I gotta say, road trips are so so good for the soul. I packed up a couple of knitting projects and knitted in the car but soon realised that I was missing out on the beautiful and interesting view along the way. If you absolutely must keep your hands busy, I would suggest making something with lots of repetitions so you could commit that to your muscle memory without needing to focus on your hands too much.

This is not a guide by any means but more of a shortlist of places that you might like to visit while you’re there. Without further ado, here are a few places that stood out to me during our stay:

  1. Blue Pool, Bermagui: A stunning rock pool that should not be missed, even if swimming is not your thing! Think Bondi Iceberg’s but without the social pressure.
  2. Cuttagee Beach, Bermagui: Hidden gem. I told Mr M that I wanted a holiday home that overlooks this beach. He still hasn’t given me an answer yet.
  3. Bermagui Gelati Clinic: Mr M said he had the best date ice-cream, EVER! We made our way back twice to cool ourselves down in the sweltering heat.
  4. Mister Jones Espresso: We LOVE this cafe. We just felt so incredibly relaxed there. I also love the fact that it shares its walls with Matt Chun, an awesome artist and illustrator.
  5. Tanja Open Studios: We stumbled upon a beautiful open space in the bush and was instantly captivated by the ceramics that were on display. I don’t have too much info on the artist when we were there but I would imagine that the studio is a host to a variety of artists all year long.
  6. Antiques in the bush: Once again we just chanced upon one of the best antique shops I’ve ever been to in the bush! I’ll put a photo on Insta for you as I don’t even know where the exact location is!
  7. Secluded beaches: So many of these, perfect for relaxing and soaking in the salty air.

Traveling within Australia isn’t cheap but it’s well worth the expenses. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, there are plenty of campsites available. This is a fantastic option for families with young kids because kiddos generally don’t mind a bit of adventure.

Those few days at South Coast were more than I could ever ask for. I look forward to sharing more of Australia with you in the future!
