One of the weekends in Australia, I took a trip south of Sydney to Canberra ( Australia’s capital), Kiama, and the Nan Tien Temple in Wollongong.
The first stop was Nan Tien Tiemple, a Buddhist temple. I’ve never seen a Buddhist temple as large as Nan Tien. It was huge and the landscaping was gorgeous! After Nan Tien, I headed to Kiama to check out the famous lighthouse and blowhole. After Kiama, off I went to Canberra, Australia’s capital. In Canberra, I saw the Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial, Black Mountain Tower, and Cockington Green Gardens. Cockington Green Gardens is a garden displaying cute models of houses, areas, and activities from all around the world. I felt like a giant in the garden!
Check out photos from my trip south of Sydney! WARNING: picture heavy
