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.
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.
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.
This is the uncut real-time recording of a cycling tour from Zetland/Sydney to Bundeena around Botany Bay, including the ferry crossing and a walk to some Aboriginal rock engravings in the Royal National Park in March 2019.
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”
