For the duration of our 3 night stay in Sydney we spent our afternoons and evenings with the most hospitable and awesome; Rachael Oakes-Ash in her ridge top haven between Avalon and Bilgola beaches. I’d never been past Manly so the daily drive back from the city was a bit of a revelation!
A whole different world exists up there nestled in pockets of bush, national park and a simply amazing coastline. I spotted whales spouting, woke up to furiously chattering kookaburras, fence scampering ring tailed possums and enjoyed all the very healthy and tanned looking locals!
Yes. You should head up there.
The Boathouse at Palm Beach was somewhere pretty special. Eclectic, quirky and most importantly…delicious!

…… Salt water pools! Only the BEST invention EVER!
Nearly every beach up there had one tucked in against the cliffs. This was at Avalon.
