5-Day South Coast Tour
Tuesday 31st October to Saturday 4th November 2023
Day 01 (BLD) HOME TO NOWRA Tuesday 31 October 2023
Welcome to our 5-day tour to the picturesque South Coast. Sit back and enjoy the drive as we leave the area and head south to Gosford where we stop for lunch at the Gosford RSL. Continuing on we travel via the outskirts of Sydney reaching a spectacular section of road called the Grand Pacific Drive; crossing over-the-ocean Sea Cliff Bridge between Coalcliff and Clifton. This afternoon we stop into the pretty seaside town of Kiama and stop at the famous “Blowhole” which can spurt up to 60 metres high, this is a great opportunity for our group photograph. Leaving the coast slightly we visit the unique village of Berry. Berry is known as the town of trees and this description is very apt. Nestled below the rolling hills, the township is simply bursting with character and is awaiting our discovery. We enjoy time at leisure to explore this beautiful township. After a lovely day we check-in to our motel with time to freshen up before dinner.

Day 02 (BLD) NOWRA TO MERIMBULA Wednesday 01 November 2023
Some of the areas worst affected by the January bushfires are on - and around - the South Coast of New South Wales. Who will forget the images of Mogo – small villages decimated by the fires. We visit the Mogo Zoo - after closing for a couple of months after the fires. Here there are lions, giraffes, tigers, jaguars, snow leopards (the only breeding pair in the country), a variety of monkeys, red pandas, small, clawed otters to mention just some of the animals we will meet today. After enjoying lunch in Narooma, we travel to Cobargo, the township itself was one of the largest affected towns by the bushfires, luckily the wonderful Cobargo Farm was saved. We are here for a tour and afternoon tea. This unique open garden farm is on 16 acres on the outskirts of Cobargo’s historical working village. It produces fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as ferns, plants, flowers, and seedlings. Back on the coach we have about an hour drive to Merimbula where we check into our motel for the next 2 nights.
