Our last day of The Roadtrip Diaries project started with an early morning hike down to treachery.
The Frenchies got wet and surfed, while we enjoyed being immersed in the yellow, blue and green contrast of nature that surrounded us.
We took to the road headed for our final destination Catherine Hill Bay.
A bush fire had just recently ripped through Catherine Hill Bay destroying everything in its path, even the historic pier was damaged. We made our way down a trail through a post apocalyptic scene before arriving at a cliff appropriately named “spinal tap” the idea is to run and jump out off the 25 m cliff to avoid hitting the rocks below. Everyone seemed hesitant at first but it was only a matter of time before one of us took it on with everyone following.
“the craziest experience of my life” said one traveller. it surely was an epic climax to the trip.
The last experience we would share together was exactly how it started. A BBQ in a scenic location with good wine (thanks Cock+ Bull!) good friends and a mesmerizing sunset.
We would like to thank everyone who shared this experience with us Anthea, Luke, Jarrad , Emma from Australia, Erica and Tyler from America, Kari and Shannelle from Canada, Lin from Brazil, Dave from England, Peirre and Perrick from France, Mark and Gemma from Scotland, Florian and Phillip from Austria, Hannah, Erik, Jonah from Sweden and all the other travellers and locals that we met along the way! Thanks to cock + bull for the wine and We Travel Company for making this trip a reality!
Hey guys you want to go explore a sea cave? A few puzzled looks but the group agrees.
We make out way down a steep, slippery goat track down to the rocks below. The tide was too high to enter via the main entrance so we opt for the backdoor..The travellers look at a narrow passage and question whether or not this is a good idea but are assured that it’s safe. The guide enters and the travellers follow.
This is something you would never think of to do or be able to find that’s why it’s always best to travel with a local when you’re in another country.
After getting dirty climbing through the sea cave we took the road again stopping in Forster for lunch, we shared some cock + bull by the river.
After, we hit the skatepark to shred some concrete.
In the afternoon we went to one mile beach and tackled the massive sand dunes! lot’s of injuries went down but we didn’t care we were living in the moment and having so much fun!
We enjoyed the sunset on Wallis Lake, more cock + bull and a spot of fishing a perfect end to an action packed day of adventure!
