South Coast beaches
Two of Australia’s best surfing beaches are less than two hours’ drive south of Sydney at Killalea State Park, near Shellharbour. The Farm and Mystics are recognised on the National Surfing Reserves. Begin your discovery of NSW South Coast beaches on the Grand Pacific Drive, a road trip south of Sydney that winds along the coast dotted with sandy beaches.
The 138 km route is part of the Sydney Melbourne Coastal Drive, which weaves its way farther south to delightful destinations such as Jervis Bay and the powdery white sands at Hyams Beach. In Narooma, snorkel with seals at Montague Island. Enjoy seaside villages surrounded by bushland and national parks. Beach fishing and boating are popular things to do.
