and headed off with our picnic lunch to Thirroul beach, near Wollongong, about 45 minutes from home.
Had our healthy lunch and this was the viewWe then walked around to the beach
From here we headed north up Lawrence Hargreaves Drive to the Sea Cliff Drive which is a bridge that is built out over the water. The original road used to hug the cliffs and wind and wind but there was a lot of trouble with rockfalls and land slides so the road was closed for a couple of years and they built this road out over the rock platforms and the water. Quite an engineering feat!
On the way home we saw a broken down car and the man was in a wheelchair so we turned around to see if he needed any help. He had already called for help and it was on its way. When we were turning around we saw a sign to a Conservation Area so being the intrepid explorers that we are we turned in to have a look. There was a couple of short walks from the car park and one said Kellys Falls so we couldn' resist that one!
Was a short walk down to the rock platform of the waterfall, small but had water flowing, and a track that meandered along the gorge to get more views and to another flowing stream.
Hmm not a very good pic but these were all taken on my phone camera. If you can see the top of the waterfall, we walked across the top of it to get to this point.Friendly lizard -
Sorry, this last pic is blurry but you get the idea, a lovely flowing stream that eventually goes over rock edge LOL Was lovely and cool fresh water.
Well that was our adventure for today, back to reality tomorrow!!
