We leave Jervis Bay and continue south 160 miles hugging the coastline to our next stop at Brogo, The roads are easy, the scenery spectacular, forests, valleys, cliff tops, lakes and every town or village we pass through is the same - lovely! Ulladulla, Milton, Mogo a historic gold rush village, Batemans Bay, we stop at Narooma for refreshments, the small bay is teeming with wildlife and is a protected site.
We could stop at any one town, but we can't see them all just don't have the time.
We carry on south, turn right off the highway, turn inland and take a look at Tilba Tilba a National Trust village it seems where time stands still, preserved 19th century weatherboard houses now selling antiques, galleries showing art, leather and jewellery, books etc.
It's now late afternoon and we carry on to Brogo, again we turn right off the highway slightly inland toward the hills we drive a few miles before turning into a small pot holed, rutted, rock strewn single dirt track road, it's really, really steep I mean steep, with tight turns for about 1 mile, before we find our accommodation for the night, Wonga Lodge. Wow, what a place, don't know about road to hell this is road to heaven! We are perched on top of a hill in the middle of forest, animals and birds it's beautiful. We're greeted by the owners Mary and Woody, Woody tells us that some guests and some friends won't drive up the hill? Really, It's not that bad. We have the downstairs space to ourselves. It's great well furnished and tastefully decorated, it's like an artists retreat in the hills. We get cleaned up and join our hosts, where Mary has cooked us a lovely three course meal, the pair keep us entertained all evening with their stories but we've drunk enough beer and wine that we can drink no more and turn in for the night (or morning)
