Travel Guide

Long Weekend Guide
with Ally...

We all have the unifying sentiment behind all road trips – we all have the desire to get away. Unwind. Relax and explore hidden gems which we haven’t yet been.

There is something about the fresh air, no agenda, and freedom, which make you feel like you’re almost getting the chance to start fresh; A new chapter.

In a way, this week kind of is a new chapter for me. October marks the end of the Australian ski season for my boyfriend Will and I, and the start of routine back in Sydney.

Each year, during the winter months, we spread our time between Sydney and Thredbo in Australia’s Snowy Mountains. And each each we have use the moving back to Sydney as a little hit of the refresh button.

On Monday, we packed (all of) our bags and hit the road and started the journey back to Sydney.

This time, we changed our route and instead we took the road through Adamninby, Tumut and saw the majestic beauty of the open sky and rolling farm land on the other side of the Great Dividing Range. It was so green and magic.

I was thinking to myself on this drive, that this part of Australia is an enigma to those living on the coast or metropolitan areas. I had heard of these areas, but in my 29 years, I had not been before. It was nice to be in an area that wasn’t overly populated, or heavily captured on Instagram.

Just a few highlights from our journey was staying at Nimbo Fork which is a cute little cottage, eating local produce, the picturesque views, the sound of the cows in the morning, the fresh river & all the cute local shops.

I wasn’t there long enough to explore the entire area, however, here are some things you can do! Ultimately, it’s the perfect place to head if you want to be somewhere quiet, and eat good food.

This area of New South Wales is known for its fresh produce, brewerys and a couple of boutique wineries.

The journey back to Syndey from here is about 4.5 hours, in which is predominately freeway, so I wasn’t able to see the cute towns in between!
