Towing Sapphire Coast to Bowral

Hi. I have a nervous partner who gets very anxious on steep sideslopes and winding roads. Which route would be better to take from Sapphire Coast back to Hume Hwy and then south plz? Chčers Peter

From where exactly on the sapphire coast? The easiest roads are the Mt Darragh Road from Pambula through Wyndham to Bombala, and the Nerriga Road from near Nowra.

The most commonly used routes up the escarpment are the Brown Mtn road from Bega to Cooma and the Clyde Mtn road from Batemans Bay to Braidwood. These do have steep and winding sections, but they're both doable. Vans go up and down every day. Most people seem to prefer the Clyde, but I think that overall it's a poor quality and busy road, and prefer Brown Mtn, because apart from the 10km climb it's a better and less traffic-ed road.

The road from Cann River to Bombala is also reasonable. It is a little bit winding, but no sharp corners that I can recall and a moderate gradient.

If your partner is nervous and you want to stay together, DON'T go Browns Mountain either direction.

Best way is go about 8km sth Nowra just nth bewong Roadhouse. take the turpentine road shortcut and join the nerriga rd to Goulburn, great road no big hills.
Only thing to watch out for is causeway dip in road at nerriga if towing slow to 5km for it
