Canberra is only two hours’ drive to the New South Wales south coast with its stunning scenery, unspoiled beaches and quaint towns.
Take a weekend road trip from Canberra to get a glimpse of the Eurobodalla region’s national parks, boutique stores and local seafood delights.
Day 1 – Saturday
Take your pick of delicious, wholesome breakfasts and heart-starting coffee at one of the many cafes in Braddon. Try the Elk and Pea Eating House, Paleo Cafe or Lonsdale Street Roasters. Wander the shops to stretch your legs before hitting the road to the south coast of New South Wales.Visit Braddon
Grab your walking shoes, water bottle, sunscreen and binoculars and explore the Bingi Dreaming Track. Start at Tuross Head in the south and see how much of the 14km walk you can do. Stop along the way for a swim, a picnic or even some whale watching if the season is right (migration takes place from May to November each year).Visit Eurobodalla
A welcoming and picturesque coastal town, you’ll instantly relax when you sit down beside the spectacular Tuross River at the Pickled Octopus Seafood Cafe. Order the freshest seafood on offer to devour while you watch the sun set.
You can find accommodation options close by in Tuross, Tilba, Moruya and Broulee.Visit Tuross Head
Day 2 – Sunday
Head to the cheese factory in Central Tilba for delectable cheeses, yoghurts, milk and cream from the local Jersey cows living happily amongst the rolling green pastures of the region. You’ll also find charming antique and gift stores – home to local artists and craftspeople.Visit Central Tilba
A short detour off the highway will bring you to Tilba Valley Wines, where you can taste their selections of Semillon, Chardonnay, Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon at the cellar door. With a regular program of Sunday lunches in the vineyard with live music on the lawn, you’ll want to stay all afternoon.Visit Tilba Valley Wines
