#SNAP SYDNEY 16 NOV 2016
Mike's top spot to wow visitors
What the PM does to relax
A PHOTOGRAPH shot from the Prime Minister’s kayak on his phone sums up Malcolm Turnbull’s love for Sydney — and he wants to share it with everyone.
Leading the charge of politicians supporting #SnapSydney on Wednesday, November 16 this year, Mr Turnbull said showing off our gorgeous city is one of the joys of hosting national and international visitors.
“I take them on the harbour ... I take them on the walk from Bondi to Bronte or on the Hermitage walk out to Nielsen Park, it’s beautiful,” Mr Turnbull said.
“I’ve got two favourite pastimes — paddling my kayak, often with Lucy, and walking with Lucy. I love paddling with her and walking around our beautiful city.”
He recently invited New Zealand PM John Key to join him on the water.
State Premier Mike Baird, an enthusiastic surfer, is also an ardent supporter of #SnapSydney, a community event designed to bring Sydneysiders together.
The waves, sunshine and food made Sydney great, Mr Baird said.
He also revealed his most special Sydney spot, which he shared with the mayor of Bethlehem when she visited Manly.
“She took me to the birthplace of Christ when I visited Bethlehem. I thought, ‘heavens how can I compete with that?’,” Mr Baird said.
“I took her for a walk along Manly Beach, and right up on North Head there’s a lookout which I think is one of the most spectacular views in the world.
“She took my breath away where she took me in Bethlehem; I took her breath away up there at North Head.”
