Drive south to the town of Kiama - Pristine beaches, greenery and rural charm makes this town a peaceful abode. Kiama is home to world's largest blow hole, a crevice in the rock along coast.when the waves are powerful water gushes through the crevice and spouts out high into the air. I wasn't lucky enough to witness this phenomenon as the sea was calm and low tides couldn't do the magic.
Jervis bay :
Less than 3 hours from Sydney, further down south from Kiama is the Jervis bay, famous for its pristine white sand beaches, turquoise water and much less crowd. Whale watching is a great attraction here during the whale migration season (Jun - Nov). It was pretty exciting to see the Kangaroos walking around muck like the deer in India, harmless and adorable.
Watsons bay :
Take a ferry to Watsons bay, a great place to spend an evening. Walk along the picturesque coastline, explore the short trails around- one of it leading to a light house, watch the sunset across the majestic harbor bridge which can be viewed from the bay and am told the seafood here is to die for.
Bondi beach :
There are abundant sandy choices to explore around Sydney and the white sand beach of Bondi is the most popular one. The beach is bustling with people from dawn to dusk. Bondi is not just about the beach. The cafes, shopping centers and the night life makes it a perfect weekend getaway.
