G’day from ‘Gong

We are in Wollongong, called Gong by the locals.

Tuesday we took a short but very early flight from the Gold Coat back to Sydney, picked up a rental car and drove out to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. We did a short bush walk that afternoon and a longer one in a deep canyon on Wednesday. Today we did a walk along a canyon wall, 100m or more above the valley floor, on an amazing trail built in the early 1900s.

This afternoon we drove out to Wollongong on the coast, not a pretty town, but a convenient place to stay. Gong is a steel mill town and my image of it as Hamilton by the sea isn’t far off the mark.

Tomorrow we continue south.
