    Accomodation recommendations?

    We will be riding our tandem from the Snowy Mtns to home (South Coast NSW) in March/April.
    Does anyone have any accomodation recommendations for Jindabyne/ Canberra/ Gunning/Marulan cities/towns, please?
    We will stay in pubs or similar places. We decided not to camp this time and travel a bit lighter without the tent.
    Thanks in advance

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Also in Jindabyne there is supposed to be a good place - Bungarra Alpine lodge which is off Barry Way about 5km from town. There is plenty of other accommodation in the main town of Jindabyne itself. They can be a funny lot the shopkeepers @ Jindy. Sometimes it seems they really try to be unpleasant and almost rude to tourists and visitors. I guess during the snow season they must get all manner of jerks rock into town and this leaves them feeling a bit jaded.

    Hey all,
    well we finally did it. Caught the bus to Thredbo, then rode home to Wollongong. I can now answer my own question, firstly in Jindabyne we stayed at Lake Jindabyne Motel, it was nice and comfortable. Next night in Cooma, we stayed at The Bunkhouse, cheap but highly recommended! 111km later, in Queanbyean is the Aussie Settler Motel, nice and recommended. We lashed out in Bungendore and stayed at the Carrington Inn, bit dearer but luxury and affordable! Goulburn stay was at the Central Motor Inn, bit pricey but central to everything. Then home.
    We had a great time, rode 366km without any road rage, met many great people and saw heaps along the way.
    Any other info just email me.
    regards, Sillystorm.
