Yarra Bay

Yarra Bay is one of the smaller bays of Botany Bay and is part of the suburb of Phillip Bay. That's a lot of bays. Yarra Bay Sailing Club is the only building down near the beach and Yarra Bay House is a historic house up on the hill behind the bay.

  1. I know it is across the water but this photo makes me homesick for my home in Shelly Beach on the Kaipara Harbour, New Zealand. One of my favourite photos tonight,

  12. At first I thought it was a private house and I was about to say how lucky the owners are to live in such a place! :-)

  15. The water is so calm and pretty. I prefer a bay sometimes, so I don't have to fight annoying waves.

  16. Tricia, it's a nice spot for a swim because there aren't any waves.
    Linnea, Yarra Bay is a bit secluded compared to some of the other beaches on Botany Bay. Also, it was a weekday and it was actually a bit cool that day so that's why there weren't that many people on the beach. Mind you, what we consider to be cool weather in Sydney is probably quite warm to people in other parts of the world.

  17. Beautiful! I love how the house reflects on the water and how crystal clear the water is. It looks so peaceful! Sigh!
