The broad Shoalhaven River offers a number of recreational possibilities such as fishing, boating and river cruises. Nowra is also a base for local adventure tour operators. Options include four-wheel drive tours, scuba diving, canoe trips and cycling tours. Nowra has a number of historic buildings and houses dating from the Victorian era.
Be sure to check out the Fleet Air Arm Museum. The museum celebrates our proud links with the aviation industry with a wonderful display of military and civil aircraft. Also, explore 'Meroogal', an historic, timber, gothic-style house with one of the most authentic 19th century interiors in NSW.
