There is a stretch of coastline between Kiama and Gerringong on the NSW South Coast that is stunningly beautiful. Taking a walk up and over these hills for 6 km is no easy feat but when you are constantly stopped in your tracks by amazing sights it takes the pain away from your calves.
You first cross the beach – the sea on one side and lagoon on the other and through the cattle gate and you are amongst the hills that drop dramatically to the sea. The old farms with red-coated barns home to black and white cows. We used to call Port Kembla Cows -the same Football colours. I didn’t expect an emu. I imagined it running over the hills and coming to the ocean like a wonderful seaside holiday adventure and he just decided to stay.
Next time I will go without a camera and take a pencil and pillow and just take it in.
Here are some of the photos along the way but I love the sign at the beginning of the track that warns you of multiple dangers. It seems they missed out attacks by rampant emus.
