This vista shows Stanwell Park and its beach as seen from Bald Hill at Stanwell Tops, looking south towards the Sea Cliff Bridge and Wollongong.

Bald Hill is one of Illawarra’s most well known and most popular lookouts.

It was on the beach below Bald Hill that Lawrence Hargrave, an Australian pioneer of flight, experimented with box kites in the early part of the 20th century.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
