South Coast Drive

If you are dreaming of a leisurely drive stopping at historic fishing ports to sample local oysters and seafood, to swim from white sandy beaches and walk through national parks with stunning ocean views the coast road between Sydney and Melbourne is just perfect for you if you aren't in a hurry and have time to stop and explore, enjoy the beaches and turn off to discover little country towns inland.

Places like Kiama, Bateman's Bay, Eden, Ulladulla, Narooma, Bermagui and Tathra are some of the better known areas for seafood including lobsters, prawns and oysters and fishing is possible almost everywhere from the South Coast's rocks and rivers, lakes, jetties, beaches as well as off-shore. Whale watching is available from Eden and many other ports and the waters of the South Coast are particularly rich in marine life.

One of the many treasures of the area is little Montague Island, home to a colony of fairy penguins, fur seals and many varieties of sea birds. Historic towns to visit include Central Tilba and Cobargo and there are many museums and galleries up and down the coast including the Naval aviation Museum at Nowra and Arthur Boyd's Bundanon with a stunning collection of paintings.

Don't forget that, as well as its delicious seafood, the South Coast is known for its fresh produce available in cafes and restaurants from Wollongong to Eden. Some of the tempting detours along the way include the country town of Berry, the beautiful Kangaroo Valley and Jervis Bay.
