Getting to Batemans Bay from Canberra takes only a couple of hours heading east on the Kings Highway. A scenic drive, the road passes through farmlands, forests and mountain ranges before meeting the coast. Passing through Queanbeyan, the route continues on through Bungendore, Braidwood, Clyde Mountain and Nelligen before turning onto the Princes Highway and travelling south to the heart of Batemans Bay.

Driving to Batemans Bay from Melbourne takes approximately 10 hours along the Princes Highway. Head north to the New South Wales state border and continue on through the towns of Bega, Eden, Moruya, Narooma and Mogo until you reach Batemans Bay. There is a quicker route that travels inland along the Hume Highway to Canberra and then along Kings Highway to Batemans Bay, however this is a much less scenic route.

Sydney's Kingsford Smith Airport also offers flights to Moruya, just 20 minutes from Batemans Bay. The direct flight takes less than an hour and offers stunning views of the coastline. There are also plenty of shuttle services that can deliver you to your accommodation from the airport. Alternatively, there are a couple of coach companies that provide regular services from Sydney to Batemans Bay as well as rail services from Sydney to Bomaderry in Nowra which connect with bus services into Batemans Bay.

Similarly, there are coach services from Canberra to Batemans Bay departing regularly from the Jolimont Centre. Melbourne also offers a number of train and coach services that offer direct transportation to Batemans Bay or the option to use a combination of the two and take in the scenery.
