Water is an important part of the city of Sydney’s landscape. It can be small — one of numerous small ponds and fountains to be found around the city’s walkways.
Or it could be one of the larger although still artificial lakes to be found in the Botanical gardens. These have abundant bird life and also as some children found eels constantly at the ready to nibble at fingers or any other body part offered to them.
Nothing of course can take away from the huge body of water that makes Sydney Harbour one of the best natural harbours in the world. Certainly it is the largest harbour in the world.
