repeated today. First, though, we went across to have breakfast with Ian Kiernan at the Garfish restaurant, Broughton Street, Kirribilli, on the other side of the Harbour Bridge. He brought along Terri-Ann Johnson, his CEO at Clean Up Australia. We then went back to his house, just around the corner, where I did a brief filmed interview.
Stumbled across the bow section of HMAS Sydney, which I knew as the ship that in 1914 tracked down the WWI German raider SMS Emden. Then off we went, by ferry, to Manly – where I will let the pictures speak for themselves, though we also had a delightful lunch at Le Kiosk at Shelly Beach.
