While driving through New South Wales, Australia, I was lucky enough to spend one glorious afternoon at Pebbly Beach. This isn't your typical beach. The beach is located in a national park (Murramarang National Park) and the lush foliage from the forests serves as the backdrop to this beautiful beach. The best part is, the beach is known for kangaroos!! Unlike horses, they don't bite!
