South Coast laments

August 8th, 2011

Suppose the South Coast of New South Wales wasn’t exactly unpleasant. It just seemed a bit dull. Recollections of the various small towns quickly blurring. Few resilient memories. The hostel at Batemans Bay, the only resident, a few early nineties videos for company. It, like most in Australia, lacked the finesse of those in New Zealand, but it was functional. And warmer than the tent. In part inspired by the hostel, I decided to push hard for another further south at Merimbula. Quiet time of year, curious to see if I’d get the place to myself once more.

Batemans Bay

Batemans Bay. South of Sydney. And about five hundred miles short of Melbourne. Pretty nondescript place. The Bay that is. The best bits caught on camera. Short clip.

Hostel nights

Ken and Emma, his trusty steed, fall on their feet. Or wheels. An entire hostel to themselves. At Batemans Bay. Hidden joys of travelling in the off-season. About five hundred miles short of Melbourne.
