Start from either Sydney or Canberra to experience the fine food and awe-inspiring beauty of the country and coast between the two cities. On your first day, you’ll start to unwind as you explore the fine dining and art in Bowral. On day two you’ll wind through country villages - including Goulburn, Australia’s first inland city - before ending up in the classic gold rush town of Braidwood.
Head for the coast on day three and experience the amazing beaches of the NSW South Coast and sample the great regional produce. There’s time for water sports and whale watching on day four, as well as more exquisite food. You won’t want this trip to end, so why not extend your stay for an extra day to explore more coastal villages before you return to Bowral or drive to Sydney via the Grand Pacific Drive.
