If you are spending some holidays in Sydney, why not get out of the city and discover the South Coast of NSW. I did a 10 day tour with my parents in 2008 and loved it. This time I did not have that much time and booked a day tour stopping at some highlights of the South Coast.
REVIEW FOR TRAVEL PLANNING ADDICTS - NSW SOUTH COAST TOUR
I selected my self and paid fully for this activity. This review is based on my experience from beginning 2014.
Tour company: Mount’n Beach Safari
Tour: South Coast Sea Cliffs
Transportation: Well we had an engine problem along the way that apparently the owner new about…so not so great
Knowledge guide: very nice guide, flexible on the itinerary to adapt to our interests
Ambiance: Good, but we were only 3
The best: the cruise in Jervis Bay
The not so good: Lunch
First stop: the famous Sea Cliff Bridge
The sea cliff bridge is actually more impressive from afar than where you are on it.
Second stop: Kiama’s Blow hole
After our morning tea at the View point of the Sea Cliff Bridge, we drove to Kiama to adimire the Blow hole. When we arrived it was not blowing at hole. I just admired the volcanic formation. But after a while it started blowing and it was impressive! However I have not been able to photograph it properly.
Lunch @ Jervis bay
We had fish and Chips at the RSL club at Huskisson before boarding our cruise. The area was really beautiful. with the beach and the peninsula closing the bay.
Cruise on Jervis Bay
The cruise was the highlight of this tour: pristine beaches, amazing cliffs and plenty of dolphins. It was so good that I did a separate post about it. check out the great coastal scenery & plenty of dolphin at Jervis bay. Here is an appetizer:
Hayes Beach and its white sand
After this great cruise, I was on a cloud. We had a brief stop at Hyams beach which is supposed to have the whitest sand in the world. I am not sure it is the whitest but it is very white.
I wanted to swim but when I saw the waves I decided against it.
See how the Jervis Bay closes in almost a circle.
Last stop after we drove through Kangaroo valley was the Fitzroy Waterfall. Not much water but a great view although it looks a lot like the blue mountains.
Have you ever seen whiter sand?
Really amazing shots! The water has a gorgeous color! I hope to visit Australia again…
