If you're feeling like a breath of fresh air or a short break to recharge your batteries, the beautiful South Coast of NSW beckons with some spectacular scenery and adventure experiences. Crystal-clear bays and lakes, uncrowded beaches and beautiful rivers are perfect year-round for fishing, diving, canoeing, and boating while the pristine bushland is enjoyed by bush walkers, bird-lovers and cycling enthusiasts.

Must Do

South Coast

Take in stunning scenery and coastal views along the 22 km Kiama Coast Walk, or the 31 km Light to Light Walk on the Sapphire Coast. See sleek fur seals up close, in the wild, at Montague Island off the coast from Narooma. Camp on the beaches of the Shoalhaven and go surfing in Shellharbour. Top it all off with some great food and wine at cafes and restaurants located by a river, overlooking the beach or amidst the vines.

The region includes Wollongong, Kiama, the Shoalhaven towns of Jervis Bay, Nowra, Mollymook and Ulladulla, while Eurobodalla towns include Batemans Bay, Moruya and Mogo. The southernmost towns of Bega, Merimbula, Pambula and Tathra are on the Sapphire Coast.
