From Yarram head into the coastal hills to the Tarra Bulga National Park. This hidden pocket of temperate rainforest provides amazing walks and spectacular vistas at the suspension bridge. Even if you don’t go for a walk, the drive is absolutely breathtaking. Follow the main highway into Sale and you have peaceful wetlands and the historic Swing Bridge with great walk and riding trails. Plus, there’s a very significant waterbird area which you can find out about here.
Stop in Sale, where a vibrant foodie scene awaits. Grab a quick lunch, or take it slow and savour some amazing dishes in house.
Heading North out of Sale, work your way up into the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. You’ll pass through Stratford and Briagolong, so if you’re hungry or thirsty, there’s plenty of good options there. Your journey will take you to the Blue Pool, one of the amazing hidden gems of the region. Take a walk on the nearby trails or relax by the pools – the perfect place for a swim on a warm summer’s day and a local favourite.
