We got the chance to head back to one of the most beautiful locations on the Sapphire Coast this weekend exactly a year after we had shot it last. Wonboyn and Nadgee are just an hour south of us. Beautful, remote, tranquil- this little village and the neighbouring nature reserve are the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Last time we were here we stopped at the jetty in Wonboyn for the sunrise before heading off to explore the beaches. This time we did it the other way around. We watched the sun come up in the same location as one of our most popular images and enjoyed ourselves immensely capturing the break of day on the last beach you can drive to in NSW.
On our way back to the village we stopped off to explore the very easy Jewfish walk. Most of the path is boardwalk over the lake foreshore and the reward at the end is a beautiful vista opening up before you taking in Wonboyn Lake. Ideal for fishermen and photographers. We’ll definitely head back again one day soon to get sunrise from this very spot and maybe spend the day with a telephoto lens and capture some bird life.
Back at the jetty and boat ramp there were so many wonderful choices for subjects for photography we were spoilt for choice. We were also lucky enough to enjoy a great conversation with a local who filled us in on some stories and secret locations.
A visit to Wonboyn is a must if you are on the Sapphire Coast and you love relaxed atmospheres, beautiful fresh oysters, fishing, bushwalking and exploring remote beaches.
