Bendalong is the quintessential south coast seaside holiday village. Located between Jervis Bay to the north and Lake Conjola to the south, it’s situated 14km down a side-road off the Princes Highway. It has one cafe and one petrol station/store and that’s it in the way of amenities. At the eastern side of town on
Discover the country charms of Berry in South Coast NSW and its cafes, restaurants, shops, boutiques, wineries and attractions.
When traveling to the Shoalhaven from Sydney it’s easy to miss one of the nicest vistas on the south coast. Unless you come off the Princes Highway at Gerringong and then travel south through Gerroa, you’ll miss out on an awesome view as the road crests at the top of the hill and Seven Mile
Explore five of the most romantic beaches in South Coast NSW, ideal for a day or weekend trip with your partner.
The Morton National Park is a humungous 500,000 acres in size and stretches all the way from the southern edges of Sydney to Ulladulla on the south coast. The most famous landmark in the park is Didthul (Pigeon House) Mountain but most of the rest of the park is a complete mystery to the average
Twice a year whales migrate up and down the east coast of Australia to and from the Antarctic. Seeing these incredible creatures in the wild is always exciting and I absolutely love seeing photographs and watching videos of them in action. However woe-betide you if you consider flying your drone anywhere near a whale in
Some of Jervis Bay’s beaches are known internationally – others, not so much. For instance Hyams Beach draws visitors from around the world thanks to its famed white sand, Honeymoon Bay is so popular you have to enter a lottery just to camp there during the summer and Green Patch always sells out for the
The south coast of NSW is blessed with some stunning little creeks and inlets, but I’d wager that few of them are as photogenic as Narrawallee Inlet. Located just to the north of Mollymook and a couple of hours south of Sydney, this little oasis is like a tropical gem in the sub-tropical Shoalhaven. The
The Kiama Coastal Path stretches from Minnamurra all the way down to Gerringong. However the nicest stretch is the section between Kiama and Gerringong, which only opened up to public access about eight years ago. The path hugs the edge of the coast and passes bays and beaches that you’d never normally have access to.
The Berry Canal was dug in 1822 so that boats could pass further up the Crookhaven River and enable the transportation of goods to Sydney and beyond. Connecting the Crookhaven and Shoalhaven rivers by means of the canal changed the river ecosystem completely and over time the old mouth of the Shoalhaven River almost completely
This summer the little village of Hyams Beach in Jervis Bay reached breaking point. The village is home to one of the most popular beaches in the entire region, but unfortunately it does not have the facilities or the capacity to cope with the thousands of tourists who want to come and check it out.
Located inland of south coast NSW, the Southern Highlands is a scenic region best known for its dairy agriculture, its massive posh houses and its waterfalls. Thanks to a post-glacial rise in sea level affecting the uplifted lava fields of the Sydney basin, we ended up with dramatic and verdant valleys and, yes, tumbling waterfalls
So who hasn’t heard of Vero yet? Anybody? If your introduction to this app was anything like mine then the first you’d have heard about it was a screenshot in someone’s Instagram story feed. Sound about right? Maybe you got the nod in a Facebook group you belong to, with someone posting along the lines
Has to be said, the video for this new drone is extremely impressive – if it performs as well as these videos suggest then this is a real game-changer. DJI have object avoidance in their drones, but it is not particular smart and not particularly useful – what Skydio have done is place object avoidance
The saying goes that the best camera is the one you have with you. For many of us, that means the camera on our iPhones. But if you find you images are lacking that special something, or you’d just like to learn a bit more about using your iPhone camera’s full potential, then read on!
There’s so much to see and experience in the Booderee National Park that a week’s stay is only going to scratch the surface. I’ve been exploring this amazing place since I arrived in South Coast NSW, 11 years ago and I never tire of the amazing scenery. Out on the eastern edge of the park
Some amazing photography in the Hasselblad Masters Awards 2018 list.
These days it’s becoming more and more important to be able to quickly and easily move photos and videos to and from your smartphone. For example if you want to post a photo that you took on your DSLR to your Instagram feed then you need to get that image off your PC and onto
They might be one of the biggest photographic cliches on the planet, but I don’t care – I love taking photographs of sunsets. There is just something about the colours that makes straight daytime landscape photographs seem a little boring. However photographing the sunset can be tricky and so, if you’ve tried and failed to
#bnw_captures – took a photo that sucked, converted it to black and white in the vain hope that it might improve it – it did not #nofilter – Maybe not applied in Instagram, but almost certainly processed to fuck and back in Photoshop. This tag is generally only used after a painful process of self-realisation
When I was over in the UK a couple of years ago, I went into the (excellent) Campkins Future Vision camera shop in central Cambridge. I needed a new SD card and I wanted one that was a) quick and b) rugged. I ended up buying the Black Delkin Devices 32Gb card and it served me
