After leaving Eden, I drove up the Sapphire Coast on Wednesday. I made several stops along the way. Starting with Pambula lake and then Pambula beach followed by breakfast at Merimbula. Merimbula is probably one of the bigger towns in that it has your usual shops and a busy town life. I enjoyed some pancakes for breakfast and then browsed through some stores including a book store — Booktique — and yes, I caved and bought a couple of books as well!
I continued to head north with Tathra being my next stop. It’s a very small town but so beautiful. There were several hikes that caught my eye and I realise I’m going to have to come back with some of my friends to camp and hike. I even checked out some campsites at Borunda National Park during some of my detours. There are several beaches and so many of them untouched. In some of the national parks, I was the only person around. A little bit creepy too but I definitely will be back with friends. I’m not that game to camp on my own!
Eventually, I made my way to Bermagui around 2 and got some ideas for short walks at the information centre. I went to a couple of the lookouts at Bermagui including the Blue Pool. I checked in to my cabin at Wallaga Lake and was spurred on to cook myself a proper dinner given that they had all the necessary kitchen equipment including a stove. I headed out to do some walks only to realise that they would have to be return walks to my car and would take longer than I expected, and because I wanted to hit the shops before it closed, I figured I’d just see some of the major points along the walks which I could get through to by driving.
I caught a spectacular sunset back at my accommodation by the lake. And finally, wound down for the night by cooking myself a steak and a salad. I really liked the accommodation at Bermagui. It was simple and yet so convenient. Had there been more to explore around the town, I probably would have stayed another night. But instead, I headed off this morning on my next adventure.
I will share my adventures in Tilba Tilba in my next post!
