Sydney, home of bad traffic, tolls and ridiculous house prices. But it is all made up for by our majestic harbour. I have had the joy of working on Sydney harbour, it is a wonderful view and a busy harbour. There are always ferries, yachts, cargo ships and small sail boats from the local boat clubs making their way about on the harbour. Every now and then a massive cruise ship will be towed in or out of the harbor by some tug boat.
One thing to be careful of when working on the harbour is the weather, it can become very windy very quickly, going from very little wind to having to stop working virtually instantly. I have been told the windiness is caused due to the different temperatures on land and on water causing the sea air to move to the land air.
And if you have the opportunity to work as part of a tower crane crew on Sydney harbour here is a free tip; make sure to bring a jumper, because those winds can also be quite cold.
