Easter long weekend

April is awesome! How often do you get a 4 day weekend? I've always wanted to see a waterfall... so here was my chance. The Minnamurra Rainforest is a 2 hour drive south of Sydney. There are 2 fabulous walks which take you through elevated timber boardwalks and swinging bridges. Part of it was so steep... but the workout was definately worthwhile. The waterfall was amazing! And it was lovely to take in deep breaths of nature... ah....
Nan Tien Temple, Wollongong

Lunch at Nan Tien Temple, Wollongong

The Nan Tien Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in the southern hemisphere... so it has kind of become a tourist attraction for any visiting relatives. And depite the rain yesterday, it was no exception for my great aunt. The temple is gloriously tranquil, filled with the grandeur of giant monuments, fancy landscapes and rich chandeliers. The dining hall, too, maintained the airy and peaceful ambience, with Buddha statues, soothing chants in the background and staff whom were extremely quiet and courteous. The vegetarian lunch set menu is available on Tuesdays to Fridays, 11am - 2pm, and on weekends from 11:30am until 2:30pm.

Jervis Bay

I spent last weekend camping at Green Patch, inside the Booderee National Park at Jervis Bay. So it reminded me to post up some of these pics which were taken during another trip down the south coast, last year.
