Sapphire Coast Hinterland
You’ll be enchanted by the good old-fashioned country hospitality and winding country drives through country towns like Wyndham, Cobargo, Candelo and Bemboka. It is a charming landscape, where coast meets country and country meets bush. Here you can step back into yesteryear where locals stop for a chat, communities exist and life is savoured slowly with an air of tranquility.
Your holiday could include a scenic drive through the rich farming land of Candelo, the wooded Myrtle Mountain and the picturesque township of Wyndham. Stop for a stroll through the Goodenia Rainforest, a short walk to the viewing platform of the Six Mile Creek or for those more energetic, a hike up the scared Aboriginal ground of Myrtle Mountain.
Have lunch in a historic pub; tempt your tastebuds with fresh produce served at local cafes or buy organic at one of the local markets. Shop for leather and pottery at the charming, historic village of Cobargo before heading north to Tilba. Treat yourself to a tour of Foxglove Spires; a recognised gem amongst Australian gardens, then browse the quaint nursery and antique shops or pause for refreshment at the adjoining café. Drive the picturesque, winding road to Central Tilba where you’ll find local artist’s galleries and shops selling crafts, pottery, antiques and gifts.
The Far South Coast is home to a rich, eclectic group of artists and crafts people who choose to live in the peaceful retreat of country villages. Be sure not to miss their talents while soaking up the scenic views and country hospitality. Snatch a taste of South Coast country life – you’ll never know just what you’ll find!
