The south coast of New South Wales is a truly remarkable area, with gorgeous beaches and charming seaside villages. Inland, there's mighty mountains and unspoilt forests. This drive lets you experience all of it.

Heading south from Sydney down the famous Hume Highway, you'll reach the quaint Southern Highlands. With its brisk morning mists and lush wooded mountains, the Highlands have long been a favourite weekend refuge for well-heeled Sydneysiders.

Be sure to drop into the historic village of Berrima, and the country-chic town of Bowral - an especially pretty area during the famous tulip festival.

Further south through the Southern Tablelands, you'll see the picturesque village of Bungendore, before travelling into Canberra.

Heading east again, and on reaching the coast you'll find Batemans Bay - a town renowned for surfing, boating, snorkeling and fishing.

The drive passes through the fishing haven of Bermagui, before ending at the aptly-named seaside paradise of Eden.
