Last Saturday I got to enjoy a slice of Tuscany in Australia. About a 150 km north from where I stay in Sydney, is this emerald paradise, a popular wedding photography location called Gerringong – Rolling green hills, acres and acres of grassy land and a spectacular view of the azure sea. Add to the mix a crisp cerulean sky, and you get a perfect one day weekend getaway. As we are at the tail end of winter, the weekend was blessed with a balmy weather and cool winds.
Packed with water bottles, hot drinks and warm clothes (in case the weather bailed on us) we drove towards Gerringong. I always stop by Mt Pleasant, even if it’s for few minutes. This view is so much similar to the ones I used to paint with my little fingers when I was kid. Tell me if you don’t feel refreshed already.

We drove past Werri Beach, towards the rock pool, looking for a good vantage point.
Luckily, the car park wasn’t too busy. Although I was excited to see the scenery from the top, the hill was quite steep. I was out of breath by the time I reached the top. But it was the view that really made me breathless.
I love how benches are placed at proper spots for visitors to sit and enjoy the scene.
When the wild wind blows and the leaves turn, a tree changes its colors.
We walked further and came across Gerringong Cemetery. You can reach this spot by driving too as a car park is available nearby.
