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 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.
Litchfield National Park is located about 100 km south of Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia. The park has numerous rivers, waterfalls and pools in an almost untouched unique Australian landscape. Unlike the Kakadu National Park, there are hardly any crocodile hazards and the park is much easier to reach. Visiting the park is free and numerous signs provide information about the sights, including maps. Basically, it is also possible to camp in the park at certain designated places.
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.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: A few hours before the video I arrived in Darwin/NT. Looking for some sights I talk about the first impressions of Darwin during a walk through the Charles Darwin National Park.
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.
