South Coast – April, 2015

We were able to get away for a couple of nights down to the South Coast and stayed at Barlings Beach, near Tomakin, exploring further to the south on the second day. We were there in between storms, which was lucky – there was plenty of evidence of high seas on the beaches, from the wild weather earlier in the week. The day we left it rained again, we were told. Highlights were the beach walks, the magnificent sunset on the second day, the drive to Moruya Heads, Congo and Bingi Bingi Head, with short walks at each. Beautiful scenery and such interesting and colourful rock formations. The countryside is looking very lush and green with a dash of autumn colour.

Pelicans lining up for scraps at Batemans Bay. Rocks at the southern end of Barlings Beach, near Tomakin. Geology 101- folding. A rock mosaic. Gorgeous bright colours. Shags drying their wings. Beautiful golden light. More nice sculpted rocks. Golden outcrop. We saw these fins from Moruya Head and spent ages deciding they were probably seals?? They were just floating in the wash beside some rocks. But they also looked a bit like dolphins! View south from Bingi Bingi Head to Mt Dromedary also called Mt Gulaga. Remnants of the SS Monaro, rusting on the headland. View inland from Bingi Bingi Head. Headland to the north of Bingi Bingi Headland, can't find its name now. More beautiful rock pools. Late afternoon light at Barlings Beach. Stunning sunset - it just got better and better!
