We opted to take the leisurely way home from Canberra, spending a couple of nights at Merimbula. Our route to Merimbula took us through Cooma and Bega, a fast road except for the descent down Brown Mountain. This descent is for about 10 kms, and is extremely steep with lots of sharp bends, but is certainly an interesting experience.
We had a little trouble locating our accommodation in Merimbula because I hadn’t made a note of the address, but in fact it’s very central. We were very pleased with the apartment when we finally arrived; it’s probably not the cheapest accommodation in Merimbula but it’s spacious and modern – and has a great view.
