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.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: This video gives a small overview of Meriton Suites in Zetland in Sydney Australia. It is not really a hotel, but serviced apartments. What I have not shown here is that Meriton also has a pool in the ground floor. The Meriton is my preferred place to stay in Sydney. It is not cheap, but compared to the alternatives, especially for longer stays it is much better suited than being locked in a small hotel room.
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.

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”
