|The Wharf at Eden|
We left under the cover of darkness on Friday morning, skies were clear and the moon well lit. We had reduced the amount of gear somewhat as we intended to just ride along the coast down to the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. By the time we had finally left the outskirts of Sydney the sun had fully risen.
We were planning to reach Bega or Eden today, a 450km to 550km ride. Our first stop was a lookout over Kiama. We spoke to a friendly chap who suggested a scenic drive down past Narooma on the way to Bega.
We stopped and had breakfast in Nowra before heading on to Bateman’s Bay. After we took the route suggested earlier, down through Narooma. It was a definitely more interesting ride. There was water on the road on the way to Tathra up to a foot deep but it was fine to cross. We got to Eden at about 4pm and found a camp site on the other side of the bay to Eden within walking distance to the Beach.
