Culburra Beach and Point Perpendicular

We continued south down the coast and booked ourselves into a park at Crookhaven Heads (Culburra Beach), expecting a similar beachy seaside town to Kiama. 

The closest big town was Nowra (very simple and unexciting, besides a sensational produce market that was worth the drive in for). Crookhaven Heads and Culburra Beach were both very quiet towns, but our holiday park had the bonus of long car-free driveways and large green lawns, so we had a ball learning to ride new balance bike (Maxie) and skateboard (Tim, me and Dusty) and we made new good friends too. 

Also, plenty of beaches to explore ...

It was a good base point for exploring some very cool seaside towns nearby and Point Perpendicular lighthouse (inside the Beercroft Military Reserve, which is open to the public via security-issued tickets).

This lighthouse is the 'most painted' lighthouse in Australia.

The weather was really wild - crazy wind, we couldn't walk anywhere near the lighthouse as the pram was blowing away! But a quick look at the view from the cliff was breathtaking - totally raw and wild sea cliffs with beaches and bay heading inland. 

Pictures just don't do it justice. We bypassed Jervis Bay but we heard that it's worth going to. That'll have to wait until next visit, for us :) We were ready to head further south.
