PEDESTRIAN.TV have partnered up with Sunglass Hut to help you make the most of the sunny season - and look on-trend while doing it.

We love the NSW South Coast. Sure, we could start an argument about whether or not the Central or the South Coast is the superior coast – has the best beaches, the best vibe, the best pie shop. But we’re not going to, because we – and you too, we know you do – already know the answer.

You might not have taken the time to drive through the bushland down the Grand Pacific Drive towards Melbourne. You may have never experienced the delights of Funland or Mogo Zoo or Jamberoo (WHERE YOU CONTROL THE ACTION).

Look as fine as Darcy by grabbing the Ray-Ban sunglasses he’s sportin’ from Sunglass Hut HERE.

You may not have gone winery-hopping or rented a massive house out for a weekend, traipsing around in thongs between the fish and chip shop and the beach. But if you’re looking for an early Autumn vacay, an excuse to dump your city lifestyle for the weekend and clear your head, why not grab your sunnies/car keys and GTFO of town and to the South Coast?

We recruited the expertise of junior boat captain, photographer and muso, D’Arcy Dineen, originally from the Sunshine Coast, to help us gush about what the NSW South Coast has to offer.

Royal National Park

Y’know those Figure Eight Pools lighting up the ‘Gram all summer? The natural rockpools are part of the Royal National Park in Sydney‘s south – and definitely worth a visit if you head along during ideal conditions: at low tide, with flat surf conditions. They’re a three to four hour walk away, so you could just check out somewhere a little more forgiving in the 151km² park – like whale watching near Bundeena on the Coastal Walk.

Stanwell Tops

You can swim or surf at Stanwell Park Beach at the northern tip of Wollongong, or look over the headland at Stanwell Tops for those dazzlin’ coastal views. Hanggliders and paragliders straight up soar over the cliffs – which you too can walk along. Or you can nip into the Apple Shack at Glenberrie Orchard for fresh and dried fruit and cider. And there is nothing as yummo and refreshing as country town cider.

Thirroul

There’s no place like home ✨

Thirroul boasts one of the best surf beaches on the coast, and surfers will froth on Finbox Supply Co, a board store and coffee shop, about a block up from the beach. It’s still worth a visit if you’re not all about catching waves, thanks to its ace coffee and toasted sandwiches. Lit junkies will be interested to know that one DH Lawrence (author of controversial 1928 novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover) lived here in 1922, writing much of Kangaroo.

Belmore Falls

Belmore Falls is a plunge waterfall, over three drops located a little inland, near Kangaroo Valley. The Falls range in height between 77 and 130 metres. Essentially: it’s magical. You can swim in it following an hour-long bushwalk – you’ll bloody deserve it, and there’s really nothing like climbing the rocks and floating under a waterfall – or you can just look over it from the Hindmarsh Lookout over the Valley.

Jervis Bay and Hyams Beach

B.E.A.C.H = Best Escape Anyone Can Have ????

If you’re looking to check out the Guinness World Record holder for the whitest sand in the world, try the idyllic Jervis Bay, approx three hours south of Sydney. This is an essential location if you’re into snorkelling, fishing, stand-up paddleboarding or an old-fashioned swim during the warmer months. As it gets colder you can read by the ocean, go bird-watching (also, look out for dolphins!), or just chill with a BBQ and your m8s.

Ray-Ban Sunnies, $195

You’re gonna need a snazzy pair of sunnies if you’re spending so much time out in the bright, bright sun. See what suits your sunnie disposition with our buds at Sunglass Hut HERE.
