We arrived in Australia the 24th July and spent a week in Melbourne, then flew to Proserpine to spend a week in the Whitsundays for a week where we visited the Great Barrier Reef, then onto Sydney for a week, 2 days in the Hunter Valley, 3 nights in Nelson Bay followed by our last 3 nights on Bondi Beach. We fly home via 3 nights in Kuala Lumpur.
We thought Nelsons Bay was going to be a leisurely break but our son had other ideas for us which involved climbing Tomaree Mountain. It's summit is 161 meters above sea level and only a distance of 1.1km, so it's very steep and categorised as a Grade 5 hike.
Nelsons Bay and area was full of Pelicans, they kept their distance as did we, but they're obviously used to the number of people who visit this area.
