This is my entry to an illustrated map contest curated by They Draw and Travel and Stroly. This map shows the Shoalhaven area in New South Wales, Australia, one of the most magical place in the world and one that has changed my life! I have met people there that have been so inspiring and I've experienced so many great things that it literally influenced the way I live today. Nowhere else in the world have I seen so many pristine beaches and native wildlife in such a small area. Can you believe that there are more than 100 beaches in less than 160km (100miles) of coastline?! And how about meeting kangaroos, wombats, cockatoos, dolphins, whales and many more birds and animals on a daily basis?! You thought that would be it but you can also see powerful blowholes, impressive waterfalls, visit significant cultural places, eat at great vegetarian cafes, bushwalk in preserved National Parks, surf great waves...
