The Oyster Trail: Sapphire Coast
This Summer, rediscover an Australia from a bygone era, bypassing tourist hotspots like Byron Bay for hidden beaches and world-renowned oysters on The Sapphire Coast.
Yep, it’s December in Australia and it’s a great time to be alive. We’re ready to finish the year and drive along the coast with the cricket on the radio, while basking in the sweet smell of surf wax and sunscreen. This Summer, instead of going north from Sydney to the tourist hotspots like Palm Beach and Byron Bay, we think it’s time to rediscover a romantic Australian holiday of old along the Sapphire Coast.
Beginning just a few hours south of Sydney in Mollymook, the Sapphire Coast has everything that an iconic Australian road trip needs, without the over crowded beaches. We call it The Oyster Trail: a pilgrimage down the south coast of New South Wales to the border of Victoria, where hidden beaches, barefoot bowls, and freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters abide.
Here’s our guide on where to eat, where to stay, and what to pack for the Sapphire Coast.
