New South Wales Stories and Tips

On the way to Jervis Bay

Wollongong Harbour Photo, New South Wales, Australia

While travelling form Sydney to Jervis Bay you we passed through Wollongong, an industrial city an hour south of Sydney, and several other small townships.

At Wollongong we stopped at Flagstaff Point, where we could veiw the harbour and take a walk around to stretch our legs. We vowed that we would return one weekend to take a longer walk around this city.

From Wollongong we carried on to the township, Kiama, where we bought our lunch and went to view the Kiama Blowhole. Unfortunately the blowhole wasn't very active the day we went there, but from postcards and pictures we have seen, it gives quite a display when it is.

Kiama is also an older town and has many older homes and shops there, which are worth looking around at to get a bit of a history kick.

Futher south we passed through Gerringong and Gerroa, both beachside towns. On the headland of Gerringong you will discover an Old Butter Factory, an old building from Australia's dairing history. Gerroa is on the coastline of Seven Mile Beach, which is reknowned for it's windsurfing.

Both beaches, and the rest of the coast, are great for fishing, swimming, surfing and other water sports

Then, before we got to Jervis Bay, we travelled through Nowra, which is the home of the Fleet Air Arm of the Australian Navy. Unfortunately time was not on our side so we couldn't stop to have a look at the Naval Aviation Museum that is there, but I have heard it's worth a trip.
