This picture was taken from a place which is known as Mrs Macquarie's Chair, people can amaze wonderful panoramic views toward the harbour bridge and sydney opera house.

Mrs Macquarie was the wife of Major-General Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of New South Wales from 1810 to 1821. Folklore has it that she used to sit on the rock and watch for ships from Great Britain sailing into the harbour. She was known to visit the area and sit enjoying the panoramic views of the harbour.
