Fun family holidays on the South Coast

From beautiful scenery to fun adventure, treat your family to a wonderful escape on the splendid NSW South Coast. Relax on pristine beaches, swim in crystal-blue waters and enrol the kids in surf school, go whale watching, meet kangaroos in the wild and journey to the stars in a planetarium.

You’ll be amazed with the many more things to do and see, from steam trains at the Illawarra Light Rail Museum in Albion Park to waterslides at Jamberoo Action Park and zip-lines at Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures, near Jamberoo. Take the kids fishing and bushwalking in national parks, too.

Family fishing in Eurobodalla, NSW South Coast

There are plenty of tours and events for the whole family, as well. Just south of Sydney is Symbio Wildlife Park, near Stanwell Park, where you can experience native and exotic animals up close. In Wollongong, gaze at the stars, planets and galaxies at the Science Centre and Planetarium.

The famous blowhole in Kiama drenches spectators with seawater if they get too close. A short drive southwest is Berry and The Treat Factory for enticing handcrafted sweets. Take the family on a Segway tour and Bigfoot ride in the Coolangatta Estate, a winery near the Shoalhaven Heads.

Enjoy a picnic on some of the whitest sands in the world in Jervis Bay, home to dolphins and seals. Dolphin cruises depart all year and humpback tours depart during the annual whale migration. Farther south you can pat kangaroos in the wild on Pebbly Beach, in Murramarang National Park.

Mogo Zoo, near Batemans Bay, is home to endangered exotic species such as snow leopards. Tours depart from Narooma for the little penguins and fur seals on Montague Island. On the far South Coast, discover the Merimbula Aquarium in Merimbula and the Eden Killer Whale Museum in Eden.
