Exploring South Coast including Ulladulla, Mollymook and Jervis Bay

Lake Burrill is approximately 300km south of Sydney. August is a great time of the year to explore southern highlands as the weather is quite cold at night and days are warm and sunny at this time of the year.  The roads are not very crowded and it is quite easy to find accommodation along the coast. Lake Burrill and surrounding regions are popular for fishing all year round.  

Driving from Sydney to Jervis Bay and Ulladulla

The beautiful drive takes you through Wollongong, Kiama, Berry, Nowra and finally Ulladulla. Life in these coastal towns is quite laid back and relaxed and offers quite a pleasant change from the busy and crowded life of Sydney. Berry is an old market town with beautiful buildings dating back to the mid-nineteenth century. You will find nice cafes, restaurants and country-style pubs.

The road passes through the rolling hills of Shoalhaven country finally reaching lakes near Ulladulla. Coomee Nullunga Cultural Trail is an interesting cultural site created by the local Aboriginal Land Council. Morton national park in this region offers a great opportunity for bushwalking and hiking.

The coastal region in summers is packed with sea and water sports and activities including ocean charters, whale watching, swimming & surfing.

A detailed guide map is provided on arrival. The whole area can be covered in a day but needs more time if you want to go through popular walkways and spend time on the beautiful beaches.

In summers the water flows in ripples and offers a great opportunity to swim and explore the area around Jervis Bay. In winters, the water is cold and the ocean can get a bit choppy depending on the time of the year.

I have been exploring South-East Asia for over twenty years and have visited some of the best destinations in the region. Through my blog, I want to share some interesting travel tips, my experience of driving across Asian destinations and some of the best places to explore in this region. I have undertaken hundreds of road trips, across Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. Most of the information in this blog comes through my own road trips and adventures in the exotic locations I have visited. 

I have, in the past followed in Anthony Bourdain's footsteps and visited most of the restaurants his team explored in their shows. Join in on my adventures and follow my trails on Instagram & Facebook Page.
