A car trip down the cost in New south Wales was exactly what I needed. Getting ready was not easy since I worked till the very last minute before leaving but the joy of seeing those beautiful wild animals around the conjola lake area paied all the effort back. Being there for such a short time among so many busy days required a good plan.
This area is quite special for different reasons that I can summarise with three words: soundscape, landscape, wildlife.
Bendalong is pretty far from any noisy place and once you arrive the sound of the forest cheers you up. When I arrived to my cabin, three kangaroos were waiting for me just in front of the door.( I should say 4 cause one of them had evidently somebody else in her pouch).
Berringer lake is a very special place if you want to stay alone, silent and just hear birds around talking to you while you watch reflected trees on the quite waters. There are also many surf spots all around ( green island and manyana beach are the main ones)
