Australian Road-Trip part 1: Sydney to Melbourne

So that’s it for Sydney!

We started the trip with some bodysurfing in Wollongong, 80km south of Sydney. The “Gong” is a city with a great laid-back beachside lifestyle which reminded us much about Manly, and we enjoyed leaving Bondi to find a nice and not crowded (!) beach to spend the afternoon.

We spend the night camping in Booderee national park with the sound of the frogs singing in the nearby pond to lull us. We discovered the next day the incredible beauty of Jervis Bay: stunning white sandy beaches and sapphire water. After a morning surfing at Cave Beach (that looks a lot like Bermuda), we then went walking in the forest and discover another lovely beach inserted into a small bay where taking a swim in the crystal blue water was a real delight.

Taking a swim in its crystal clear blue water of that made me think of Mauritius

We then pretty much surfed our way down to Melbourne in different national parks. We will remember in particular:

  • Surfing in Merimbula: The color of the water was stunning and the extraordinary courant added a lot of fun, even for just a swim

  • Hanging out with kangaroos at night at Bournda National Park but waking up to find a flat tire. Let’s hope it’ll not happen in the middle of the bush.
  • Surfing the very clean waves of Croajingolong National Park in the very early morning

  • Finding an awesome spot to do a crossfit and some free camping in Sale after an afternoon on the beach of Lake Entrance

Next stop is Melbourne! Check it out in our next post 😉
