Sydney harbour (Circular Quay, and Darling harbour) is a wondrous collection of fabulous architecture, gorgeous waterside cafes, stunning boats, beautiful people, and an atmosphere that is teeming with life, energy and magnificent weather. One of the most exciting cities in the world.
Amongst this heaven are examples of railway sleeper and natural timber landscaping. Big slabs of hardwood weathering in the sun. Harbour decking that has aged over decades. Massive hunky benches that will season, crack and fade over decades of Tourist use.
Although some of these mouth watering photos depict settings that are on a large scale, there are certainly ideas and projects that could be transferred from these into a smaller garden creation, including sleeper benches and decking areas.
