    default The Princes Highway/Motorway - South of Sydney

    Post by Joy on Wed 11 Jun 2014, 3:09 pm

    A few weeks ago we ventured to the far south, that is to the Illawarra region of the South Coast. It is about 1000kms south of where we live. The first pics start after we had left the southern suburbs of Sydney & were heading down the steep motorway on the Illawarra escarpment. This part of the motorway was known as the Mount Ousley road but has since been renamed the M1 Princes Motorway. 

    We are travelling south from Sydney to Kiama on the NSW's South Coast along the Princes Motorway/Highway. That is the Tasman Sea in the foreground. The highway travels down the Illawarra Escarpment & is extremely steep. It is late afternoon hence the dark shadows cast by the hills.

    It would seem we are off the escarpment at last. That was rather stomach-churning when you are a passenger in a car travelling down such steep & winding inclines.
