Ovens natural park
We were all happy to learn the cottage we had rented wasn’t too far from oven’s park. I had always wanted to visit, but had never taken the chance. And wow- so glad we went! This place needs to be better promoted (if only I could get my hands on it!) – it is a gem and should be attracting millions of visitors per year. As it was, we only saw 2 other people on the trail with us.
So what is it? A walking trail along the coast that goes down into sea caves. The caves have been created by the ocean breaking down the slate cliffs. It was also the site of a gold rush in the 19th century and you can still pan for gold (and find some!).
I’ll let the photos do the rest.
