To those in the Northern Hemisphere shovelling snow at the moment…. a Little bit of Summer downunder !!!
Avalon Beach is one of the many beautiful beaches that stretch along the northern beaches of Sydney set between two headlands. About 1 hours drive from Sydney CBD.
Its a area to sit and watch the sunrise or a cold beer or wine and a seafood meal, its my neighbourhood, it’s hard but someone has to live here. So if visiting Sydney forget the crowded bondi beach and take a drive north for the beauty of Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Yes this is my neighbourhood
