Just a few pics to share from the epic drive from North Wollongong where I live at The Writers Wrest to Wilsons Promontory, the Southernmost Tip of mainland Australia.
It’s a long drive from Wollongong in New South Wales to Wilson’s Promontory National Park in Victoria, along the coastline of Australia to pick Lucy up in her coastal town of Dalmeny the onwards across the boarder from New South Wales into Victoria. Some 900 kms, 15 hours it took us to traverse the way.
“No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has a purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Continue to persist and persevere.” – Brad Gast
There was not much time for stopping nor photography, however we did have a break at Quarantine Bay, near the beautiful town of Eden, known for its whale festival.
The further South we went the wetter the weather. There were clouds in Cann River, including this S shape that made me think of a superhero’s symbol in the sky, like the Bat Signal.
I did take the opportunity to pull over and grab a couple of snaps of the sunset, nicely framed by trees.
We started the next morning with a quick stop near our cabin by the sea at Corner Inlet National Marine Park.
How inviting does the water look?! Being part mermaid I would love to have gotten in, but it was time to head off to Wilsons Promontory for some adventures which you can find here – The Other Way – The Southernmost Tip.
