In January, we took a short weekend vacation to visiting the South Coast, Jervis Bay in particular, which is located at the southern end - Booderee National Park. The area is a coastal paradise in the Shoalhaven region.
We took the scenic route of the Grand Pacific Driveway from Sydney to the Shoalhaven area. The route starts in the Royal National Park and continues for 140 kilometre as scenic coastal drive through rainforests, over the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge and through the coastal cities and townships of Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama.
We used the GoPro mounted on the car's windshield to capture the scenic drive over the 665 metre Sea Cliff Bridge--a highlight along the Grand Pacific Drive.
We admired the brave (foolhardy) young blokes jumping into the Kiama Blowhole. We were told that, with the right sea conditions, it can shoot water up to 25 metres in the air.
We stopped at the Two Figs Winery to purchase some of the excellent wines from the region.
The girls and I were snorkelling at Callala Beach and we enjoyed the local seafood as well as the relaxing atmosphere.
At the beach, we found dried shark eggs.
We finished the trip with a short stop at the Seven Mile Beach National Park located between between Kiama and Nowra.
And had lunch at the harbourfront Seafood Restaurant in Wollongong prior to driving back to Sydney.
