The story behind the video

Jelmer, Jeff and I left Melbourne in the morning, ready for our 36km overnight hike. We parked our car on Mount Oberon and started walking down the trail.

After a couple of hours, A kangaroo suddenly jumped out of the bush a meter next to us! And then a few minutes later Jeff almost stepped on a snake. Yek! Not a big snake luckily. It was on the middle of the path and was quite good camouflaged.

It’s been a long day and the sun was starting to set. Not knowing how much longer it was gonna us take us to make it to camp we were starting to stress out a bit. Setting up our tent and cooking in the dark is not something to look forward to. But just as the sun was starting to set we arrived at the beach.

It was dark by the time had set up our tent. Jeff was an awesome chef as always and was still able to cook an amazing camping meal in the dark.

We woke up to watch this beautiful sunrise on the white sanded beach. It’s in moments like these I feel most alive. Hiking, camping and watching the sunrise. And of course taking photos and videos of it all.

We left the beach and continued hiking. The track was up and downhill the whole time and it was starting to get really warm too.

We past Refuge Cove and a few hours later arrived at Sealers Cove. It was time for a swim to cool down. It was so nice and I just wanted to stay there forever.

We hiked back to our car watching the sunset through the trees.

The blue dots is the loop we did. Starting at Mount Oberon (red dot left) and staying at Little Waterloo Bay (red dot right).

I really enjoyed the hike and exploring beautiful beaches along the way. I would love to come back and hike all the way south!
