Happy New Year 2012!!!

This year we have been thinking to go to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, Sydney to see the firework. Apparently this spot is the most popular to watch the firework and crowds camped from Friday evening (30th of jan 2011) to score the best spots.

Firstly we’re a bit concerned of the transport. My sister dropped us in Domayne, and she parked her car in this private carpark building for only $10 (which is a bargain, as the building next door charge $25).
After she dropped us off in Domayne, we have to queued for about 45 mins - 1 hour under the sun. The queue is quit slow (but gradually moving) as they security checked each person’s bag to make sure no one bring opened bottled drink, or alcohol (there’s an alcohol ban).  It can a be daunting task to queu for that long under the heat & in the same time bringing all your picnic gears; tents, food, drink etc. As it’s 5 of us we took turn on who should be in queue. Mum waited comfortably in one spot near the entrance with most of our belonging, so it wasn’t too bad.

As we entered the park, we’re glad that they sell cappuccinos, ice cream, hotdogs, burgers, softdrink, and alcohol inside (if only we knew earlier, we won’t bring too many mineral water bottled).  Anyhow the firework show definitely worth waiting!!!
