Sussex Inlet

For a wonderful coastal holiday with a range of water sports, visit the beautiful Sussex Inlet in the Shoalhaven region on the NSW South Coast. Much of this waterfront town is built around a system of tidal canals, offering easy access for fishing, boating and kayaking enthusiasts.

Between the magnificent St Georges Basin and the fine white sands and rolling waves of ocean beaches, Sussex Inlet is about 2h 40 min drive south from Sydney or east from Canberra. You’ll find a range of accommodation options — many with enchanting water views - to suit various budgets.

Stand-up Paddleboarding - Sussex Inlet

You can hire boats, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for fun on the water from Sussex Inlet Marine Centre and Alonga Boat Hire. There are also fishing rods and bicycles for rent. The great year-round fishing in the basin, inlet and ocean is celebrated at the Sussex Inlet Annual Family Fishing Carnival.

Other things to do in the area include learning to surf with the Jervis Bay and Sussex Inlet Surf School and bushwalking and cycling in Conjola National Park, which borders Sussex Inlet. The Walter Hood and Heath Circuit cycling trails begin in Cudmirrah, next to Swan Lake and near Sussex Inlet.

For golfers, play a round of nine holes at the Sussex Inlet Golf Club, which has barbecue facilities. To get to the unforgettable dolphin and whale tours in nearby Jervis Bay Marine Park, you’ll have to drive around St Georges Basin and enter Jervis Bay from the northern foreshore of the lake.
