Day Three: Narooma to Genoa

Another perfect day- hard to believe it's almost officially winter! We head out of Narooma via the coast, past Wallaga lake (pic above)to Bermagui, where someone obviously hasn't quite got the intent of the signs the signs...

Still, the weather's still perfect and the water looks amazing- there's gotta be some great diving around here.

We then head south to Tathra via Mimosa Rocks NP, and I think how I've definitely got to come back to this part of the country for a longer stay some time. We pull up for a break and another photo stop at the old wharf at Tathra- apparently the last sea wharf on the NSW coast.

We head on to Bega (more cheese!) and Merimbula, where we stop for lunch, and some of the best oysters I've ever had for $12/dozen (why the hell do I live in Sydney again?).

In Eden we visit the Killer whale museum, with it's displays on the shore whaling industry that operated there around the turn 
of the 20th century, where pods of Orcas worked in cooperation with the whalers to herd whales into the bay to be killed. I can't help but think it would make way better subject matter for an Australian period movie than some bollocks about a cattle drive during WW2...

Heading towards the Victorian border, we start to look for a campsite and realise we're running low on water... not too smart, remind me not to repeat that when we hit the Nullabor!! So we push on across the border to Genoa, where we find what appears to be a disused caravan park with a few mobile homes already parked up for the night... and no sign of a price tag or "no camping" signs. We can't believe our luck, and pull up for the night.
