As the early morning sun cast shadows on the perfect yellow sand, we were treated to glimpses of snug little cabins nestled behind the dunes. It doesn’t get much better than this for an early morning walk.
Wading amongst the incredible rock formations at Shelly Beach and watching the waves curl around the rock pools, I enjoyed the opportunity to capture some photos of this beautiful beach.
Shelly beach, located east of Tuggerah Lake and bordering the Pacific Ocean south of The Entrance, is on the Central Coast of New South Wales.
An early morning walk is often very rewarding. Water, as calm as a millpond, is disturbed only by the occasional fish jumping, or a white Heron skimming the surface in search of breakfast.
At anchor, the Codock II – a passenger launch built circa 1945 – is mirrored in the perfectly still water. Then a small boat motors by and sends perfect silky ripples to the shore.
Davistown, on the Central Coast of New South Wales, is home to many small wooden boats. The Putt Putt Regatta and Wooden Boat Festival is a popular annual event. Pictured here in the early morning light are some of the wooden boats, protected with their blue canvas covers.
Visiting Bouddi National Park, we took the coastal walk to Bullimah beach and were surprised to see these little rock pagodas decoratively arranged over a wide area. The coastal boardwalk from Putty beach winds along the cliff-top, providing amazing views of the coast and the Tasman Sea.
With a wonderful swimming beach, the booked sites at Putty Beach camp ground are very popular and can be reserved from NSW National Parks.
