Australia Day Long Weekend 2014

What did you get up to this Australia Day? Tammy and I have been so flat out, running backwards and forwards between the Gold Coast, Kempsey, Sydney and Wagga Wagga over the last two months. Almost every weekend we have had to travel somewhere and have not had an opportunity to really explore our new home, around Sydney. So we decided this Australia Day to ironically, go driving! One thing that we have been talking about doing for a while is visiting and driving across the Sea Cliff bridge at Coal Cliff, on the Grand Pacific Drive just north of Wollongong.

So that’s what we did. It’s about an hour south of where we live, so it’s an easy day drive. We were so busy enjoying ourselves I didn’t take any photos, but we will definitely be going back so I will have to make sure to get some next time! There is a route map featuring the bridge here, it is located between Stanwell Park and Thirroul.

It was a spectacular drive, and we continued on down to Wollongong and all the way down to Shellharbour before circling around and making our way back up to Sydney. The scenery is spectacular. It reminds me in some ways of the Gold Coast, and in other ways, of Newcastle.

We are really looking forward to exploring the area more, and highly recommend checking out the bridge if you have the opportunity!
