Winter is here and Aussie families on the east coast are gearing up for another season on the slopes. It’s a holiday jam-packed full of adrenaline, stacks, tricks and loads of fun. It’s far from your relaxing beachside holiday. But why not combine the two? After your snow holiday in NSW, stop off on the South Coast for a little R&R. Your tired body will thank you.
After some serious downhill action on the ski fields, stop in at Racecourse Beach on your way home. Racecourse Beach is on the outskirts of Bawley Point, about a four-hour drive from Jindabyne and about four-hour drive south of Sydney. Racecourse Beach offers the perfect setting for a little relaxation with beautiful scenic beaches and bushland, cosy and romantic wineries and restaurants, and perfect surfing conditions.
Things to do in Racecourse Beach
Surrounded by beautiful national parks, there are plenty of walking tracks perfect for some recovery exercise. Taking a walk when your muscles are sore from all that skiing or snowboarding will help stretch out the muscles and increase blood flow helping you recover quicker.
You could also spend your time enjoying the beautiful beaches doing as little or as much as you like. The ocean temperature on the south coast stays at a warm 18 degrees year-round. For the keen surfer, the swell tends to be better during winter and has fewer crowds and more friendly dolphins. For those that have had enough action, enjoy a picnic on the sand whilst looking out to sea. You may even catch a glimpse of a humpback whale on its migration journey.
There are also plenty of places to dine and nourish your body. Check out our guide to eating like a local on the South Coast.
