Roadtrip Sydney to the High Country NSW – Discover the Charm

Get ready for the ultimate Aussie adventure! A roadtrip Sydney to the High Country NSW is super popular. Start off in Sydney, rolling down the coastline with all its chilled beach towns like Bateman’s Bay and Moruya. You’ll also discover Mogo and Cooma, – packed with history, charm, and cool attractions, then head inland to the Snowy Mountains and the High Country for some serious nature adventures, like hiking in Kosciuszko National Park, or the ski slopes – a perfect finale to an epic road trip.

Day 1: Sydney to Batemans Bay

  • Distance: Approx. 278  km
  • Drive Time: Approx. 3 hrs and 50 min
  • Head south along the Princes Highway and make a stop at the Royal National Park to stretch the legs or hire a paddle boat
  • Welcome to Batemans Bay – known for oysters, great seafood and chilled vibes. Don’t miss the Marina, and Surf Beach or get friendly with the Aussie wildlife at Birdland Animal Park. Hop in a kayak on the Clyde River, keep your eyes peeled for dolphins, and go hiking or hire a kayak in Murramarang National Park. And don’t forget to treat yourself to some fresh seafood – try The Oyster Shed or JJ’s. Feeling peckish? Swing by The Industrial for a great brekky roll.

Day 2: Batemans Bay to Moruya

  • Distance: Approx. 25.4 km
  • Drive Time: Approx. 20 mins
  • Make a stop at Mogo Wildlife Park to see native Australian animals up close.
  • Welcome to Moruya – known for its art scene and bustling markets. Grab at hot, cinnamon donut at the Sage Farmers Market or head over to the lovely volunteers at the CWA for a classic tea and scone combo (or sambo and chat). If you’re a foodie, there’s fine dining at The River Moruya with its locally sourced French meals and tasting menus. And if you’re a sporty spice, drop a line, kayak, bush walk or walk along the beach here, and golf lovers can tee off surrounded by lush scenery. For a unique experience, discover rich Aboriginal heritage of the area at the Moruya Museum, Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden or local galleries, such as The Bas. Also, the River of Art Festival too is a huge event but check the dates. But perhaps the best way to experience Moruya is simply wandering its streets, from the historic Moruya Lighthouse to cool cafes. Hungry? Next stop,  John and Willy’s.

And if you’re up for a scenic drive, don’t miss the chance to cruise down the Snowy Mountains Highway for some jaw-dropping views. Need a coffee?

Then explore Cooma shops, and colonial history at Cooma Cottage and stroll the charming streets on the Lambie Town Walk. Feeling like a unique experience?
