Today we visited 90 students from the Bundnoon Public School. They are very creative and smart students. They asked a lot of questions and we recognized that they are very environmentally friendly. This, because they have wonderful parents, teachers and a perfect principal in Robyn Versluis. They all will participate in the TOPtoTOP climate solution contest.
Note: This TOPtoTOP event will be in the Southern Highlands News next Friday and Monday.

Just behind the school is the Morton National Park, where we saw our first wild Kangaroo. In the park is a deep gorge with high cliffs.

In Bundanoon Andrew Pardoe and Glenn Robinson offered us to stay in their very beautiful youth hostel, where we met Ellemiek van Dijken. She is from the Netherlands, travelling 8 months in Australia and joined us today as a volunteer in the school.

From Menai to Bundanoon we needed 4 days. The first day Mercedes Marbach joined us in the Royal National Park, where we continued our trip along the coast.

The Coledale Beach Camping Reserve invited us to stay overnight. Thank you very much Norman!

On the way to Wollongong we met another cyclist, Bred Martin. He raced once in Spain and invited us to camp in his garden. We cooked a Swiss Alpine dish to say thank you.

Early in the morning we had a very steep climb up to the Picton Road and than the temperature rose up to 35 degrees in the shadow!
In Wilton we got half a chicken in the Wilton Cafe & Take-Away. Some hours later we were very happy to jump into the cool pool of the Currie’s family and to put up our tent in front of their house.

Sometimes we are lost in this wide and beautiful country, … and once we were thinking we are cycling to the wrong TOP:

Tomorrow we start at 4 a.m. and hope to be with the Swiss Ambassador in the capitol of Australia, Canberra by Friday or Saturday. Contact us by phone or SMS: 04 23 45 02 55.
