After your sugar overload, amble along Queen and Albert streets and Old Creamery Lane past heritage buildings and browse locally made gourmet products, sweet treats, elegant wines. For fresh produce, flowers, bargain-priced antiques and handmade goods, you can't go past one of the three Berry Markets throughout the month. Be sure to check the dates before you travel.

Miss the holiday traffic and take the Husky Ferry to Jervis Bay. Relax on white sandy beaches, or explore two national parks bordering the Jervis Bay Marine Park, a haven for bottlenose dolphins, fur seals, little penguins, sea dragons and migrating whales. Staying in self-contained accommodation, no longer will you have to drive to Nowra for a big shop. A sprawling new shopping mall, the Vincentia Marketplace, a $50 million development, is well designed and spacious, has attractive décor and a good selection of shops.
Experience cosy nostalgia in this rambling 1970s build that has been updated with Balinese landscaping outside, and high-spec renovations in the kitchen, living room and bathroom. Worrowing Estate at Jervis Bay is the perfect place to rest, and only minutes from the white sand beaches.
Day 3: Jervis Bay to Sussex Inlet
