A mini heat-wave hit Sydney last week. From Wednesday to Friday the beaches were packed, the sand sizzling and the mercury rising to a crescendo on Friday afternoon when it topped out at 41 degrees. I knew the city beaches were going to be packed so I chartered a helicopter and took to the skies. However instead of heading to where most of the people were flocking, I decided to take a different tack and headed south to the Royal National Park.
This stretch of coastline, 29kms from the Sydney CBD, is home to the second oldest national park in the world, after Yellostone in the US, true story. It was proclaimed in 1879 and to this day development has been kept to a minimum. The ‘Nasho’ is also home to a collection of simply beautiful beaches. From open stretches of sand that pick up any swell, to protected bays that shine under the summer sun.
So kick back, scroll through and enjoy a collection of photos from the air, and no doubt, from where you wanted to be on Friday to escape the heat (and the crowds!)
Enjoy your day,
