How to make the most of the last days of summer – get back to nature in the northern Illawarra
The count down begins. Yesterday was the first chilly day for ages. It was a big reminder that summer days are drawing to a close. We need to make the most of the outdoors before we’re all hauled up in front of heaters.
So, the team at One Agency Downie Denison-Pender have put our heads together and come up with the 4 top things to do in the northern suburbs for this last weekend of summer.
How do these top spots rate in your book? Got any other suggestions?
Watch a Coledale Beach sunrise
Most mornings you can look out just past the beach to see a pod of dolphins dancing in the swell.
A few weeks back, we were told that the pod had dozens jumping right out of the water as they welcomed the warmth of the new day.
Enjoy escarpment views as you surf the morning waves
We all have a different favourite beach. But no matter where you are in the northern suburbs of the Illawarra, you’ll be sure to catch your breath when you look back to the escarpment and watch the colours of light change as the morning rises.
That time of day, the soft summer zephyr and cool water makes any surf or walk a pleasure.
Cycle south from Thirroul one evening
Our beachside cycle path can you take you all the way from the national park to Wollongong. Just for some alone time or something to share with the kids, an evening ride may just be the happiest part of your tomorrow.
Shoot to the top on a Sublime Point hike
A half hour race to the peak or a leisurely workout, this uphill bush adventure will invigorate. On a recent walk, we were spotted a friendly sugar glider who wanted to say hi. Amazing.
