Easter 2011 – Bermagui

Posted by David McKell On April - 28 - 2011

5 day long weekend this year, what a waste to stay at home. We decided to break the weekend up into parts. First the friday and saturday somewhere and come back for dinner Saturday night, Sunday lunch and Dinner then back off again for Monday/Tuesday. We didnt know where we were going until the morning of each day which was half the fun of it I guess.


We left Canberra at about 1030am Friday morning down the Monaro Hwy to Cooma, Bega then onto Bermagui. The roads were fairly busy to Cooma with lots of other holiday traffic, but from Bega right though to Bermagui it was a nice clear run. The GPS led us from Bega along a dirt road to Bermagui for a good 20KMs which funnily enough was nice. Was a quiet peaceful road with only 2 other cars that went past us.



Once back on the tar it was a great relaxing drive to Bermagui and the campsite. The caravan park was really nice located between Lake Wallaga and the ocean. There were plenty of free camp sites availiable access to the amenities. However getting the car to the camp site proved troublesome being as low as it is it would scrape on almost everything.



Saturday morning after checking out we decided to drive home back up the coast. We drove past Tilba which had what seemed like some festival going on. We decided to drive in only to be directed by the local girl scouts to some grassed parking however again the car was too low and there was more unpleasant scrapping. We didnt end up going into the festival but it was a nice area.



From Tilba we kept heading up the coast to Narooma where we had a morning tea and swim.



After that headed to a friends place in Sunshine Bay for a quick break before a drive back through Batemans Bay, the Clyde Mountain and home. Was a great few days away.
