South Coast Road Trip

Shall we try this again??

The new dates for our South Coast road trip are 24th - 26th July.

We had to postpone our first South Coast road trip due to weather and then of course Covid-19 struck so maybe it's third time lucky 

I've booked accommodation at Belmore All Suite Hotel in Wollongong for Friday night and Mariners Waterfront Hotel & Motel in Batemans Bay for Saturday night.

We're sticking to the same format - all the original details are below 

South Coast Road Trip!!!

I’m going on a road trip and I want you to join me 😊

Everyone loves a weekend away right? Let’s help our bushfire and drought affected areas by visiting the towns and spending some money.

My plan is to encourage as many people as possible to drive to a destination, shop, eat, drink, knit, crochet, stay a night and then do it all again.

The only involvement I have is planning the route and deciding on some of the meeting points.

You will have to organise your own accommodation in the chosen town or a nearby town and decide whether you want to travel on your own or organise a group to travel with.

We will have a group knit/crochet meetup on Saturday night at a venue that is able to offer us food, drink and comfy chairs. I will also be inviting local crafters to join us.

I’m mindful of the fact that there is a mix of people who work on Friday and people that don’t work on Friday so Friday night is your choice. I’ll try to keep the Friday night accommodation under 2 hours from Sydney and accessible by train.

I’d love to be able to do this once a month for all of 2020 😊
