Well wanderers, Downunder I learnt that the blue haze comes from something called ‘Rayleigh Scattering’ a phenomenon investigated by Lord Rayleigh that causes rays of light that impinge on small particles to scatter in various directions. As the atmosphere is laden with dust and water particles, the eyes receive a blue, scattered reflection of the distant object (mountains in this case), and therefore! Are the mountains blue 😀.

Just three hours south of Sydney, Jervis Bay boasts some of the most idyllic coastal scenery in Australia. Visitors to Jervis Bay are met with pristine beaches, creeks, lagoons and hidden coves. Popular activities in the area include swimming, surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, fishing, standup paddle boarding, and even whale watching—humpback whales can often be spotted resting in the calm waters of Jervis Bay from June to November.

 

Slightly further inland, you’ll find plenty of bushwalking and cycling tracks, camping grounds, displays of Indigenous culture, and spectacular cliff-top lookouts. The small towns and villages scattered throughout the area host everything from local farmers’ markets to art galleries and fine dining restaurants.
