Lots of cool adventures at the sapphire coast

Merimbula Wharf. Yesterday arvo. Just jump! #merimbula #sapphirecoastnsw #newsouthwales


This is what we can do.....appreciate everything and every day we have, and make our footprint as small as we can ๐Ÿ’•

THERES A REASON I HAVENโ€™T SAID MUCH ABOUT THE FIRES...itโ€™s not because I donโ€™t care, itโ€™s not because it hasnโ€™t affected me directly, itโ€™s not because I donโ€™t know what to do to help...I do โ€ข Iโ€™m doing it everyday โ˜บ๏ธ by making the choice to appreciate this world and itโ€™s finite resources by being more sustainable at home in our everyday lives ๐ŸŒŽ Not only that, but appreciating moments like this (a beautiful lookout near Eden) in all their glory๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘†๐ŸฝBy doing my bit to protect and nurture my community surrounds, I ensure my footprint on this planet is as small and as gracious as possible ๐Ÿฆถ When was the last you truly appreciated the planet and all it has to offer???


Book a trip to the amazing sapphire coast. We will be open all year!

No sugar coating here, things are crazy tough right now on the beautiful #sapphirecoastnsw ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜” Weโ€™ve been so fortunate to have an increase in sales of our gin online through #spendwiththem, but thereโ€™s so many out there that canโ€™t sell online that need your help. This months issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller has a wonderful eight page spread on our beautiful area (including our Flora!!๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿคฉ) and they have even started the itinerary for you. So if youโ€™re one of those with heartfelt memories of holidays here when you were a child, or maybe you grew up here and havenโ€™t been back in a while, nowโ€™s the time! Plan it.....maybe for next month, Easter, Spring, even next Summer, but book it now so the locals can feel the love NOW and have some faith that there is a future for our beautiful area. Oh, and donโ€™t forget the #emptyesky! Read more, and see the full article on our blog - https://www.northofeden.com.au/post/read-gourmettraveller-and-then-gowithemptyeskys
Itโ€™s time to show, and share, the love ๐Ÿ’š

We are thankfully untouched by the bushfires and have cottages available for bookings. The weather is looking lovely and our pool is sparkling. Message for a great deal on a summer Farmstay holiday. ๐Ÿ“ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฎ

ITโ€™S OFFICIAL...visitors are welcome back to the Sapphire Coast NSW and Tathra is open and ready for business again. Huge thank you to our emergency and fire crews for their amazing efforts ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Now is the perfect time to reboot summer and STAY, SHOP, EAT & ENJOY TATHRA. See our gallery for a few fun suggestions around town. See ya soon ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ



We are not currently able to host guests, but our Farmstay cottages were spared the line of fire.
Come visit later in the year. ๐Ÿ˜Š

You're all aware of what's happening around Australia right now, hell....the whole world is watching, and if you're anywhere on the South Coast of NSW right now, like us, you are living through it.

I'm betting you feel compelled to help, and help will be needed for a long time. Right now the best way you can help is to plan a holiday.

Not now, not in a few months...plan it for winter, plan it for next year or the year after that, because in 6 months time when this is all over and the world has stopped watching, these regional towns all down the South Coast will still need your help and most of all they will need you to come back.

Book ahead, pay in advance, plan to visit as many regional destinations as you can along the way and you will be welcomed with open arms and much gratitude. When someone asks you where your planning your next holiday...tell them you're #southcoastbound


Rise and shine piggies!!!

There is never a dull moment in Tathra...a pink baby dolphin has been spotted this morning playing with its mother at the mouth of the river just off Mogareeka. Locals quickly named the baby dolphin April as she appeared on the first of the month. So cute ๐Ÿค—
