We started our road trip from Melbourne to Sydney on the morning when the worst of the bushfires were being reported on the news. Great! So we had to make a few last minute changes along the way. First stop was Merimbula, about 5-6 hours drive from Melbourne.
My uncle, aunt and cousin were staying there already so caught up with them for a drink in the evening and then for a lovely breakfast on the boulevard in the morning.
We explored the beaches, waiting till it we found a safe route and then continued on our way, headed towards the stunning Sapphire Coast.
