The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race 1998 Tragedy

In 1998, the 115 boats competing that year raced headlong into a severe and deadly storm. Winds of up to 78 knots whipped waves to as high as 10 metres. Fifty-five yachtsmen had to be rescued, 50 of them by helicopters braving the gale-force winds. Only 44 of the 115 boats finished the course. Six sailors died.

The Blue Mountains: Lennox Bridge

At Blaxland, take a detour to Lennox Bridge. It may not look like much, but this bridge begun in 1832 by convicts and completed the following year, is Australia's oldest mainland bridge, and has certainly withstood the test the time. Designed and supervised by Scottish stonemason and Superintendent of Bridges David Lennox, the bridge was started in 1832 and completed the next year with the work of 20 selected convicts including "tolerable stone cutters", The bridge is located at Mitchells Pass about 1 kilometre off the Great Western Highway at Blaxland in the Blue Mountains.

Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras

In June 1969, in a bar in New York called the Stonewall, gay men, lesbians and transsexuals barricaded police as a protest against police raids on gay and lesbian bars. This event, resulting in what is now remembered as the Stonewall Riots, is commemorated as International Gay Solidarity Day.

In 1978, in Sydney, more than 1000 marchers were marking International Gay Solidarity Day along Oxford St, southeast of the city centre, when police revoked the march permit and 53 of the marchers were arrested in the riot that ensured. Another 100 people were arrested in later protests.

All charges were later dropped and another march was held the following year, 1979, when the name Mardi Gras was adopted......

The Blue Mountains: Norman Lindsay Gallery

It is on the way to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains that one finds, at Faulconbridge, the Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum which is operated by the National Trust. It is here that artist/writer Lindsay (1879-1969) lived most of his life and his studio has been left pretty much as it was. The main building houses a number of his paintings, watercolors, etchings, and other memorabilia, and it is always a pleasure to revisit his work. The gallery is located in grounds that are as much a sylvan retreat as an evocation of Lindsay's life and times.

The Blue Mountains

It is one of the most popular daytrips out of Sydney, particularly in the hot, sweltering summer. And it's only an hour or so away. It is the Blue Mountains -- with its spectacular rock formations, cliffs and ravines, and a wilderness you can get hopelessly lost in. From the Sydney central business district, provided you can get to the M4 freeway right away, you could be in the Blue Mountains foothills, just after Penrith, in less than an hour.
