Mark, that is isn't fair, I lived in the apartment building overlooking Kirribilli House which is just cropped out of that photo; so the location is immediately identifiable as Kurraba

Neutral Bay is where Customs and Immigration hang out when you clear into Australia in Sydney.

Actually the Customs and Immigration guys have to come from the airport every time a small boat arrioves so it takes them a while. Ring them on the way up the harbour then do a quick first look at the Opera House and under the Harbour bridge before coming back to Neutral Bay.


OK LaurenceU, its your go

Perving out our female Prime Minister? You must be a tad desperate, but she is not married....

When did you live there?

Kurraba Point is the other headland. But if you draw a line from the edge of the Opera House thru the line of the edge of Kirribbilli Point, noting the ferry wharf, you would note that Kurraba Point is too far forward to have been the photo location.

the actual location of the boat was on one of the mooring balls of the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron in the middle of Neutral Bay, a little further north than the line of Wudyong Point.

Was your apartment in one of these blocks? (Same photo location)


Mark

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That was hard work!
Try this one. I don't think this thread has been here before. The correct name of the town/city will be what I am looking for. Lat / long will do as well.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well its not Dubrovnik because the wall is not wide enough and architecture not right. Looks British, So I am thinking Malta on the other side of Valletta the area of Pieta, Floriana 35 53.6239 N 014 29.8419 E

Don't like your Maltese Harbour .... none of the buildings match and it looks too wide ...

No it's not Malta. ... and no British influence either.

And nobody rows boats like that unless they're English. Might be up the Thames....
