Road Trippin – Day 9 – Batemans Bay to Eden

It’s time to hit the road again after a very relaxing stay in Batemans Bay. I wasn’t sure if I should head to Canberra, the nation’s capital city and then on to the Snowy Mountains or carry on the coastal journey. Given that I’ve visited Canberra not too long ago and having done a fair bit of mountain riding I thought I’d stick with the coastal theme and head to Eden NSW.

The ride to Eden took me to several quaint towns namely Bodalla which has a dairy and a cool looking outdated pub which looked like it had been shut down and was out of service to the public.

I also rode through Tilba Tilba and the very famous town of Bega, thanks to the delicious cheese made there. At the Bega restaurant I got stuck into a cheese toastie and coffee and on my way out I helped myself to a box of assorted fudge. I highly recommend visiting the cheese factory at Bega.

Originally founded as a whaling station, today Eden is best known for whale watching with a Killer Whale museum and a beautiful coastline.

Arriving in Eden, I checked into the Halfway Motel which is in a great location, close to the service station and Coles and a two minute walk to the restaurants and bars just up the road. The room was clean with air conditioning and the bed very comfortable. It was a bit on the pricey side though for a motel.

After checking in I decided to head out for a walk down main street and check out the local attractions including the whale museum. Entrance was $10 and you have access to the history of the town and the people who made it famous, including the whales that were killed. Seriously, there is history about a famous killer whale!

The main street of Eden has plenty of locations that detail the history of this tiny town.

Here are some shots of the main street itself.

And now for some selfies of me!! Why?? Just cause 😜
