Hi canberra people. Ds has started getting sick on the Clyde when we're going down the coast. He's fine going down, but gets sick on the way up. I was thinking of going to Jervis Bay area for a change. I've never been there. Is the road as twisty as the Clyde, or is it a bit flatter?
Also considering narooma, and the brown mountain is shorter

I get car sick. If you are thinking of travelling the Nerriga Road, it's still pretty twisty. I had to stop 3 times going down it a few Christmases ago.

Brown is much longer, plus your adding a extra 2hrs to your journey.

I’m assuming you have tried carsick tablets and sea sickness bands.

Can you stop a Pooh corner to break the trip?

I find Nerriga Rd to Jervis Bay a bit less windy, but it is still somewhat windy, and longer.
Do you use Kwells or other medications? Can make a huge difference.

Yeah, might try the arm bands.

We don't make it to poohs corner. He always gets sick before the bad part, at the bottom where it's all 100km and windy. He'd always fine once you get further up. And it never happens going down. Bit weird.

And we're in queanbeyan, so it's only about a half hour longer down brown

Check out Myrtle Mountain, much shorter and gentler than the brown mountain.  It comes out at Candelo.

Haha disregard Myrtle Mountain. I couldn’t get my head around how the brown mountain added 1/2 hour!! There are 2 Brown mountains 🤦‍♀️
