Next, a drive over to Bouddi NP for a bike and hike to Tallow Beaches.
It is a steep start to this one with some riding and walking till I got to the top.
Took a short rest while viewing and photographing the wild flowers ... purples, yellows, reds and whites ... and a flock of Sulphur crested cockatoos.
The ride became fun now with good views and downhill.
At the gate, I climbed up the rocks for a more expansive view. Well worth it.
The ride was now steep downhill with erosion prevention humps until Tallow Beach. Yahoo!
At Tallow Beach, I wandered along the slightly windswept sand admiring mine and animal footprints. There was a small waterway at the northern end that ended by seeping into the sand. The beach was magnificent with a backdrop of rocky cliffs and greenery.
The views from the headland between the two beaches were great - looking along the coast north and south, as well as, the cliff drop off.
Little Tallow Beach was small and pretty, surrounded by cliffs with a small creek that bubbled over the rocks and once again disappeared into the sand before meeting the sea.
A great 7.38 km bike ride and hike.
