    Johnny does Yaccaba

    Day 3 of my get-fit campaign. I find I get bored quickly with indoor exercise, so I try to get out and about as much as possible. Today’s plan is to climb a whopping big headland called Yaccaba, on the northern side of Port Stephens, NSW and take some pictures. 32o 41’ 48.23”S, 152o 11’ 55.19”E

    I arrive on the beach to see this lunatic trying to attract a Great White Shark. The place is a well known haunt for them, some as big as Volkswagens and much faster.

    Looks like fun.

    We have a bit of trouble with the dingoes here. A bit of 1080 knocks them over so that the tourists can feel safe. The dingoes and birds of prey aren’t that happy about it though.

    About halfway up you can see through the trees. The headland is at the end of a long sand peninsular with the ocean on one side, and Port Stephens on the other.

    There is some nice bush on this section of track, The Australian bush is quite beautiful in Spring.

    Some Staghorns. Great to see the young plants getting a hold despite the frequent tourist traffic.

    The last section gets a bit steep. I could feel my man-boobs shrinking on this climb. I had to stop for a couple of blows and half a gallon of water.

    The views from the top are very nice, but half blocked by trees. It would be a long way to carry a chainsaw.

    This is the southern headland of the port, called Tomaree.
