The countryside awakens from its wintery slumber and the warmer days sparkle with promise and adventure… here’s 10 reasons why Spring is the perfect time to stay at Bangalay.
10. The days are getting warmer
The chill of the wintery morning is subsiding and the morning sun shines through, warming you up and spurring you on to get out and discover the world, rather than spending another day holed up indoors.
9. The holiday crowds haven’t arrived
The Summer crowds are yet to arrive, so you are in with a likely chance of having the beach almost to yourself at Bangalay in Spring and free reign over most activities and attractions – the world is your oyster!
8. Spring calls for bushwalking and cycling adventure trails
Milder days call for challenging yourself on outdoor trails, pushing yourself to explore further and go deeper to discover the rugged beauty of remote areas of the South Coast. Spring is a perfect time to dust off your hiking boots or take the bike for a spin – you never know where you’ll end up and what amazing sights you will uncover by taking the time to traverse the local trails.
7. Spring means baby animals
A drive around the countryside in Spring will reward you with the sweet sight of baby animals born on the local farmlands. A leisurely drive through Berry, Gerringong, Kiama, Bolong, Terara and Pyree will showcase baby goats, sheep, horses, cattle, alpacas and llamas to name a few. There’s nothing sweeter than seeing new life and Spring is the perfect time to spot adorable fuzzy animals whilst taking in the local highlights on your holiday.
6. Lush rolling green hills and flowers blooming
Bright blooms and lush green foliage is the hallmark of Spring, and Spring on the South Coast does not disappoint. Enjoy long winding drives through the country taking in the rolling meadows and colourful flowers dotting the landscape. The South Coast is pretty as a picture in Spring time.
5. Perfect long lunch and picnic weather
Clear, fresh Spring days make the perfect opportunity to lounge on the picnic blanket by the water with friends or enjoy a long lunch with family soaking up the sunshine. The temperature isn’t too hot so your food won’t spoil and your drinks will stay nice and refreshing allowing you to really take your time as you unwind and relax- what’s the hurry?
4. Spring sunshine
With much less rainfall than autumn and winter, Bangalay in Spring is a great time of year to visit and explore the region at your leisure, without dodging raindrops and puddles.
