Thanks to the mild and sunny Winter days in June, we spent most free time in the nature. Our friend Colin invited us to his favourite place in the Royal National Park, the second oldest in the world after Yellowstone in the US. Over the long weekend celebrating Queen’s birthday, we discovered the unexpected natural jewel of the Lane Cove National Park in the heart of the city where we stayed in a cottage. We also followed the Coastal Walk near Nielsen Park between Shark and Milk Beach. The biggest attraction in June is the illuminated festival Vivid in its tenth year.
