The Coast of New South Wales stretches up from the border with Victoria to Sydney, and it is home to some of the most amazing areas in Australia. Guerilla Bay is a true example of this; a hidden bay formed in rocks which date back 510 million years. This flawless area is a small patch of heaven for you to make your holiday home.
When you are not staring around in awe at the perfect white semi-circle of beach and bright blue water, or taking photographs of the grand stones either side – there is plenty to do in the water. In Guerilla Bay, you could partake in snorkelling, swimming or even kayaking. The seas are often calm, and so it can be a great and non-intimidating way to explore these waters. You can watch the fishing boats go out and come back, and enjoy the area’s fantastic quality seafood. The laid back atmosphere means that you can have a relaxed holiday but also get involved in any activities that you wish.
The beach itself can provide a lot of enjoyment – of course sun worshippers will enjoy this private and beautiful place to sit back and nap in the sunshine, or enjoy a picnic looking out into the ocean. The rocks are great for the whole family, with many rock pools to have an explore and a paddle in for younger children, and you can also clamber up the bigger rocks for a view across the bay.
Guerilla Bay is the starting point for the 1.5 kilometre Banksia Walk to Burrewarra Point. This is an easy and enjoyable walk for everyone to enjoy; it follows through the Banksia Forest, with views all the way up and down the coast, as well as to the hinterland on the West. You may even be able to see your holiday home! From early September to late November, whales embark upon their southerly migration, and it is along this walk that it is possible to get the best vantage point at this time. This is a phenomenal sight to see, and the forest is also rife with colourful wildlife, including rare birds and plants, so do not forget to take your camera.
The village of Mogo is close by and is a great place for you to stop off if you are with the children, as it has the major attraction of the The Mogo Zoo. Batemans Bay is also nearby, which is more built up and has a busy shopping area. Being in holiday accommodation in Guerilla Bay means that you can enjoy the tranquility of the beach set against bushland, but also be within reach of anything that you may wish to see and do, in the surrounding towns.
Guerilla Bay is great to visit all year around, as the average temperatures stay fairly warm even in the winter months – especially compared to the United Kingdom! The hottest time to visit is around December to March, and Guerilla Bay provides ideal ways to cool down – under the leafy greenery just next to the bay, or taking a dip into the sea. The activities are available all year round, and as it is such a calm and quiet sandy beach you will not struggle with the pains of a busy season. It is a personal, beautiful gem from January to December.
How to get there from the U.K
For holidaymakers heading to their accommodation in Guerilla Bay from the United Kingdom, there are a number of options. The nearest International Airport is Canberra Airport – this car journey takes about two hours, and goes through some beautiful forests before you get to the coast - it is so picturesque that if you are planning on renting a car then it is definitely a good way to get to your holiday home. Alternatively, you could get a connection to the closer and smaller airport of Moruya, which is only seven miles away, and it is from here that you could get a quick and easy transfer to Guerilla Bay. It all depends on what your preferred method of travel is – either way you are going to get a great view of the forests, either from within or above, before you get to your holiday accommodation in Guerilla Bay.
