Because of my more or less regular stays in Sydney we decided this year to spend our annual vacation in Australia. The plan was that M. would first come to Sydney and then we would fly to Western Australia, rent a car there and then buy some equipment from a friend and finally go somewhere. Until the evening before the trip we really didn’t know where we were going. I had already arrived in Sydney two days before with Air China and M. arrived on Sunday with Emirates. My flight was really cheap and quite empty. At M. the flight was full and expensive. All in all we completed two times Sydney and in between Western Australia with 6100 km in the car. The route there went from Perth to Coogee, Rottnest, then north, Shark Bay, Coral Bay, Karijini National Park and via Newman back to Meekatharra and Kalgoorlie. While Sydney is almost always very relaxed by the climate, Western Australia was riddled with adversities. But that’s what it’s all about.

The hiking trail from Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach is the most famous and probably most beautiful trail in Sydney. The trail runs all the time along the coast with steep cliffs and several beaches. Especially in summer the trail is a very popular destination for tourists but also for local joggers. The way is extremely well developed and in short distances there are benches, drinking water places, sports equipment and other things. The trail offers spectacular views of the coast, beaches, surfers in the water, and if you are lucky, dolphins and whales. Another highlight is the path at the cemetery. You should make the short detour through the cemetery and look at the old graves in the unique landscape.

I had booked an apartment for us in the Meriton Suites Zetland in Sydney, actually the same apartment I always had. On the 22nd floor with a view to the Blue Mountains.Continue reading “🇦🇺 2017 Western Australia – Day 1 – Sydney”
Due to the jet lag we made our way to Newtown quite early. Newtown is the hip scene district in Sydney with many bars and strange shops. We decided to go there by taxi because the district is not easily accessible by public transport.Continue reading “🇦🇺 2017 Western Australia – Day 2 – Sydney”
Somehow I could not find any pictures of the third day in Sydney and also of the fourth day none. Probably there were no pictures. On the third day in Sydney we had met at the university for lunch with the group.Continue reading “🇦🇺 2017 Western Australia – Day 3 – Rottnest Island”
