Newcastle and Sussex Inlet (continued)

I reckon one gets a wonderful impression watching this 2 and a half minute video about Newcastle’s Merewether Beach.   This video was made in 2015:

“From Plan to Place – Sea Change@ Merewether Beach precinct.
Merewether Beach is one of Newcastle’s famous beaches and has been designed as a National Surfing Reserve.”

As I said in a previous post – –

we had lunch in Newcastle at beaches cafe. We had this view from the terrace of the cafe:

Martin had ordered baby octupus


I had four prawn cutlets. They were delicious. The chips and salad were good too. After lunch we went down to the beach for coffee and ice-cream:

And now back to my post about Sussex Inlet:

Diary, August 2017

Just one week ago we arrived there and stayed only for the weekend. We had booked three units. Each unit could accommodate four adults plus two children. There were only in one unit some children, that is,  there were of course our lovely great-grandsons: Lucas (5) and Alexander (nearly 3). Unfortunately no-one did take a group picture. But we are going to have a great memory about this weekend anyway.

It says that the wildlife should not be fed by us!

  1. I love seeing your photos of your travels and adventures!
    You are taking me to places I will never get to go…but, wish I could. (I live in the USA, in The West and have only traveled in the USA and Mexico.)
    Oh, I wonder what octopus tastes like. ??? In California we have great fish and seafood. I’ve had just about everything but octopus.
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  2. Hi HUGS!!! 🙂
    I never had octopus either. I don’t think it would be my cup of tea. But I’m glad I had the prawn cutlets. They were really delicious. 🙂
    We did once an around the world trip and stopped at Anaheim for a few days. We had there a great time at Disneyland together with our daughter who was 11 at the time. 🙂
    We traveled often within NSW, Victoria and also Queensland. But there are huge parts of Australia that we haven’t seen yet! 🙂
    We’ve been back to Germany a few times over the years. We still have family in Germany. 🙂
