12499248_10206116790019105_481379276_oOn a recent trip to Sydney, I discovered these Butler steps. The city is very hilly and I can appreciate how fit you must be to walk around. We stayed at Woolloomooloo just at the historic Finger Wharf which is the longest timber-piled wharf in the world. Originally built for the Australian wool industry, it has accommodated war ships from both world wars as well as the influx of migrants to Australia since WW2.

The steps that I am standing on are at Potts Point and were built in the 1870’s as the link between Potts Point and the poorer area of Woolloomooloo. There are several in the area, including this one and Hills stairs (over 100 altogether) and are the reason Sydneysiders keep so fit! πŸ™‚
