#sydney: Darling Harbour Playground

(a sketch of part of the playgound)

On 4 May 1988, HRH Queen Elizabeth II formally opened Darling Harbour. Sydney Aquarium was the first attraction to open and was soon followed by a host of museums, shops, restaurants, hotels and bars, as the precinct became a different kind of heartbeat for Sydney.

There should be many people in the sketch, believe me. I am jut not keen enough to learn to draw human object :-).

It was a sunday afternoon at the Darling Harbour playground with #Billa.

One of the interesting thing about this playground is it has a miniature of child-friendly irrigation system, where you can play with the water, store it in a reservoir, you can pump it, make it to move a water mill. All in mini size.

But #Billa by the way, was more interested to play in the sand pit :-).


About the author

My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behavior, especially its interaction with surface water. I use open source apps like R and Python to do the job. In my spare time, I also have a side project to promote open science in Indonesia's research workflow. One of my current focus is promoting INARxiv, as the first preprint server of Indonesia (osf.io/preprints/inarxiv) and serving as ORCID and OSF (osf.io) ambassador. Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming. Blog: dasaptaerwin.net, derwinirawan.wordpress.com. (https://orcid.org/0000-0002-1526-0863)
