Stockton Beach Sunset, Newcastle

A few months ago my husband and I spent a weekend in our hometown, Newcastle and I am ashamed to admit that in the twenty-something years I’ve lived in the city, this was the first time I had ever stepped foot on Stockton Sand Dunes, an iconic natural phenomena located a mere 40-minutes drive from my childhood home. Ridiculous, I know.

And as I ready myself for another weekend of waterfall chasing and wandering through rainforest hinterlands, I cannot believe how much ground I have covered within such a short period of time. Which is…
