New years day I headed out bright and early to fly my Mavic 2 along the coastline here. I headed to Gerringong first, but unfortunately my arrival coincided with the arrival of sea mist. No sooner had I put the drone in the air midway down Werri Beach than thick mist rolled in, totally obscuring the town! So, I packed up the drone and headed over to Kiama hoping it wouldn’t be affected by the mist. When I go there I discovered the mist was all the way up and down the coast, but not as bad at Kiama as it had been at Gerringong. So I flew the drone, got some nice shots including some full 360º panos. Afterwards I walked up the hill into town and head a sensatioanl Eggs Benedict at the Black Rock Cafe. In the evening I headed over to Shoalhaven Heads and shot a glowing red sunset. All things considered, it was a great way to begin 2019.
Located a perfect two hours south of Sydney, Kiama has long been a popular weekend destination for city-dwellers yearning for some country air. It is best known for its lighthouse and blowhole.
