Helensburgh is a town on the verge of transformation, moving away from its coal mining roots to become a commuter town and tourist attraction. Two popular attractions are the award-winning, family-run zoo, Symbio Wildlife Park (see feature on page 30), and the Sri Venkateswara Temple (SVT), one of the most famous and popular Hindu temples in the southern hemisphere.

An hour south of Sydney, this historic coal-mining town is the gateway to the Grand Pacific Drive.

Helensburgh

Building started in 1978 at this site, chosen according to Vedic principles (Agama Sastras) with five requirements: the site should be a virgin land, a forest, ideally on an island, with fresh water, and on a coastline. Today it is one of the region’s most popular attractions, attracting many thousands of people annually. About 20 major festivals are held a year, with the temple exploding into a vibrant whirl of colour, music and fragrance as statues are paraded around, accompanied by musicians, priests and chanting crowds. The Ganesh festival in September is a highlight, finishing at Stanwell Park beach, where clay idols of the elephantheaded god are thrown into the ocean. The temple's canteen serves delicious vegetarian food, open 10am-4pm (Sat/Sun and public holidays). For more information, call 1300 626 663 or visit www.svtsydney.org. The ‘Burgh is also home to several historic tunnels. The best known is the Metropolitan rail tunnel, with resident glow worms located in its dark depths. The entrance is at the corner of Vera Street and Tunnel Road, near Helensburgh Station. Please take great care at this fragile site – don't litter or do anything to harm the glow worms (i.e., no fireworks, fire juggling, smoking or mosquito repellent).

Stanwell Park is the first seaside village on the NSW South Coast. It is famous as the home of 19th-century aviation pioneer Lawrence Hargrave, whose experiments with box kites on Stanwell Park Beach were instrumental in the development of human flight. It’s still a popular recreational flight spot – paragliders and hang gliders take off from Bald Hill to enjoy panoramic views along the coast before swooping down to land at the beach. In the colonial era, Stanwell Park was the abode of a gang of bush rangers, led by arch

villain ‘Wolloo Jack’. Today the village is a more peaceful spot, home to a creative community including artists, filmmakers and authors. It gets busy on weekends when families, surfers, dog walkers and fishermen come out to play. Stanwell Park has no supermarket, petrol station or pharmacy. It does, however, have enough cafes to give keep visitors entertained daily. Try the amazing gelato at Uluwatu Blue (and pick up a bikini for the beach too!), takeaways from the Stanny, coffee on Hargrave Cafe’s balcony and brunch at 16 Feet. In a sunny courtyard with escarpment views, the Palms Cafe is a superb spot for a leisurely brunch or lunch. Afterwards, enjoy a browse at Boho Chic and Articles Fine Art Gallery, owned by painter John Vander and his wife, Frances. The Beachside Reserve has a children’s playground, with climbing frames, scooter track and sea views. There are barbecue areas and vast lawns for picnicking or impromptu soccer. Stanwell Park Beach is popular with surfers; swimmers should take care as the beach is also infamous for rips and drop-offs. Wrap up the day at Stanwell Park Surf Club, home to some of the world’s most scenic yoga classes, with fresh ocean breezes adding to the experience (call Karen, 0403 789 617).

There’s no better way to spoil mum this mother’s day than with a special gift from Boho Chic Boutique!

Our family starts the morning with a wholesome and tasty breakfast at The Coal Coast Eatery. We then take a leisurely walk, following the Lawrence Hargrave Drive footpath north to the beautiful Comradeship sculpture, in honour of community activist Mike Dwyer. This reserve has one of the best views in Coledale and is perfect for a picnic. We head back down south and at Coledale Beach take to the sand to walk along the foreshore. At low tide, you can stroll along the rock shelf in front of Coledale Surf Club and south to the ocean pool. There's a debate

whether it's warm enough for a swim and the kids win the argument, preferring to keep walking south to Sharkeys Beach, popular with dog walkers and surfers. Leaving the kids to build sandcastles and frolic with local dogs out for a run, I make my escape to The Salon for a little pampering then squeeze in a bit of shopping across the road at 55 Parrots homewares store, admiring their amazing furniture and decorative pieces. The family catch up and we take a turn at the oval onto Cliff Street, then up to the playground for more playtime. Tummies are rumbling, again! Lunch options include take-away fish and chips from Sharkys, the Coledale RSL bistro, a DIY barbecue courtesy of Coledale beach facilities and, of course, Earth Walker & Co can whip up the tastiest meal. You could also drive two minutes north to a beloved local haunt, the Wombarra bowlo, for Thai/Oz food and fun on the green. We spend the afternoon on the beach, looking for creatures in rock pools. There's talk of one day trying fishing or snorkelling, and I am yet to do a yoga class at the Surf Club or Community Centre. So much to do! Want to stay longer? Pitch a tent at Coledale Camping Reserve and wake up to sunrise over the sea.

It’s a breezy, gorgeous tune which truly gets this charming beachside village between the escarpment and the sea. Here are some suggestions to make the most of your visit: Start with a morning bushwalk up to Sublime Point. It is a steep climb up the stairs and ladders but the view from the top is worth it. The track from the bottom starts near Foothills Road and Buttenshaw Drive (1.4 kilometres return). If you need relaxation and a foot scrub after your walk, try Ibah Spa Austinmer or, if this is

Johnny usually offers classes over the summer holidays too. Wander down Moore Street and grab a coffee from Austinmer favourite, Fireworks. You’ll find delightful shops nearby including jewellery store, Mala Beads, Haveli Living and Mimi’s Place. Then on to the star attraction, Austinmer beach with twin ocean pools and a big rock pool which is perfect for young kids and their parents to loll around in and explore. Take a moment to turn your back on the water and take in the breathtaking escarpment views too. The outside of the old dressing sheds are updated on weekdays with the water temperature and a trivia question. If the kids need a change of scene, there’s a recently renewed gated playground there too. After all that virtuous walking and swimming, tuck into some takeaway fish and chips from 50’s themed Shell’s Diner or try Austi Beach Cafe with views of the waves. If you’ve forgotten anything, Austinmer Beach newsagent sells lots of useful bits and pieces. Drink in a perfect Austinmer day with a cocktail at the new Headlands Hotel.

Thirroul Discover unique boutiques, surf stores and great coffee. There’s a buzz about Thirroul. Possibly because this popular seaside village thrives on some of the finest coffee on the coast. This love of caffeine has resulted in about a dozen flourishing cafes in a town of only 6083 people. Visit on the weekend of April 6-8 and you’ll also find the town alive with art, thanks to the Thirroul Seaside and Arts Festival. Local artists will display their work on the streets, in stores, at the library and even at the beach. Look out for a new sand sculpture show on the Sunday. Other reasons to stop here include eclectic

boutiques and homewares stores such as Cocoon. For vintage treasure hunters, there are four options on Lawrence Hargrave Drive: Thirroul Antique Centre, Now and Then Collectables, the Mission Australia op shop and Retro Wombat. Surfers should check out Byrne Surf and DP Boardroom – run by legendary local board shapers, Parrish Byrne and Dylan Perese. The town takes its name from the Thurrural Aboriginal people who lived here. Translated, it means “the place or valley of the cabbage tree palms”. One iconic building is the old Kings Theatre, now Anita’s Theatre. Built in 1912 it was once an open-air theatre with a canvas roof and still hosts live music and film nights. Children will love Thirroul’s beachside playground and nearby saltwater pool on Bath Street, open 6am-7pm. Thirroul Beach is heaps of fun for swimmers, surfers and bodyboarders. And, of course, you can enjoy a coffee! Kick back at Thirroul Beach Pavilion, overlooking the sea.

Harvest time

Glenbernie Orchard’s Jo Fahey walks us through a year in life on the farm, starting with apple picking season.

Having a farm reveals challenges and wonders. We thought we’d share a few of these with you and give a little insight into farm life in our modern world! Our farm traditionally has grown fruit for the Sydney market system, supplying major supermarkets. In recent years we have shifted toward making award-winning products and selling direct to consumers. We have been opening up the farm for experiences like fruit-picking tours. Visitors get to see what we do and how we do it up close and personal. AUTUMN Autumn is apple picking time and stone fruit

trees will begin to lose their leaves. Late autumn can be a really lovely time for photography sessions and wedding shoots. We begin to plan and prepare the ground for new tree plantings. The apples lose their leaves after harvest is complete during May to June. We start practising recipes for mulled cider and apple cider vinegar tonic to ward off winter colds. WINTER In winter the trees sleep. The orchard can look a bit spooky but there is plenty happening across the farm. While the trees sleep the farmer gives them a much-needed haircut! This is called pruning and it allows us to train the tree and select the best shape for fruit production. We

THE AUTUMN

SPRING The trees begin to wake up across the farm in a kind of mosaic. Flowers pop out firstly on the stone fruit, variety by variety. This means different spots across the farm become ablaze with colour in a sequential pattern. The bees wake up from their hibernation and in the warmth of day you can hear them working busily among the fruit trees. The apple trees are the last to flower as spring is in full swing and heading quickly toward summer. Apple flowers are white and the leaves begin to grow at the same time. This is a great time for photos, and close ups on the working bees!

Apples kick in later in January. We usually think of apples beginning after Australia Day. Tours of the orchard, including fruit picking, are a feature of this time and happen mostly on weekends. It’s a great time for celebrations and feasting on superb fruit and mixing it up with the apple ciders!

can let in maximum light and grow the fruit in better positions so they develop more flavour, sweetness and even better colour. In the background we are busy making cider, mead and vinegar. This is the perfect time for mulled cider and making apple pie. Our annual Apple Pie competition day is around the end of July. A mead around the fire goes down well.

View to the north: walking across from Clifton to Coalcliff.

The Illawarra’s stunning Sea Cliff Bridge echoes the curves of the coast in a concrete testament to human ingenuity. The bridge was built out over the sea for practical reasons – so motorists wouldn’t be hit by rock falls or land slips. But it turned out to be a thing of beauty, snaking across the ocean like a giant serpent of maritime mythology. It is the ultimate sculpture by the sea. Each year thousands of tourists are drawn to it and the bridge has featured in many car advertisements, including a promo for Ferrari. But to really appreciate this engineering marvel, you need to walk, not drive it. So you can stop, gaze at the crashing waves below and the soaring escarpment above. Marvel at how the sea changes colour from shallow green to deep blue. Feel the sun beating down, the ocean breeze on your skin. Soak the calmness of the curves, slow down and spot the dolphins. VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE Look north, and you’ll glimpse Stanwell Park village and beach, then the beautiful misty green headlands of the Royal National Park sloping down to the sea. Look south, and you’ll see the villages of the Illawarra stretching along the coast to the city of Wollongong (affectionately known as ‘the Gong’). From about May to July, look out for humpback whales cruising north to breeding grounds in warmer waters; they head south with new calves about October/November. Sea Cliff Bridge, with its magnificent, expansive view of the Pacific Ocean, is a great spot to watch the annual migration. Other species that may surface are short and long-finned pilot whales, minke whales and southern right whales. Pods of common and bottle-nose dolphins may be seen year round. Occasionally a fur seal will pop up. On the rock platforms below you may spy a sooty black oyster catcher, with its long red bill poking about for molluscs. A lucky few could see white-bellied sea eagles circling up high. Other birds that occur here include gannets, shearwaters, petrels and – in winter/ early spring – albatrosses that come to feast on giant cuttlefish.

The ultimate sculpture by the sea, the Sea Cliff Bridge links the villages of Coalcliff and Clifton – and it’s a great place for a stroll.

The Bridge Walk HISTORY OF THE BRIDGE Today the Illawarra escarpment is famous for its wild, rugged beauty and it’s formally part of the Illawarra Escarpment State Conservation Area. What early European explorers admired about the cliffs back in the early 1800s, however, were the great coal seams (hence “Coalcliff”). The first road linking Coalcliff and Clifton was built in the 1860s – you can see the ruins of this boulder-strewn ghost track today, cutting into and around the escarpment. Mining started in the area in 1878 and, over the next 40 years until 1918, about three million tonnes of coal was extracted from Coalcliff Colliery. Rock falls were common in the old days – signage on the bridge explains how when weak layers of coal were eroded in the cliffs, the other layers of clay, stone and sandstone formed an unstable overhang until – crack! – it broke off and a boulder smashed from a great height . In 1947, the road became Lawrence Hargrave Drive, named after the Stanwell Park inventor and aeronautical pioneer. (Currently, fans are campaigning for Sydney’s second airport to be named in Hargrave’s honour too.) The original road was often closed as rain, erosion and weathering caused rock falls and mud slides. Then in August 2003, a big embankment slip shut it altogether. The put the stopper on the famous Sydney to Gong bicycle race and caused serious problems for local residents and businesses, who were cut off from schools, shops and the tourist trade. Necessity was again proved the mother of invention and construction of a new road began in June 2004 – this time an ingenious bridge over the sea, safe from falling rocks and earth. According to a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson: “The idea to build the bridge outward and over the sea was developed by a team of specialists known as the LHD Alliance. “This team comprised representatives from the Roads and Traffic Authority, Barclay Mowlem, Coffey Geosciences and Maunsell who used their considerable construction, geotechnical, civil, structural and environmental engineering expertise to generate this innovative Continued on page 23

the Helensburgh exit, follow Lawrence Hargrave Drive south along the tourist route dubbed “the Grand Pacific Drive”. Park at either Coalcliff (north of the bridge) or Clifton (south of the bridge). Drive time is about an hour and a half. By train: From Sydney, take the South Coast Line to Coalcliff Station. Journey time is about an hour and 20 minutes. Walk down the hill, stopping to admire the beach and pool, or keep following the road south to the bridge. Be warned: it’s 15-minute stroll there but a steep hike back up! By bus: From Wollongong, catch Premier Illawarra bus no. 2 for an hour-long scenic ride up the Illawarra coast. Stop at Clifton School of Arts (built 1911, often with exhibitions on weekends). Stroll downhill to the bridge. Buses run Monday to Saturday. Download the Opal Travel app to plan your bus or train trip.

idea to address the unique site conditions.” It was a massive project, involving hundreds of people, 11,000 cubic metres of concrete and $49 million. The bridge was built in two parts: the southern end using a balanced cantilever method, while the northern section was incrementally launched. Building of the bridge was finished – remarkably! – ahead of schedule on 11 December 2005. Grown-ups presumably mystified, a competition to name it was opened to primary school students, who delivered the goods. Makenzie Russell, an 11-year-old at St. Brigids, came up with Sea Cliff Bridge – a simple and spectacular winner. It’s a bridge. With sea on one side. And a cliff on the other! EXPLORE THE BRIDGE Walking from Coalcliff to Clifton is about 2.5km return. The average jogger can manage this comfortably in less than 20 minutes. Double that, or more, if proceeding on foot. The bridge walk is mostly flat, with some gentle slopes and the smooth concrete path is accessible for everyone from mums with prams to kids on scooters to visitors in wheelchairs. Take a breather at the information boards and shady benches beneath a row of six Norfolk pine trees that stand sentinel on a northern curve. Or, you could hitch a ride with local legend Steve Melchior, of Just Cruisin’ Harley Davidson Motorcyle Tours. Steve has been leading Illawarra tours for more than 25 years and is a well-known sight on Sea Cliff Bridge. Going for a spin with Steve has become popular with cruise ship passengers – in fact, Radiance of the Seas Captain Goran Peterson was one of the first to enjoy a tour when the Royal Caribbean cruise ship first docked in Wollongong in 2016. Steve’s touring beast of choice is often the Boom Trike with a 1.6-litre, twin-cam Ford motor – stylish, comfortable and safe, with a bit of wild side thrown in for good measure! While exploring the bridge, visitors may see ‘love locks’ – symbols of affection, with couples’ names engraved. Don’t be tempted to add yours to the fence – the symbolism could backfire. Roads and Maritime Services aren’t fans of these ‘padlocks of passion’, and every so often send officials with bolt cutters to remove them, claiming love locks cause safety and maintenance issues. Safer to stick to the old traveller’s adage: take only photos, leave only footprints.

Salt Water Wonderland A local expert, Jim Hughes, gives us his favourite surfing spots on the South Coast. Thirroul resident Jim Hughes is Surfing Australia's Sport Development Manager. He has been developing, planning and implementing surf programs, courses and events around the world for more than 10 years. JIM'S TOP 3 SURF SPOTS ON THE SOUTH COAST

1

Black Rock: One of the main reasons to hang around Jervis Bay and Booderee National Park as a surfer is to surf the all-time classic South Coast reef break – Black Rock (aka Aussie Pipe, Wreck Bay or Summercloud Bay). It is one of the hollowest and most photogenic lefts in Australia, breaking intensely over a shallow cunjevoi- and urchin-infested bottom.

2

Green Island: A long walk and a long paddle (over the Shark Pit) to the SW tip of Green Island when a moderate to big NE to S swell hits is often rewarded with long; sectioney, bending, walled-up lefts, great for long-boarders and short-boarders.

28

These super fun slow-peelers are also one of the rare offshore options during those summer NE winds … but this often means a crowd!

3

Sandon Point: Only 15 minutes north of Wollongong at Bulli is Sandon Point, one of the South Coast’s most well-known breaks. A long, often fast point break that holds swells up to 8-10ft. A good right for intermediate to experienced surfers that can produce really long rides if you chance it on the right day. This is a really wave-rich area as well, with great beach breaks and reefs all the way along the coast north to the Royal National Park. JIM'S TOP 3 LEARN-TO-SURF SPOTS ON THE SOUTH COAST

1

Bulli Beach: Probably one of the best learn-to-surf options on the South Coast of NSW. Bulli Beach offers the perfect options for beginners almost 365 days a year. From the sheltered rolling waves of the south-end, perfect for youngsters and the more cautious beginner, to the bigger breakers on the north end for the

Bendalong Beach: All levels of surfers will find something at Bendalong, where sometimes busy, but highly consistent peaks can offer anything from barrels on NE to SE swells to perfectly gentle learning waves through all tides. There are great shories and a bunch of other spots around this area too for all abilities, from Washerwoman’s to Manyana.

Broulee Beach: North Broulee is the closest beach to Canberra, and considered one of the best learn-to-surf breaks on the South Coast due to its sheltered position and flat sand bottom. Most days of the year Broulee offers safe waves, perfect for the beginner surfer. Around the corner at South Broulee there is a more challenging beach break suited to intermediate to advanced level surfers. This is a stunning playground well worth a visit!

Animal attractions

There's so much to love at Helensburgh's award-winning zoo. Symbio Wildlife Park is an award-winning zoo, a hidden gem just an hour south of Sydney in Helensburgh, gateway to the South Coast. Owned by the Radnidge family, the zoo has won a string of accolades, including Illawarra’s Business of the Year – and for good reason! Over the past five years, Symbio has transformed from a small park to an innovative, creatively designed zoo famous for “getting you closer”, be it hand-feeding roos or bottle-feeding lambs. Symbio has also become a leader in education, sustainability and conservation. General manager Matt Radnidge (pictured) reckons what sets Symbio apart from other zoos is that it offers visitors an immersive experience. “We get consistent feedback about the interactive side of Symbio; how close you feel and how close you can get to a lot of the animals – really close, intimate encounters,” he said. Here are the South Coaster’s top 3 reasons to go the zoo.

1. FEED THE FARMYARD BABIES Symbio’s Farmyard is one of the largest in Australasia. It includes two barns covering 700 square metres and a chicken coop the size of a three-car garage. Visitors may bottle-feed baby animals, including little lambs with fleece as white as snow, just like the nursery rhyme. “All of the farmyard favourites are in there, including baby lambs and kid goats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducklings etc,” Matt said. “Interaction is our key focus within the farmyard, with lots of feeding and petting opportunities. We aim to have additional experiences such as milking demonstrations, billy tea and damper, and Happy Snap photo memories.” 2. ENJOY A PHOTO WITH NATIVE CRITTERS Buy a bag of food in reception and you’ll have kangaroos eating of your hand before you can say “Instagram”. Symbio’s resident mob of roos live a life of leisure, nibbling away in a big green

Symbio is also home to many other natives, including koalas, blue tongue lizards, freshwater crocodiles, emus, dingos, echidnas, Tasmanian devils and adorable Millie the wombat. The Reptile House is a must-see: each enclosure is literally a work of art, with a painting of a different outback or rainforest scene. Here you’ll find turtles, chameleons, crocs, rare lizards, and snakes, including the world’s most venomous – Australia’s inland taipan. For an extra-special experience, book a Close Encounter with a koala, kangaroo, echidna or wombat. Holding a koala is forbidden in NSW, but you can pat and hand-feed fresh eucalyptus leaves to the cuddly marsupials.

their stunning golden manes, like those of an African big cat. The tamarins are South American natives whose coastal rainforest home is disappearing in Brazil as logging, agriculture, and industry take a heavy toll. “We are involved in 23 species management programs,” Matt said. “Captive breeding programs are an essential part of preserving appropriate numbers and genetic diversity of threatened species.” Top tip: check the board for Sumatran tiger feeding times. This is hugely popular, as keepers hide food around the tigers’ enclosure then release the beasts for a game of ‘hide and seek the meat’.

Stanwell Park author Sue Whiting shares her favourite tracks.

Stanwell Park author Sue Whiting has written 65 books for children since she was first published in 2000. Her latest story is Missing, a moving tale of secrets and suspense that tugs at the heartstrings. “I have written a great variety of stories, but I think if I am true to myself, I like a tearjerker, I like a story that has a lot of emotional impact,” Sue told the South Coaster. “Missing is for 10- to 14-year-olds and it’s about a girl called Mackenzie da Luca, and she’s 12. It’s the story of Mackenzie, whose mother goes missing in the jungles of Panama. Her mother is a bat biologist, so she is often overseas. “The story starts 114 days after she goes missing and Dad wakes up Mackenzie in the middle of the night and says, ‘We’re going to Panama, pack your things.’ Her father is obviously desperate to find out what’s happened to his wife, but Mackenzie is equally desperate to make sure he doesn’t – and that’s what the story is about. “It flips backwards and forwards between the then and the now, Panama and Sydney … “The main question I was looking at was, what do you hope for when there is no hope? Which is a really sad premise, but I had to find a positive out of that and have hope at the end. “It’s about resilience, and I think that’s really important when you’re writing for kids, that kids have the good and the bad – life’s not just good things, or exciting things, there are times of tragedy and great sadness. We live in really uncertain, tricky times now and it’s important that we have books where kids can develop some strategies and see that people do come through these things. “You might be changed, the world might be

different, but you do come out the other end and you can find joy again.” Sue – who has lived on the South Coast for 30 years – kindly shared her three of her favourite walking tracks.

OTFORD TO GARIE BEACH, SOUTHERN SECTION OF THE ROYAL COAST TRACK The Coast Track from Bundeena to Otford Lookout is a well-known two-day trek, but if you aren’t quite up to the logistics of this, a great alternative is to start at Otford Lookout and take the track to Garie Beach in the Royal National Park. The track is well marked and has some steep sections, but the payoff is the spectacular views across the Tasman Sea. And if you time your walk to coincide with the humpback whale migrations (May to November) you might also be rewarded with a humpback or two breaching or showing off doing back-flips! This section of the walk takes about three hours and requires organising car drop-offs if you aren’t keen on doing the return trip on foot. Note: the middle section of the Coast Track, from Garie Beach north to Wattamolla, is currently closed due to a recent bushfire. Visit www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au for updates.

Forest Walk

THE FOREST WALK: SUBLIME POINT TO STANWELL PARK One of my favourite walks along the Illawarra Escarpment is the Forest Walk from Sublime Point Lookout to Stanwell Park. This 11-kilometre walk winds across the top of the escarpment through dry eucalypt forests, impressive stands of Gymea lilies and colourful arrays of wildflowers. The early sections are relatively flat and include boardwalks over swampy areas. At various points, you come within cooee of the cliff edge and can divert to lookouts for stunning ocean and coastal vistas. The highlight for me is reaching the top of Mount Mitchell above Stanwell Park – a great place to perch atop of the rocky outcrops for a picnic with a view – before descending into the village. Visit www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/ things-to-do/walking-tracks/forest-walk-tosublime-point-track

GERRINGONG TO KIAMA COAST WALK Growing up, my family had an onsite van at East’s Beach Caravan Park, so as a child I spent many hours roaming the grassy hills and rocky beaches along this track (before it was a track). So for me, this walk is as nostalgic as it is breathtaking. Starting at the northern end of Werri Beach, the track winds up dale and down, though grassy paddocks, past grazing dairy cows, along cliff tops, across sandy beaches and rock platforms, through some suburban streets, and finishes up at the Kiama Blowhole. The walk is well marked, 11kms long and takes about 3-4 hours (one way). I like to take the train to Gerringong and time the walk to coincide with the arrival of a train homeward bound from Kiama. A great day out! (Please note that the Werri Beach end can be problematic after heavy rain when the lagoon may open out to sea.) Visit www.visitkiama.com.au.

Sublime climb The South Coast is full of fantastic walks that can be used as training for something much more gruelling. Meet an Austi man who leads Kokoda treks.

Peter Morrison takes a quick break during our photo-shoot on one of his favourite local walks: the Sublime Point walking track. “The terrain here is such a great training ground for Kokoda.� Photo: Unicorn Studios

What’s your family link to Kokoda? My grandfather served in Tobruk and then later Dutch New Guinea during World War II. I spent a lot of time with him when I was growing up, talking about his experiences. It sparked an interest in Australian military history in me and also developed a huge sense of national pride. Give us an idea of what a Kokoda trek is like. We generally run treks over eight or 10 days, though for the fittest out there I’m running a six-day trip this June. Ten people is about the standard amount though in the busier period such as Anzac or school holidays you can get between 20 and 30 quite often. The trek is arduous, for most people, probably one of the hardest things they can do but the rewards far outweigh the toughness of it. Everyone knows it’s steep and physically challenging and that the trek is through a

THE AUTUMN

Tell us about your first Kokoda experience. I first walked Kokoda as a paying customer in 2007 and it opened my eyes to not just the story of the campaign but the people of PNG as well. Working for Adventure Kokoda has given me the opportunity to also be involved with our charity, Network Kokoda. After I first trekked, my boss Charlie Lynn offered me an opportunity to become part of the team. More than 20 treks later and I still enjoy sharing the experience and passing on the stories of the campaign with trekkers.

jungle environment which means mud, rain, bugs, humidity and most likely more mud, but the rewards are there. My theory is that the tired legs, sore muscles and the wet clothes all go away – they become good stories – but the memories and the way you feel emotionally stays with you forever and they become great stories. Our specialty at Adventure Kokoda is the military history of the Kokoda campaign; we discuss the characters and players in the story and hear first-hand accounts and poetry of the diggers who were there, we give detailed battle-site briefings at all the major points of engagement and stick to the wartime trail rather than the more modern version and, most importantly, we ensure our carriers, all descended from the Fuzzy Wuzzy angels [the name given to Papua New Guineans who helped carry Australia’s wounded during wartime], are looked after like no other.

If anyone knows the thrill of a great walk, it’s this bloke. Peter Morrison is a trek leader for Charlie Lynn’s Adventure Kokoda, an Australian tour company that has been leading groups on the Kokoda Trail for more than 27 years. Peter recently moved to Austinmer – and discovered the terrain of the Illawarra escarpment – think steep and muddy! – makes it a great training ground. Peter kindly took the time to answer some questions from The South Coaster.

Describe your training in the lead-up to a trek. A good base fitness is a must, you then need to start training for the specifics: plenty of hill climbs and descents, cardio and leg work. Everyone is time-poor but whatever you can do to prepare won’t be wasted. Kokoda is not one of those places where you want to regret not doing the preparation. I’m going to start running training sessions locally: the first will be on Saturday, April 21. I’ll also arrange for an information session at Thirroul Library on April 17 for a meet and greet. What’s your favourite local training hike? The terrain here is such a great training ground for Kokoda, plenty of steep hills and jungle-style tracks. Sublime Point Track is a favourite and you can link it with a few other walks close by to make for a longer excursion, or do it a few times over to give an idea of what Kokoda will be like for 10 days straight, of eight to 10 hours walking each day. For more, visit www.kokodatreks.com

SUBLIME POINT: THE SOUTH COASTER’S VERDICT

With a series of ladders and steep stairs, this iconic hike from Austinmer up the Illawarra escarpment is a steep and sometimes slippery challenge – for parents, that is. Fit six-year-olds tend to ace it. At the top are stunning views of the Illawarra coast. One-way is 0.7km, allow about 45 minutes. Walking down? The track starts 50m south-east of Sublime Point Cafe. Going up? The track begins in Austinmer, branching off the footpath that joins Foothills Rd and Buttenshaw Drive. Add a spooky incentive: look for the Illawarra’s legendary black panther.

From the Kellys Falls carpark, just south of Helensburgh, you can easily access the 785-metre Princess Marina Track, which leads to Lawrence Hargrave Drive opposite the entry to Stanwell Tops. The track is a bit overgrown and uneven in places, so watch your step! Long sleeves and pants are good protection from prickly shrubs. Take your time, there is plenty to photograph.

it must have been like many years ago when the track was first developed. It was the brainchild of Henry Halloran, who owned a significant parcel of land covering Stanwell Tops in the early 1930s. He had a vision to develop Stanwell Tops as a Pleasure Park. There was a cricket ground, swimming pool, kiosk, dance hall and cabins, and plans for a future hotel. Henry created the “Pleasure Walk”, with stonework built by Bill Powers. It became popular with hikers in the 1930s to ’40s. He gained permission from the Duchess of Kent, Princess Marina, to name the walk in her honour in 1937. The views are impressive into the Otford Valley from the stonework lookouts, with an abundance of wildlife and botanical treasures.

Maddens Falls, Dharawal National Park

Maddens Falls is an easy 1.3 km, 20-minute return walk at Darkes Forest in the Dharawal National Park. The car park is directly opposite Darkes Glenbernie Orchard. It’s very convenient to visit after a walk to stock up on fresh fruit, honey and cider! It’s also a good activity to team with a visit to the Darkes Forest Riding Ranch.


BUSHWALKING SAFETY TIPS

Plan your walk, check the weather forecast, tell somebody where you’re going and stay on the track. Take plenty of water, snacks, a first aid kit, a map and compass. Note: you may not have mobile phone service in the bush. Chasing waterfalls? NSW National Parks has these Waterfall Safety Tips: Stay behind railings and barriers. Don’t overestimate your abilities. Rocks and paths around waterfalls can be extremely slippery and are not suitable for walking. Please observe any signage. Don’t jump into pools at the base of waterfalls if you cannot see the bottom and have not checked for submerged objects. Never swim alone – ensure that someone is with you at all times. Take extra care after heavy rain, as waterfalls can carry large amounts of rushing water and are usually not safe to cross or swim under. Waterfalls are often remote and the water may not be suitable for drinking. Be sure to take enough bottled water for your trip. MORE INFO: www.nationalparks.nsw.gov. au/safety/bushwalking-safety

The walk starts on a fire trail that heads downhill, after about 200m, on the right you will see an elevated board walk off to the right of the trail – this is the start of the walk to the falls. The trail is in two sections, with a stretch of sandy path in the middle, and leads to the lookout of the falls. The lookout view of the falls themselves is a little restricted in part by a few shrubs that have begun growing there. A selfie stick will help get over that.

for more than 30 years. There are always flowers of some type or another and some pretty cool trees for photos. If there has been a lot of rain I suggest bringing gum boots as the sandy section of the walk can have a bit of water over it. LAST WORD If visiting these areas please be sensible and take out your own rubbish and, if you can, take some of what others have left. That way we can all do our bit to keep this place safe for the wildlife and nice for the next people who visit.

Wollongong Botanic Garden

Play time! South Coast photographer Lara McCabe shares six of her favourite children's playgrounds – all good, free fun! My kids love the playground. Even our one-yearold understands words 'swing' and 'playground' – the effect is like saying 'walkies' to a dog! We really are spoilt for choice along the Illawarra's seaside suburbs. So if you and the kids need some playground sanity, here are our top six playgrounds – for everyone from toddlers to big kids.

1

Austinmer Beach Playground

Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Austinmer. Gets my top rating for toddlers because it's one of the only local fully fenced playgrounds. Your takeaway coffee is just a short stroll away, as is a walk on the beach for a play in the sand.

2St James Park Playground

Cliff Street, Coledale. Beyond the soccer fields, this Coledale playground is my pick for a quiet and leafy spot. While not fenced, cars are a very long distance away. Take some snacks, toys and a picnic blanket to sit on.

3Stanwell Park Playground

Station Street, Stanwell Park. Fantastic for all ages, it's one of the largest playgrounds in the area. Adjacent to Stanwell Park Beach Reserve so take a ball to kick around. There are tables and chairs, plus benches, barbecues, toilets and a temporary kiosk that serves snacks. You may also be lucky enough to pick a day when the hang-gliders are landing on the beach.

4Towradgi Beach Park Playground

Towradgi Road, Towradgi. Terrific for its large areas dedicated to each age group. The towering castle slide is only climbed by the most courageous of older kids. Easy parking, great toilet facilities and situated right between Towradgi Park Bowls and Recreation Club and Towradgi Beach.

5Thirroul Beach Reserve Playground Cliff Parade, Thirroul. Probably the most popular and the busiest of our local playgrounds. Great for kids to learn to ride their scooters and bikes around the dedicated paths. My seven-year-old can't get enough of the speedy flying fox. I have been envious of smart

locals I've seen bring sausages to cook on the barbecue, banana chairs and a drink to enjoy while watching the kids!

6Wollongong Botanic Garden

Murphys Avenue, Keiraville. A firm favourite that's well worth a visit. The playground is fully fenced with good shade. Bring a picnic and wander around exploring the beautiful gardens. Don't forget to BYO coffee for yourself and a bag of peas to feed the ducks.Â

Dr Rip’s Science of the Surf Dr Rob Brander shares his top five beach safety tips. Come autumn, the water is still warm, but after April 29 most NSW beaches will be unpatrolled. So please read my ‘surf safety tips’ before going out for a dip. Many experienced beachgoers may be thinking ‘yep, already know this stuff!’, but it’s always risky to be complacent and a myth to think only international visitors get into trouble. Most drownings on Australian beaches are Australians who live near the coast. Here are my top 5 things to think about when you swim at a beach:

1Red and Yellow Flags

Always swim between the red and yellow flags. It’s so important, particularly if you have kids, are not a confident ocean swimmer, and don’t understand much about waves and rip currents. Drownings rarely, if ever, occur between the flags. Lifeguards and lifesavers do an amazing job of keeping you safe. If they can’t see you, they can’t save you. Swim season ends on April 29, but flags will still be up at North Wollongong beach, the only Wollongong beach to be patrolled year-round.

2Look at conditions

Spend 5 minutes looking at conditions before going in. If there are no red and yellow flags (or even if there are), you absolutely have to spend a few minutes thinking about whether the conditions look safe or not to enter the water. Are the waves too big? Is the water moving along the beach? Are there rips? Is there a nasty shore dump? Are there flags further down the beach? You don’t cross the road without looking both ways and you should never go for a swim without spending some time thinking about whether it’s safe or not. Those few minutes may save your life.

40

3Know your rip currents

All surf beaches have rips. These strong, narrow, seaward-flowing currents often occupy semi-permanent deeper channels against headlands and along the beach, and can suddenly appear out of nowhere when large waves break. Along our coast they occur about every 150m along the beach and there are about 17,000 rips on Australian beaches at any given time. Do you know how to spot rips? If not, look at my Rip of the Month feature at www.scienceofthesurf.com. Also keep an eye out for a documentary called Rip Current Heroes that premiered on the National Geographic Channel last December. It’s a powerful and educational doco, and I’m in it!

4Don’t rush in

Don’t just run in to save someone. Tragically, many people drown trying to save others. If you do see someone in trouble, even if it’s a family member, take 10 seconds to think about what you should do. Get someone to go get a lifeguard or call for help. Look for something on the beach that floats, that you and the person you are trying to save can hold onto.

5Keep an eye on the waves

Keep your eyes open. Never turn your back on breaking waves when you are coming out of the ocean, especially dumping waves. Look for jellyfish washed up on the beach. If they’re on the beach, they are probably in the water! Being an extra bit observant can save you a lot of pain. Read Dr Rip’s Essential Beach Book (UNSW Press) or visit www. scienceofthesurf.com.

Top Dive sites

Top 3 dive sites Rachael Fallon, general manager at Abyss Scuba Diving in Sydney, picks her favourite South Coast destinations.

1Martin Island Seal Dive

Swimming with seals must be one of the best things to do in the ocean. They are so cute, just like puppy dogs of the ocean. There is a secret location that the locals know about that is an amazing dive with seals. They are sure to get up close and personal with scuba diver and snorkellers and it will be an experience you will remember forever. Just south of Wollongong at Port Kembla, the boat does a short trip out to Martin Island, where the seals swim from down south for a holiday from June to October. As soon as the boat pulls up, the seals jump in the water and come right up to the boat to check it out. They are super-friendly and inquisitive – both snorkellers and divers can get close enough to just about touch them before they dart off. Make sure you have your camera for this one. The seals are so cute. This is an easy dive and snorkel for anyone to join in.

2Wreck Of The Bombo

Everyone loves a wreck dive. Be it the history of the wreck, the excitement of descending to explore a big structure or even simply the sheer numbers of fish attracted to the artificial reef, a wreck makes for an amazing dive. The south coast of Sydney, off Wollongong, is lucky enough to have a great wreck that divers love to explore. In 1949, the collier freighter SS Bombo, carrying 650 tonnes of ‘blue metal’ (basalt aggregate), disappeared off the coast of

Wollongong. A combination of the blue metal shifting in her no. 1 hold and rough seas caused her to capsize and sink without a trace for more than 30 years. There were only two survivors. The Bombo now lays upside down and broken in half at a depth of 30 metres just outside Wollongong Harbour. She is a perfect artificial reef, home to thousands of fish with several swim-throughs of interest. It is always an adventure, with different marine life every time you descend. Divers can always expect to see wobbegong sharks, cuttlefish, lots of school fish and sometimes there is even a grey nurse shark around!

3The Gravel Loader

Heading a little further south to Shellharbour, there is a great little shore dive called the Gravel Loader. Once again an excellent dive with lots to see. The Gravel Loader is, just as the name suggests, a very large pier that extends out into Shellharbour Bay for about 500 metres. So basically the diver can just swim between the pylons, making it an easy dive to naturally navigate. As I am sure you know, fish like a structure. So the structure of the pylons has become home to loads of marine creatures, big and small. Expect to swim though a heaps of yellowtail and at the end you will find a big school of old wives (pictured above), a spectacular sight.

You deserve a golfing break. John Towns, of Tradies Helensburgh Social Golf Club, picks four top-quality courses – listed here in no particular order of preference – that are just waiting for you to play them.

much damage to the score. The breathtaking surrounds feature the rugged Illawarra escarpment as a backdrop. The soft, easy flowing greens allow the players to attack the pin and keep the score under control.

Boomerang Golf Course

The home course for our Tradies Sports and Social Golf Club where we battle it out for the chance to collect the bragging rights for the month. With a slope rating of a respectable 112, and a lightly undulating course, this is perfect for mature exponents of the ancient art. The out-of-bounds areas are usually well protected by the resident black snake and it always pays to donate a ball to the golfing gods usually residing in the dam on the short par3 on the 7th.

Kangaroo Valley

Russell Vale Golf Course

A course I play on a weekly basis in their regular championships. A shorter course with a slope rating of 93 and treacherous greens which allows you to putt on and off the greens with very little control over the result. However all is not lost, while waiting for your turn to tee-off the view over the northern suburbs and out to sea will allow your nerves to settle before the next shot. This is one of the best-run clubs I have had the pleasure to be a member of.

Calderwood Golf Course

I play here several times a year with Vets and Probus groups. A public course with a relaxed atmosphere and open fairways that allow the average golfer with a natural slice to be able to recover without too

An excellent course for our yearly weekend away excursion. Originally designed by Jack Newton, the course is challenging with its diverse terrain and water hazards. The overnight accommodation with spectacular views of the course is excellent with dinner and breakfast included in the package if required, or dinner at the local pub is always a great night. With a slope rating of 135, carts are essential for a two-day event. This also allows players the extra glass of port to clear the system on the second day. Please note: There are many other golf courses I would love to play, from Stonecutters Ridge, the venue for the Australian open, the sand belt in Victoria to those public courses in small country towns, each one with their own challenges and unique beauty. I’m always looking forward to the tee shot that lands next to the hole, or that long putt that seems destined to drop into the cup and the feeling that keeps bringing you back to that next game.
