Waterfalls in Australia are more common than you'd think. You're probably thinking about beaches and the outback and heat when you think of Australia but there's so much more. Wish I could write a blog with just the smells of Australia... it'd be awesome!!
Last weekend we went up the mountain to Wentworth Falls (about 20 min drive from our house) and had a great day watching waterfalls and hiking around. The rocks and formations and the beautiful "blue" haze that contrasts the green of the forrest and the dark sandstone rock was great. The weather was perfect and it wasn't crowded so that made a perfect day for us on Saturday!

Then, on Sunday we loaded up and drove about 1.5 hours down the mountain to Cronulla, south of Sydney. It was a cool beach but super crowded. We realized it was their spring break (12th year high school students are out of school so it's their party time).
Getting warmer here in Australia... loving it.
