Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is part of the Hawkesbury River system and in fact is where the Hawkesbury meets the sea. These photos are from a short day trip I made to this location.
On the 18th of April Hapsis and I visited the Jenolan Caves with the cunning plan of visiting two of the pay-to-enter caves (and the free one as well) all in the same day.
On this sunny Good Friday the family headed for the Georges River National Park for a picnic. The site was fairly crowded and opportunities for exploring were very limited as often happens when in mixed company, but Hapsis and I had great fun photographing the seagulls and other wildlife that ventured our way.
Cape Solander on the Kurnell Peninsula is named after Swedish botanist Daniel Solander who arrived with James Cook’s expedition on 19 April 1770.
These photos are from a trip I made to Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains National Park in March 2010.
The Jenolan Caves (S33° 49.280′, E150° 01.141′, 814m) in New South Wales are among the oldest caves in the world. Australian geologists have estimated their age to be 340 million years, which places their origins in the Carboniferous Era.
The Orient Cave is one of ten caves that are open to the public, and the most highly decorated of them all. All tours are guided with the exception of the Nettle Cave/Devils Coach House tour. Fees apply.
