Probus Tours
MONDAY 15th March. (B {continental} D)
BATEMAN’ BAY, NAROOMA to EDEN
Leaving Bateman’s Bay we continue down the coast to Narooma and a cruise with a difference. On Wagonga Inlet we board the Wagonga Princess. This vessel is not only Electrically-powered and
whisper-quiet, but also environmentally-friendly.Whilst cruising we learn about local Aboriginal culture and the European Inlet history.
Today we will have time to purchase lunch in the town of Narooma before continuing our journeyalong the coast to the port of Bermagui. This town was once a major ‘steamer’ port on the coast. It became a popular fishing location after a visit by the well-known author Zane Grey. We continue along the south coast through Tathra, Merimbula and then Pambula to Eden for the next three
nights.

LEAVING THE CITY

Another excitng adventure with our Probus friends.Our journey on this trip takes us back to the South Coast of NSW, a region devastated by the savage bushfires that engulfed a large portion of the state in 2020. Leaving home we travel south along the Hume Highway into Goulburn, where we leave the highway and venture towards the coast. Following our cuppa, we travel along the Kings Highway that connects Canberra with the holiday location of Bateman’s Bay. We cross the Clyde River in Nelligen, this area was once a major port for loading produce onto the small coastal steamers that transported goods to Sydney.
At Batemans Bay we recross the Clyde river over one of the last
operational ‘Lift Bridges’ still in service. A short break for lunch, before an afternoon visit to Mogo Zoo. The Zoo is also recovering following a disastrous year. From here we head to motel and freshen-up for dinner (own expense) at the Soldiers Club before retiring to our accommodation
on for a peaceful night rest.
