Angus describes Sydney scenery

The colonial visitor Angas often catches a steamboat from Circular Quay to the North Shore and writes, ‘One is soon transported to the secluded and picturesque scenery on the opposite shore, where the pathways leading through the bush are garnished with wild flowers, and the hills may be said to resemble, at this time of the year, one vast flower-garden.’
