The campground at Dalmeny was a community in itself and saying goodbye was a bit sad, but we have a long way to go and do not want to have to rush. So we set off heading south through the Eurobodalla National Park, passing through Mystery Bay stop starting through roadwork’s all the way to Tilba. The winding road through the ranges is being streamlined removing some of the sharp turns. Tilba is a small quaint, but pretty town nestled into the valleys of the ranges. Bermagui, a much larger town, is located on Wallaga Lake and river mouth. Very much a fishing town, with a large boat harbour and surrounded by State Forest.
Cobargo was next with some dairy cattle pastures, but mainly surrounded by State Forest and the Warrigal Ranges as is Quaama and Bega. Bega was by far the largest town and where we decided to stop to food shop and wander around the city centre. Millers $16.95 sale was in full swing, so of course I had to have a look there as well :).
From Bega, we travelled through Wolumla on to the Yellow Pinch Dam campsite, which had a tick in the Camps 5 book, but we were very disappointed. Very small camp ground which meant not many camp spots, and from our perspective no ambience. We stopped for lunch, thought about it and then decided to continue on to another campsite. We had not travelled far when we saw a sign advertising campsites for self-contained RV’s and caravans on Millingandi Station, so in we went. For $20 per night we had power and water in a huge paddock, with 3 other caravans and a 5th Wheeler.
We setup camp, then drove into Merimbula to check out the town and surrounds. Merimbula is another substantial town, with all the large food and clothing shops.
During the morning I had received a text from NONI B telling me about their 30% off sale and I had commented to Derick that I had not seen a NONI B shop for some time. Well there it was in the main street of Merimbula, I was very proud of myself, Derick asked if he should park the car and I said no just keep on driving :)….
