A postcard from coastal Lake Tabourie, NSW, southeastern Australia

We spent five days at New Year at Lake Tabourie with Judy, Neil and other friends. It was a wonderful time with good food, wine and friendship in a relaxed and delightful atmosphere. A great beginning to 2018.

I realised that I have been going to Lake Tabourie for 52 years, a frightening thought.

When I was much younger the family began to go to Lake Tabourie in summer for a few years. That is, until we refused to go anywhere with our parents any more. We stayed in a converted garage on another property then.

Since, I have been privileged to use Judy’s house regularly. Judy’s father bought the house in the early 1950s. The house continues to have a 1950s character but with 2017 facilities. Judy and Neil have done an enormous amount of work to achieve this.

Lake Tabourie Location

Lake Tabourie is a small holiday village on the South Coast of NSW between Bateman’s Bay and Ulladulla. In comparison, other coastal towns in the area tend to have better facilities, but to be full of ‘red-brick’ suburbia.

I remember a family who bought a coast house in the 1970s that was a miniature version of their suburban home in Canberra. I’ve always hated this type of coastal development because I believe in a type of holiday house dwelling that is different to what one has at home. In this respect I probably have a ‘coast shack’ mentality.

Bateman’s Bay is where the King’s Highway from Canberra reaches the coast.
