For Yellowstone fans, few performances can top that of Gil Birmingham as Broken Rock patriarch Thomas Rainwater. Many of the show’s best lines come courtesy of Rainwater (which we’ll get into below). But first, the actor’s latest real-life exploits are absolutely worth checking out.
“Hey kids, I have been very blessed to have traveled a bit this year to some incredible locations and thought I’d share some of my adventures with you,” posts the Yellowstone Icon to his official Instagram Thursday.
“Here’s a collage of Bronte Beach NSW Australia. Beautiful country,” Birmingham offers. His images deliver, too, as you can see below. Within the actor shares morning, evening, and night shots of Bronte Beach in a collage. Beautiful, indeed!
A popular tourist destination, New South Wales’ Bronte Beach lies east of Sydney, Australia’s city center. There, famous long-distance ocean events are held every December, between Bronte and nearby Bondi Beach.
Bronte boasts gorgeous shore and resorts, but also breathtaking rocky cliffs. There’s even a 30-metre ocean pool, which is one of Sydney’s best known swimming spots. Pair this with the areas lauded cafes, and you have the recipe for a terrific Australian holiday. And Gil Birmingham’s Instagram post confirms it!
