We are now in Kiama for a few days to have a look around. Staying at the Easts Beach Holliday Park. It is huge, but very nice indeed. The weather was so spectacular the day we arrived we decided to do the 5km walk around the headlands to the Kiama Blowhole. See photos. As the breeze was coming from the North East the main blowhole was not working, BUT what they call the little blowhole was and it was well worth the walk. Also, as we now never really have anything planned, we decided to stop off for a refreshing drink at one of the locals on the way back to the park. Enjoy the pictures.... read more

Day two of our visit to Kiama and we have decided to make the most of the fantastic weather while we can and did a round trip from Kiama to Minnamurra Rainforest walk and falls then the Illawarra Sky walk then the heritage town of Robertson then Kangaroo Valley and then back to Kiama via Nowra and Berry. What a great trip it was. Spectacular scenery and views that went on forever. We are definitely getting our exercise on this trip as in total we did approx. 7km. We thank our lucky stars we are still healthy and fit enough to do and see all these things. First up was the Minnamurra Rainforest walk. We can definitely say we are glad we paid for a two year National Parks pass as it saved us entry fees ... read more

Geo: -34.6717, 150.857Left Ulladulla at 10am, beautiful warm day and turned off first to have a look at Sussex Inlet, I took a photo from the Jetty that I walked on! We then travelled to Jervis Bay, a Marine Park for $10 it cost to take the car in it was good value. Parked the Car and Caravan and took a 15 minute walk to the beach which was beautiful with white sand and sapphire coloured water. This is a National Park and also the first place to have a nuclear powered electric sub station. It is also has the HMAS Creswell Navel College, which we could not enter. We then had lunch in the van and left to get back on the Princess Highway. We dropped in to the Fleet Air Arm Museum, in Nowra, ... read more

One of the things I am really loving about this trip is that we make plans… and then we change them. As with Ulladulla, we had planned to stay in Wollongong last night.But we made it as far as Shell Cove and I felt an insuppressible wish to stay in this area for a little while. During the drive from Jervis Bay, the scenery changed hugely – it was almost as though we had crossed some invisible landscape border. We left beautiful ruggedness behind and travelled through lush, green hilly areas with villages dotted throughout. There were still great views of the coast and beaches but it felt more refined and gentle. After checking out Shell Cove and the Killalea State Park, we headed back to Kiama where I was going to visit the Mind Body ... read more

How many times have you thought “If only I lived somewhere that has sun, sea, its own blowhole and a live jazz/blues festival every year” ? I think I might have just found the ideal place for you – Kiama, 100 miles south of Sydney. Of course, I am aware that everyone has their own blowhole, some more active than others (and some with more than one!) so what’s the big deal? Well, this blowhole belongs to everyone and it’s huge (mmm, I suppose that could be said of other blowholes too). On top of that, add a live jazz music festival, and you’ve got it made. Live jazz noodling out of every restaurant and café, day and night. It’s hard to put it into words. Perhaps some poetry: Noodle Doodle Nibbly noo. Scabba-dab-a-dibbly Yabba-dabba-doo.

Just 2 and a half hours on the train down from Sydney and you'll reach the coastal town of Kiama. I hopped of the train and immediately headed towards the famous... blow hole to discover that today, on this very rare occasion, it had decided it didn't want to blow. Well that was pretty much the reason I'd gone down to Kiama so what next? I walked around the town which is fairly old by Australian standards and looked at the old and interesting architecture. The post office and the church were my favourites but that may have just been because they were pink and yellow (respectively.) I then decided tha tit was time to see a bit more coast and it really was impressive even with the dark grey sky staring down upon it. I ... read more

Hey Leute, da ich bis jetzt ziemlich schreibfaul gewesen bin, hat sich eine Unmenge an neuen Sachen zugetragen. Ich werd des ganze ein bissl aufteilen und fange mit unserem letzten Aufenthalt des Roadtrips an, Kiama. Also, Kiama ist ein kleines Örtchen an der East Coast etwas südl. von Sydney. Als wir dort hin angelangt sind, habe ich total dringend eine Toilette aufsuchen müssen und wie es der Zufall (es gibt keinen Zufall) so mag, hat es uns zu dem schönsten Platz von der ganzen Region geführt. Falls wer Extraarbeit leisten will, ihr braucht nur Kiama und "Blowhole" in google suchen. Wir haben direkt auf einem großen Parkplatz genächtigt, auf welchem ein kleiner weißer Leuchtturm gwesn ist. Das ganze hat total den Eindruck vermittelt aus einem Bob Ross Gemälde gesprungen zu sein. Die dortige Baumallee hat sich ... read more

I felt the sand between my toes and water surrounding my feet before retreating back to the sea. The water was exceptionally cold though the sun was shining bright in the early morning. I looked down the long sand highway, which was perfectly visible in the bright weather. Without any futher thoughts i started running towards the ice cold water. After a few minutes i was eagerly awaiting my first one ever. I was so excited that my heart started to pound harder. My chest was going up and down but i needed it to be at ease for i needed to concentrate completely on the following task. Feeling the soft like surface under me where i was lying on did not gave me the feeling of lying on top of a beatifull woman nor did ... read more

This morning we went to the local market and then on to the little quaint town called Berry. We had a lovely time wandering in and out of the craft shops and had lunch at a little cafe in the Town. Steve and I went on a horse and cart ride around the Town and the old fellow who drove the horse told us a few tales about Berry. He was very interesting. We spent the afternoon lazing around at the Van park and wandering along the waterfront and the beachfront. On Sunday morning we headed home. We really enjoyed our holiday.... read more
