Road Trippin – Day 7 – Sydney to Batemans Bay

Thank you Sydney for an awesome day and awesome weather. Today it’s time to head to Batemans Bay along the sunny and picturesque NSW coast stopping in Woolongong, Scarborough, Royal National Park, Kiama, Nowra, Milton, Ulladulla and finally Batemans Bay.

The weather was meant to be clear but once I got riding it was pretty cloudy and windy and not exactly safe to ride a motorcycle let alone a ride along the coast.

Heading out of Sydney via the Princess highway and turning left on to Farnell avenue brings you to the Royal National Park with smooth windy roads and very little traffic. Its a great ride which goes for a while once you hit the town of Lilyvale. From here on you will see beaches, picturesque towns, weekend markets and families relaxing and enjoying the weather.

Having arrived in Batemans Bay I checked into the Bridge Motel owned and run by Dave (pictured on my motorcycle below) and his wife Chris. They looked after me andΒ  were happy to accommodate for an additional unplanned day. Also laundry was free πŸ‘ I highly recommend staying here if you’re after a clean, no frills place to stay.







Tomorrow I take in the relaxing atmosphere of Batemans Bay. Ciao πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
