Merimbula is located on the Far South Coast of NSW, Australia and is the jewel on the Sapphire Coast. Getting here from Sydney is a relatively painless five to six hour journey along one of the county’s most dramatic and appealing stretches of coastal road. There are plenty of places to stop and take in the scenery along the way to break up the drive including the snow white sands of Jervis Bay, quaint fishing owns that time as forgotten, thriving rural centres and national parks and forests nearly every exit.
Stop for lunch and enjoy some of the nation’s freshest seafood right from the source as you marvel over the seemingly endless expanse of the forests and beaches. If you’re coming from Melbourne, don’t worry there is plenty for you to see along the way also, from the stunning surrounds of Lake’s Entrance to the infamous Ninety Mile Beach. One thing is for sure, you’ll be too busy taking in the scenery to worry about how many hours you have left to drive!
