CATHRYN & ALEX'S AUSTRALIAN ROAD TRIP | PART TWO, JERVIS BAY TO SEA CLIFF BRIDGE | PERSONAL

Happy Easter Monday everyone! Seeing as I have a rare morning off today I thought it would be a great time to share Part Two of our Aussie road trip with you all.

After visiting Jervis Bay and Cave Beach, with their pristine white sands and crystal clear waters (see part one here if you haven't seen our photos of those gorgeous places yet), we found a campsite situated in the woods and next to a beautiful river. We really lucked in and probably had the best pitch in the whole site!

The thing with sleeping in the camper was that we would be woken early everyday, the sun would creep through the windows at around 05:30 - 06:00, so we had no choice but to start our days and get back on the road by about 07:30 each day. We didn't mind this at all though as it meant that we could happily stop for 20 minutes or so whenever the fancy took us to stretch our legs and enjoy some of the wonderful beaches and scenery that we were discovering along the coast.

Sea Cliff Bridge, like Jervis Bay, was another point on route which we decided that we absolutely had to see. The bridge runs parallel to the cliff and is one of only 7 bridges in the world which does so. As with almost every place we stopped on our trip, we were blown away by so many things other than the actual reason why we chose to visit/stop there in the first place. In this instance, we were staggered by the views of the coast and the dramatic waves crashing against the cliffs, the abundance of absolutely gorgeous houses which lined the cliff face and the fact that a local cormorant was taking a dip in the open air sea water swimming pool.

Australia truly is a beautiful place and looking back at the photos reminds me just how lucky we were to have been able to live there for a while. If you have ever toyed with the idea of going, all I can say is do it! Make sure you give yourself time to really explore it and you'll be rewarded with breathtaking scenery on a daily basis.
