When it’s time for a weekend away, there’s only one thing to do – take a short drive and cross the ACT border. Check out some of our favourite spots to head to:


A two-and-a-half-hour drive from Canberra brings you to the seaside and the little town of Mollymook. Its beautiful beaches and unspoiled charm make for a great weekend soaking up the sun, sand and surf. The town has several great antique shops, and some fantastic restaurants serving up local produce with a gourmet spin.

Batemans BaySituated at the entrance of the Clyde River, this beachside haven is the jewel of the Eurobodalla region. Its expansive marina makes it a favourite for anglers where deep sea fishing tours depart daily, and gourmet fans enjoy sampling the Clyde River oysters right at the source. Just a two-hour drive from Canberra, it’s the closest beachside getaway, so if you’re craving ocean views and you want your weekend away to start as soon as possible this is should be your top pick.


A scenic eighty minute drive from Canberra brings you to beautiful Berrima. This gorgeous Georgian era village is just packed with picturesque charm. There’s a hub of vibrant cafes, restaurants and shops with Instagram-worthy views in every direction. It’s the perfect place to spend a few days in a nice B&B to relax and recharge, or if you’re after a little action you’re surrounded by beautiful national parks that provide a multitude of opportunities to hike, cycle and kayak.


From casual cafes and a hatted restaurant to an abundance of wineries, we can guarantee that you won’t be short of dining choices. For cricket fans, the Bradman Centre is a must see, full of interactive displays and enough sporting memorabilia to please even the most avid enthusiast. If sport’s not your thing, there’s galleries full of local artists’ work on display and a wide variety of quirky shops to explore. Bowral is a place with something for everyone.
