Wander by the River

at Batemans Bay NSW Australia

Where is Batmans Bay?

After Ulladulla, you head south of Sydney along the south coast of New South Wales. The drive takes you on the Princes Highway to Batemans Bay.

 

Then, you cross over Clyde River via the Clyde River Bridge. Clyde River flows into Batemans Bay.

 

You can try the oysters, which are harvested in the river.

 

Bushfires

At the time, I read and saw how the bushfires affected Batemans Bay and the surrounding areas last summer. Closed roads, no power, no petrol, closed supermarkets, and the like, left residents and holiday makers stranded.

 

And, they were forced to survive in the smoke-filled air from the bushfires.

 

Mogo Village & Wildlife Park

Not far away, you can visit Mogo. It's a village that lost some buildings due to the bushfires.

But, for me, it was the scenes on TV showing Mogo Wildlife Park. The bushfires from Clyde Mountain threatened the wildlife park.

The owner and workers at the zoo stayed to protect the animals. On the broadcasts, you saw how they drove around the park with portable water tanks spraying water.
