We live south of Wollongong and Bulli Beach is north of Wollongong. From where we live to Bulli Beach is a fifteen minutes drive by car. So why did we book into a cabin at Bulli Beach when we can drive there from where we live any day really? The answer is simple. We need at least thirty minutes to go to this particular beach and back home again. Would we do this every day? No way. Most people don’t go to the beach regularly even if they live within walking distance. It is really quite different if you rent accommodation right next to the beach.
We had been staying at lots of other beaches before in different parts of Australia. Last year I had booked into hospital for a day-only procedure (biopsies on tongue). I had to leave the admission forms at Bulli Hospital. On that same day we went down to the beach to stay in that little cabin for three nights. I was happy we could do that. I found the place perfectly good for a little vacation. Why travel long distances for a three night stay when you have a beautiful beach close by?
Of course there are lots of other beaches all the way up and down the coast. Australia is blessed with numerous beaches. And all the beaches are open to the public! We spent lovely holidays at other beaches too. But last year, just a few months before my operation, we had this lovely time at Bulli Beach. Can’t wait to do something similar again.

In October 2010 we stayed at this cabin at Bulli Beach for three nights
I am going to republish now a few pictures from our stay at Bulli Beach.
