Taking Directions

Spring 2014

Leaving Newcastle, NSW, Gabbi Garmin tries hard to take us via the coast road rather than the Expressway. We lose about twenty minutes trying to get back onto the southbound expressway. We ask ourselves why we are heading south as the air smells of exhaust fumes, the traffic noise is deafening then we crawl through the Pennant Hills bottleneck. Eventually, we join the M7 and in minutes we’re away from Sydney and down in the Southern Highlands.

Crossing the Hawkesbury River (between Newcastle and Sydney)

2021 Note: The Pennant Hills bottleneck has now been removed but thanks to Covid we haven’t been game to go anywhere near it since the tunnel completion.
