Home - Sydney - Nowra
Our Queensland passengers begin with a flight while our Hunter passengers are transferred to meet our coach, being welcomed on board by our friendly crew. After joining all together at Sydney Airport, we will make our way south, stopping for lunch along the way. Visit the Kiama Blowhole, and watch as it shoots water into the air with a loud 'oomph' as waves compress the air through the blowhole. Continue on to Nowra for our overnight stay.
Nowra - Bega - Merimbula
Today we travel along the coastline to Batemans Bay before continuing to Bega where we will enjoy lunch at the Bega Heritage Centre.

Enjoy a cheese tasting and talk about the history of dairying in the Bega Valley. This afternoon we will make our way to Merrimbula, a pristine location ideal for relaxing and exploring the surrounding region.
Look inside the old post office and exchange before taking a stroll along the Cathcart History Walk and Memorial Wall, following the plaques describing the history of this town. Continue on to Bombala where we stop for morning tea at the Riverbank Park before visiting Bombola Platypus Country Information Centre for a talk and viewing of the lavender distillation process. After lunch, return to Merimbula for some free time exploring this beachside town.
Perched on the edge of magnificent Twofold Bay, the third deepest natural harbour in the southern hemisphere, it is no wonder Eden was once considered as a site for Australia's national capital. This morning enjoy a Twofold Bay Discovery Cruise and after lunch, take some time to learn of the marine life the area is famous for, during a guided tour and hands on experiences at the Killer Whale Museum. Return to Merimbula with time to freshen up before dinner.

Next we take some time for a guided tour of St Mary's Catholic Church, an impressive Romanesque church built at the beginning of the 19th century.
