Family fun with Travel Tales

We designed a family adventure holiday that included the country, the coast and the coast and country with wonderful guided walks that educate across connecting with country and flora and fauna.  With wellness sessions, a star gazing show and a wonderful visit to a rural wildlife park it was the perfect itinerary for a young family! Introducing South Coast Experiences ambassadors Travel Tales with mum and wife Megs Law a renown travel writer and husband and dad Matt who captured the photography… enjoy!

Day One and Two

Checkin to the fun and freedom of Worrowing Jervis Bay! This property has acres to roam, kangaroos that graze across the property and wonderful dwellings to suit all travellers.  The Travel Tales family loved this property as the children got to explore and play with the grounds being suitable for primary age and older.

Day two was a guided walk with the Yuin Healing Trail.  Elder Jrumpinjinbah took them on a guide through Booderee National Park where whale season was travelling past.  A highlight that left the group in absolute surprise was when Jrumpinjinbah asked the group to close their eyes while he sung his whale song and upon opening whales had arrived and where seen by all… pretty amazing!

Jervis Bay offered them more than the stunning waterways with a night enjoying the stars with Jervis Bay Stargazing. An educational element that was fun and awe inspiring.


Day Three

Was a night at Mandala Beach House on Callala Beach. Luxury at every touchpoint it was a stay that allowed the family to regroup, have some downtime and enjoy the pool, chefs kitchen and living spaces.  A treat for the family that added a quick bike ride to Husky ferry service so they could access Huskisson for a day of exploring.

On checkout they were headed south and stopped at Martins Ridge Farm where they got to enjoy a farm tour of the animals, hear about a working farm and how they grow their produce in an ethical and loving manner.  Lunch overlooking the farm was delicious and fun then it was time to head to Pebbly Beach Escapes just north of Batemans Bay.

Day Four and Five

Staying at Pebbly Beach Escapes feels like the Swiss Family Robinson (for those that remember this tv show and book). A place to escape and feel at one with nature.  Boarded by the Murramarang coastal walk, the water is crystal clear and calm its a place for a family or friends to really connect with each other and the natural world.

We arranged a mobile yoga class with Soul Tribe Studios and the wonderful Clare as their teacher was a highlight.  The children really got a taste of some wellness and the importance of this with a studio on the verandah overlooking the scenic stay.

The group also got to explore inland and visit Old Blotchy, a tree that is so huge and ancient its hard to get your head around let alone impossible to hug! This was a guided tour by Paul from Nature Engagement Tours and enjoyed as a father and kids adventure while mum relaxed and had some me time!


On leaving Pebbly Beach it was time to head home but a half day visit to Mogo Wildlife Park was a delightful way to end.  The family got to enjoy feeding time with the hyenas and hear all about these incredible beings offering an up close and personal approach was something they wont forget and made them think twice about these animals that tend to get a bad rap by all!

We have this itinerary ready for you to enjoy here or get intouch directly with each property and experience of interest and make sure next time you are planning a trip with the kids to make it touch all the senses and imprint family memories that will last.
