We left home at 6.30 am to make the 1 hour 15 min journey to Jervis Bay.
The sun rose out of the sea as we reached Kiama.
 Looking back up the coastline northwards, back towards Wollongong.
 The dairy cows around Gerringong had just been milked and were now turned out into the lush paddock waiting for the sun to rise over the hills and warm them up.
Jervis Bay Whale Watch is based in Huskisson.
It is such a pretty town we have decided we must go back for two or three days when the weather warms up.

 Point Perpendicular stands on the north side of the entrance to Jervis Bay.  We had a friend drown in  a boating accident here about 20 years ago.  He managed to push 2 teenage boys, who were with him, up onto the rocks and they managed to scale the perpendicular cliff to safety but our friend was not able to save himself.
 These spectacular rocks falls were on the southern entrance of the bay.
 Albatross often follow whales, so are a good indicator for our boat to head to.

 When we saw our first 'puff' it was very exciting!!

This was more exciting.


  1. I'd love to see whales up close. So exciting. I love yout sunrise pic.

  2. WOW! I love the pic of the Whale's first "puff!" Looks awesome! I've never been whale watching, your pics make it look really worthwhile though!
    I don't remember that story about your friend. That is a very aptly named Perpendicular cliff!

  3. Glad you got to see some. We were disappointed the weather wasn't good for us when we were down there. Hope we can get to go another time.
