Australia’s best landscapes series: NSW Coastal Wilderness

The scenic route along the Tathra-Bermagui Road is one of the most spectacular self-drives on the far New South Wales South Coast.

Passing through spectacular spotted gum forests, the journey reveals unspoilt bays and beaches with idyllic picnic and camping spots to be found in the Mimosa Rocks National Park. At various points, Mumbulla Mountain, which is sacred to the Yuin people, can be seen to the north-west. A number of original timber bridges remain along the road, crossing some of the many creeks, lagoons and estuaries.

Along this route, you can taste the cheese that made Bega famous, as well as the delights of oysters from Tathra, checking in to deliciously indulgent spas and lodges along the way. Quality art galleries, creative artisan communities and plenty of local fine food and wine add further inspiration to this pretty coastal drive.

For an easy off-road four-wheel drive adventure, the Wingan Mallacoota Scenic Drive is an 82-kilometre trip through Alfred National Park to Croajinolong National Park, where you will find many walking tracks ranging from remote sandy beaches and heathlands to rocky coastline. Finish your holiday relaxing on the shores of beautiful Mallacoota Inlet in the heart of Australia’s Coastal Wilderness.
