Wollongong Short Visit

Wollongong – Light House

A 2 hour drive from Sydney to come here is really worth it, I came here last 2 years and it’s so good to be back! The day was sunny, warm and windy.

The City Beach view from the Light house is stunning. So many people were here last weekend.

More photos from the Light house.You can soak in the rock pool as photo below or just have a sun bathing, all you need to do is walk down to the rocks from the light house.

I bought a mango-hazelnut ice-cream from the ice-cream van but the taste is just normal. Its the only vehicle that sell drinks and dessert there at the time.

Palm Beach and Whale Beach Outing

Last weekend we planed on going fishing at Palm Beach at the Northern Beaches. So, we went early so we could catch the evening views. It was lovely evening and at 6.30pm it was still sunny and warm.

There is still many locals having picnics and swimming at the time.

Not to mentions all the nice boats park at the deeper side of the water. The water is calm here so its safe to swim. By the way this was my second time coming here but before was already dark so no nice views like this.

We didn’t notice this sign before. But after consult the land_based_fishing group in fb they said its ok to fish here as long as you clean up the mess.

We decided to look for other places to fish though since we are not so sure if its really okay to fish in Palm Beach. So we went to this Whale Beach it was on the other side of the land, just Waze for it if you have doubt. After a long haul to look for this beach we finally arrived. Whale beach is wide and the sand is golden brown colour (very unique). The waves is very strong and we saw other people fishing there as well.

Its hard to fish here, even with heavy sinker and fishing line doesn’t sink properly and keep coming back to the beach. Ive told my partner to get a proper gear as beach fishing isn’t as easy as the fishing on the wharf, especially the one with super strong waves hehe… Next time perhaps.

Lucky we brought some home cook canton fried noodles. We had dinner on the beach while watching the waves and sunsets.

Yup, thats Palm Beach Wharf night view. we came back to Palm Beach at 9pm because its safer here. We cast our lines from the beach and not from the wharf; technically legal =). Didn’t catch any fish though, quiet night. Even the people thats on the wharfs seems to catch nothing that night.
