Making music in the forest at Jervis Bay, NSW

After our wonderful afternoon rock walk from Green Patch Beach to Scottish Rocks in Boorderee National Park, we drove to the top of the peninsula to Murray’s Beach.

Again, we were shown the exquisite beauty of this area. Endless beaches that could easily rank as Australia’s greatest.

Behind Murray’s Beach is a 20 minute walk up to the Governor Head Lookout. This is the place to come for views out to Bowen Island, the home of the local penguin colony, and for possible whales frolicking in the Pacific Ocean.

It was a windy day, so the sea was quite choppy, making it difficult to spot whales. But, the views were beautiful and the walk up through the forest was mystical and magical.

The setting couldn’t have made a better moment for our girls impromptu jam session with sticks and voices. What else do we really need to get the beat going and our toes tapping?

Kalyra took the lead by finding her two sticks, tapping away and setting the tune. Savannah, not one to miss out, and always to follow everything her older sister does, found her own tapping sticks.

Off they went marching through the forest singing, drumming and feeling the beat.

So adorable:

Really, who needs school when you have nature and our own imagination?

  1. How cute! And what a great place to make music in too. Just looks so incredible.

    Maybe Franca and I should start making music too during our treks, like our own personal soundtrack.

  2. Hi Caz and Craig,

    I’ve been meaning to comment for agggeees! It looks as if you’re all having an amazing time so far. Little moments like this must make you smile and realise that you’ve definitely made the right decision. We’d love to travel around Australia with our girls some time in the future so will follow your trip and take notes along the way 🙂

  3. Wow ! The place is so beautiful and the best place to feel the nature and its beauty. Good to see that Kalyra and Savannah enjoyed a lot.

  4. Hi, Just planning a Jervis Bay trip after reading all your blog posts. Do you know of any spots where we could spot dolphins from (without having to take a tour)? Thanks!
