North Sydney is home to a number of Sydney's exclusive private schools, including Wenona and Sydney Church of England Grammar School (Shore). Shore has an impressive list of alumni, including Prime Minister Sir John Gorton, Hollywood actor and ladies' man, Errol Flynn, private eye and charismatic thug, Tim Bristow, bookie, Robbie Waterhouse and tennis champ, John Newcombe.
Next to Luna Park is North Sydney Olympic Pool. It would be just a nice swimming pool except for the unique view of the bridge and the sound of the trains trundling across.
Cammeray Golf Club is a lovely little course not far from Rydges. It's a par 66 (68 for women) and it is a tricky little course to do well on. The shortest hole is the third, Par 3 - it is only 100m with a steep downhill run to a tiny, well bunkered green with sharp slopes behind and to the right. Get it right and it is an easy birdie, but miss that green and it can take many, many shots.
