  • Whales!

    by loufromoz Written Jul 6, 2005

    Favorite thing: I'd been to Eden many times before but usually in summer, and never during the whale watching season. In future my visits there will always be in September-November.

    Fondest memory: On our last day in Eden a small pod of whales came right into the bay and frolicked near the rocks just below where we were staying - accompanied by 2 or 3 dolphins! We'd planned ot set off early for home, but ended up staying a few more hours to watch them play.

    Tilba Tilba

    Favorite thing: This is the quaint little arts and crafts town of Tilba Tilba, also close to the New South Wales coast, south of Nowra.

    We found this delightful place quite by accident. There are some quite unusual local and also overseas crafts (such as South American and Tibetan shops). The Bakery is very popular and very nice.

    A tiny but thriving town, well worth visiting.

    Ulladulla Beach

    Ulladulla Beach

    Favorite thing: This is actually a nice beach....but this was taken during the Sydney Bushfires (the 2002 ones not the current lot). Sydney is 300 - 400 kms up the coast from here, but the thick smoke still hangs and makes visibility very poor, and even worse for photography (in some cases not even worth getting out the camera).

    For instance, at Narooma, a little south of here, we took a ride on a little inflated power boat to go out and swim with the Seal colony at Montague Island. The boat captain had 20 years experience...but the 15 min. journey turned into well over an hour as we got hoplelessly lost...and I become hopelessly ill into the bargain! And then when we reached the seals they were too hot in the shallow water so swam away from us....

    Fondest memory: Best memory of Narooma? Getting back onto dry land after the inflatible boat ride from hell!!!
    On a good, smokeless, calmer and cooler day though, I'd highly recommend this activity. Even if you don't swim with the seals, you see them on the rocks at very close range.

    Bega Cheese Factory

    by Kate-Me Written Mar 11, 2003
    Bega Cheese Factory

    Favorite thing: The Bega Cheese factory is located in an area dominated by the Dairy Industry.

    It's worth a visit and you can sample many of the huge range of cheeses they produce.
    You can also observe cheese being processed in the factory. There's a souvenir shop too.

    Bega hills

    Bega

    Favorite thing: This is the hillside area around the town of Bega, a little inland and approximately 20 kms north of Merimbula.
    I like the green rolling hills.
    Even in the southern states of Australia, with the exception of Tasmania, it doesn't often get this green, except in the very middle of winter.

    Water views all over town

    by Kate-Me Written Mar 11, 2003

    Favorite thing: My favorite thing about Merimbula is the water. Crystal clear, always seems to be blue and sunny (and indeed it is popular with Victorians because the weather is generally nicer and more reliable)

    You can wander the town and see the water just about all the time.

    At Eden, you can see the fishing boats at the little port and go out on a boat with the chance to see whales. The town is smaller, but still quite nice and quaint, whereas Merimbula is much larger and trendy.
