A wicked east coast, 2006

Noosa BeachA long 3000 kilometers road trip took both, Bonnie and I, from Cape Tribulation to Sydney in 10 days. We had the privilege to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of the oldest rainforest in the world – The Daintree. The only place in the world where two world heritage areas co-exist. 10 days meant that it was possible to stop along the way and enjoy activities such as: Hartley’s Crocodile farm, suntanning in Airlie Beach, walking on Noosa’s spectacular beaches, visiting the Australian Zoo in Brisbane, and so much more.

One of my favorite activity was to stop by in Byron Bay for two days and surf. We had learn to surf in Surfer’s paradise (Thanks to Brent!) and we were now ready for some easier, more managable waves at Byron. We then zipped down the rest of the coast to get to Sydney on time for some climbing in the Blue Mountains.

We climbed in Berowra and Blackheath, at a crag called Upper Shipley. We also spent two days at the Corbett’s house in Leura. Very nice of them to let us stay there and enjoy some relaxing time. We had a great walk in the Blue Mountains with Roger as well. We are now ready to leave and enjoy South East Asia. We’ll, of course, keep you posted on our adventures in Thailand.
