Jindabyne Lake

Jindabyne Lake

Jindabyne Lake and it’s surroundings were spectacular. Especially as we arrived there for a sunset and woke up before sunrise next day. In between I managed to capture Milky Way on the sky above the lake.
It was the first time I could clearly see the galaxy with my naked eye – amazing experience!
Morning was really cold, -2°C! Yes, freezing in Australia.

Australia, Kosciuszko National Park, Travel

On the way

On the way

Mount Kosciuszko is located 520 km from Sydney, approx. 6 hrs drive. The route leads through Goulburn,  Canberra, Cooma and Jindabyne. First part of the road from Sydney to Canberra is really boring, nothing interesting on the way. We stopped for an Easter lunch in Canberra – Polish style with sausages, pork pate, eggs and cakes! After the capital, scenery becomes more interesting. By Cooma you can tell you’re in the mountains. We stayed overnight in Jindabyne, which lays by the lake that shares the name with this little town. Water, mountains and autumn colors create spectacular views… so stay tuned for next post!

Autumn walk

Centennial Park

I’m not a big fan of city parks, especially the big ones. I much more prefer natural bush lands, forests and Sydney have a lot of those! Anyway, sometimes (very rarely) I like to sleep longer and as winter approaching days are getting shorter so Centennial Park  is a perfect place to wander around. From where I live it’s only 30 minutes walk trough charming street and lanes of Woollahra and Paddington suburbs.

You create what you will

19th Biennale of Sydney.

Since 1973, an international festival of contemporary art, held every 2nd year. It’s the biggest contemporary visual arts event in the country.
Cockatoo Island is the main venue with the largest number of exhibitions. Located in Sydney Harbour, only few minutes by ferry from Circular Quay. The place itself is very interesting – prior to European settlement island was most likely used by the  indigenous Australian as an fishing base. Between 1839 and 1869 it was a prison, 1870-1880 used for an Industrial School for Girls and a reformatory, since 1890 shipbuilding and repair activities expand, in 1900 become the Naval Dockyard of the Royal Australian Navy. In 2010 Cockatoo Island has been added to UNESCO World Heritage List.

Australia, Royal National Park, NSW

Bundeena to Otford

Royal National Park, NSW

Royal National Park. Established in 1879, the world’s second-oldest national park.
Located within an hour drive from Sydney CBD, easily reached by train. However, the walk we did that day required to take a ferry from Cronulla to Bundeena. From there we walked along the coast, approx 28km to Otford. What can I say? It’s such an amazing place. The walk itself was a bit challenging because of many uphill and downhill sections. Highly recommended!
