Sydney Melbourne Coastal Drive
This park is located in two sections, north and south of Eden on the far South Coast. Don't miss Green Cape Lightstation, the spectacular Light to Light Walk and camping at Saltwater Creek and Bittangabee Bay in the south. Pinnacles and breathtaking views from Haycock Point are highlights in the north.
Meandering drive from Sydney to Melbourne
What better way to explore the South Coast of NSW than on a drive from Sydney along the coast to the Victorian border?
Pretty seaside towns and historic villages, a string of quiet beaches and bays and more than 30 national parks and reserves contribute to the pleasures of this drive.
The food is great too. Rich dairy pastures are the source of some of Australia's finest cheeses, and you're never far from a winery. The seafood is fresh, local and succulent and eating out can be very enjoyable.
The highlights of the trip are many and varied but there are few not to miss. They include Jervis Bay's white sand beaches and crystal clear waters, Montague Island and its fur seal colonies, and Eden, famous for it's whaling history and now, for its whaleâwatching cruises.
