Lost highway

Posted by Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 2 September 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Decades ago, a storm washed away this road near Bermagui on the South Coast. Long since closed to cars, nature has gradually reclaimed the asphalt. In this shot, you can see one of the few sections where the white lines down the middle of the road are still visible. Although an abandoned highway, it now serves as a walking and mountain bike trail. It is a very pleasant trek of several km behind the beach and sand dunes. In my next post, you will see the proximity to the beach.
