SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Many people are visiting La Perouse at the weekends. La Perouse is a small island in the south of the botany bay near cape banks. I have never been on this island because its only possible to walk around in a circle. But there is a more hidden track which goes through the bush and which us much more attractive than a walk around the island.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Botany Bay is always worth a visit. I drove with a push bike from Zetland to Botany Bay with short visits at the outer runway of the Airport.
Although I have travelled a lot in Australia, I have never had the opportunity to see anything more of the Sydney area. To close this gap, I got a rental car and drove after a journey to the west the day before in direction south along the coast. The journey went through the Royal National Park, Wollongong, Port Kembla, some smaller towns and finally to Jarvis Bay.
Although I have travelled a lot in Australia, I have never had the opportunity to see anything more of the Sydney area. To close this gap, I got a rental car and drove from Sydney west through the Blue Mountains and further south and back to Sydney. Interestingly enough, this film shows the still very small bush fire in the southwest of Sydney, which later destroyed everything in the area and tortured Sydney with smoke for weeks.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: East Point is located northwest of Darwin and is quite a large park. I was looking for some sights that are not too far away. First was a beach that was completely empty. Only one daring person ventured briefly into the water. Here also my understanding problem of Lee Point Beach cleared up, why nobody goes into the water. Between October and May is the season for Jelly Fish, also called Stingers. A contact with those in the water independently from the danger with crocodiles can lead to death. So there was nothing left but a little walk on the beach. Some locals caught fish or collected something or sat on the parking lot and drank beer.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: This video is about a walk through Manly. It starts at the ferry dock, along the main road and finally along the beach to the north. For me it was the first time that I walked to the northern end of the beach. Then I walked up a small hill and finally to another beach. This time I had no desire to tell anything. Therefore there is also no voice but only the impressions of Manly.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: On the search for further sights around Darwin I drove to the East Point. East Point is a bit north of Darwin and is a long beach. The beach was completely empty despite high temperatures in water and air, which raised some questions why. I knew about the dangers of crocodiles but nevertheless it seemed quite strange to me. Later I met a woman who explained to me that nobody actually goes into the water there, because the danger from crocodiles and especially from nettle jellyfish (stingers) is too great. Unfortunately there is an excellent beach with best equipment but no possibility to swim, although the water has almost bath tub temperature.
