Grand Pacific Drive.

The last time Tanya and I saw each other was a year ago in Melbourne. Words can't describe how much I miss her and wish that she lived in Sydney - but I guess us flying up and down to see one another will have to suffice for now until one of us decides to move. Ha. Having discovered my favourite beach in Australia a few years ago I decided I needed to share this little jewel in order to convince the lil' lass to move to Sydney. The reason why I love driving down to Hyams Beach (in Jervis Bay) is because of it's secluded location, white sand and crystal clear waters. The beach lives up to all the hype.. and for a moment you sort of feel as if you were in the Maldives or Cancun (minus the tourists). Bucket list this place and GO! Details for accomodation + transport are listed below. 

Transport: The drive is supposed to take two and a half hours from NSW but be prepared to stop and take photos every 30 minutes or so. We ended up taking a grand seven hours (we literally pulled over non stop to take photographs...) But I suppose that's all part of the fun with a scenic road trip. We rented a car from Orana Car Rental for a week ($25 a day). I've been renting with Orana for just over two years now and they are SO much cheaper than Budget, Avis & Europcar. Additional driver is free of charge and international licenses are accepted!

Lodging: We stayed at the newly renovated Huskisson Holiday Cabins for one night ($120). Each cabin was equipped with a little kitchenette, private bathroom, balcony, queen bed and bunk bed all in great condition. WiFi was provided with a password but didn't seem to work (perhaps that was a good thing). The cabins in general had everything you needed and the location was an absolute winner! Would highly recommend staying here (perfect for 4 guests).

Sight Seeing: Stanwell Park provides the most picturesque views of the coast down South, Sea Cliff Bridge, Hyams Beach, Gerroa, Kiama (Blow Hole) and Huskisson for lunch.
