90th birthday tour surprise – Beryl + Lyn 29.12.22

The 90th birthday tour surprise was organised by Beryl’s daughter Lyn. Lyn wanted something memorable for her mum, something to make the birthday special. That’s where we come in ?.


“Dear Katrina,
Had a wonderful time today, you made Mum’s 90th birthday very special, Brian was a great driver and looked after us very well. 

We’re happy for you to post to socials.

Kind Regards”

Our trike rider Brian, picked the passengers up from home in Gymea, part of The Shire. They went on an interesting 1 hour tour.


Firstly, they rode east to Kurnell. Kurnell is the place where Captain James Cook landed on 29 April 1770, making first contact with the original inhabitants of the area, whilst navigating his way up the East Coast of Australia on the Endeavour. Captain Cook along with his crew stayed at Kurnell for a period of eight days. During their visit they collected botanical specimens, mapped the area and tried to make contact (unsuccessfully) with the indigenous population. When Cook reported back to England he said that the land was suitable for agriculture and was lightly wooded.

Then they rode west and past Kurnell Beach. A small but lovely beach but it’s closed over winter due to rifle range operations. So far, the 90th birthday tour surprise was fun and memorable.

Elouera Beach Cronulla

Riding off the headland, they rode to Elouera Beach and stopped at The Wall for photos. The Wall is the local name given to the area between North Cronulla Beach and Elouera Beach.

“The Prince Street seawall – better known as The Wall – was considered to be indestructible when it was built between North Cronulla and Elouera beaches in 1985. It replaced a previous concrete, perpendicular structure which was wrecked by a huge storm in 1974.” https://www.theleader.com.au/story/5017241/photos-flashback-friday-the-wall/ Elouera is an Aboriginal word meaning a pleasant place.


Next, they headed slightly south to Cronulla. Numerous surf beaches and swimming spots are at Cronulla. It has one of Sydney’s famous beaches and it’s a nice one.

However, the 1 hour was up so Brian rode the passengers back home. In conclusion, the 90th birthday tour surprise was a huge success. Feel the Freedom at 90!
