For our week away together this year, we are planning to explore the South Coast of NSW.
Accommodation will be at Mystery Bay Cottages, located on the coast just south of Narooma. The cottages are set on a quiet rural property, within walking distance of two beaches and national parkland. We have currently reserved all accommodation on the property, which comprises 6 two-bedroom cottages and a three-bedroom house. This will give us a total of 8 queen bedrooms and 7 twin bedrooms, with a maximum capacity of 30 people. Each cottage has cooking facilities and there is a common BBQ area. Check it out at: (www.mysterybaycottages.com.au).
The cost will depend on the number of participants, but a preliminary estimate is $350 – 400 per person for the week.
The drive is approximately 5hrs 15mins from the North Shore. We will try to optimise car pooling and will have photo stops on the way.
Photographic opportunities will range from dramatic coastal scenery (including Camel Rock at Bermagui), to quiet rockpools and beach life; Maculata forest; the hinterland with its rolling hills and the heritage villages of Tilba Tilba and Central Tilba; and a profusion of birds and wildlife, including seal colonies and penguins on Montague Island. We also plan to visit Mogo Zoo en route.
The itinerary will be flexible and relaxed, so that we can ‘do our own thing’ during the daytime and find some interesting options for eating together in the evenings and sharing our photographic experiences.
