From Sydney to the Great Outdoors: Carasel’s Favourite Getaways Pt 1

Posted by Bob Newman on Jan 07, 2014 - 0 Comments

While we love Sydney, there’s nothing that beats a road trip out of town to escape the routine of everyday life. At Carasel we understand that backyard wanderlust and have come up with a list of a few of our favourite places to escape to for a weekend. Make it a cheap getaway by hiring a towbar and hitching a caravan to the back of your ride.

Here’s the first part – Scarborough Hotel for a unique bevy, Jenolan Caves for a unique tour.

The Scarborough Hotel, Scarborough – just over an hour’s drive from Sydney

There isn’t anyone who’s spent a considerable amount of time in Sydney that could say that there’s a shortage of pubs in this fine city. However, if you’re willing to have a little bit of an adventure before a pint, a day trip to the Scarborough Hotel is a great way to sample some of the country’s finest watering holes outside of the city. Perfectly placed on the idyllic Illawarra coastline, the Scarborough’s beer garden shows you the best of what the South Coast is capable of. The building itself was founded in 1886 with the name Scarborough meaning ‘fort on the rock’ – apt for the scenic location. The Scarborough Hotel is definitely worth the day trip – come early to get the most out of everything Scarborough has to offer, grab a meal and a pint, sit back, relax.

The 11 caves that make up Jenolan have been dubbed Australia’s most spectacular caves, and it’s not hard to see why. Situated in the Blue Mountains, these caves are amongst the oldest in the world, featuring underground rivers and limestone formations. The award-winning tours will show you these and tell you much more – including a few Dreamtime creation tales.

While most go to the Blue Mountains to see that one lookout and walk those tracks, there’s much more to the mountains than what’s shown on the outside.
