South Coast Events

The NSW South Coast is a little slice of paradise, stretching from just south of Sydney all the way to Eden. With its vast coastline, lush national parks and spectacular scenery, it’s more than one of the top holiday destinations in NSW; it’s also the ideal setting to host some of Australia’s top events.

The South Coasts’ packed events schedule offers something for everyone, whether you want to enjoy local food and wine and produce, see performances from some of the top local and international music acts, or check out the sporting and surfing events on offer.

Head to the South Coast’s largest city to check out a fantastic array of Wollongong events, NSW’s third largest city, which plays host to everything from major sporting matches to big music events and festivals. Further south in Kiama you can check out some great local markets and festivals. Don’t miss the events on offer at Jervis Bay, Batemans Bay and the Sapphire Coast.
