High Country to Cruising Coast
Drive through the ghost-white gums of the Snowy Mountains to Cooma, across the range and down to the lush hinterland areas of the NSW South Coast. After driving through the rolling green hills and stopping at small towns like Tilba Tilba and Mogo, you will discover long stretches of bush-fringed white sand beach. You might even spot a wallaby or two bouncing along the water’s edge.
In villages like Narooma and Tathra, there are co-ops selling freshly caught and harvested seafood and famous local oysters. The further south you go, the wilder things get. You'll be able to see seals, dolphins and whales from May to November. Pack your swimmers, fishing rod and thermals for the High Country because this trip offers everything from natural wonders through to human-made marvels like the Snowy River Hydro scheme.
