Stay on the Unspoilt South Coast

Whether you want to spend your Winter break at a beachside campsite, sprawling holiday house, luxury boutique hotel or vineyard cottage, you’ll find the perfect place to stay on the unspoilt South Coast. Take a mid-week break, make a long weekend of it or settle in for a relaxing stay in Shellharbour, Kiama and Shoalhaven.

For absolute luxury, check in to Bannisters Pavilion on Mollymook Beach; don’t miss a seafood dinner at the in house Rick Stein restaurant. At the new eco-friendly Bangalay Villas on Seven Mile Beach, 16 sleek and stylish retreats look out over the Shoalhaven Heads Golf Course.

Live like a local in a spacious holiday house. The striking Reflections at Minnamurra sits on the edge of the Minnamurra River with a heated spa for crisp Winter evenings. Ocean Farm in Gerringong is perched in the hills above Werri Beach with jaw-dropping views.

If you want facilities like a restaurant, bar, pool, gym and spa, choose The Sebel Kiama Harbourside or Mercure Gerringong Resort. Or if you prefer to do it yourself, pitch your tent close to the famous The Farm surf break at Killalea Reserve Holiday Park or among the kangaroos at Pebbly Beach campground.

Wake with the roosters and feed the lambs at a South Coast farm stay, like The Woods Farm, The Pines or Valhalla. Switch off from the world at Cedarvale Health Retreat, sleep among the vines in a cottage at Coolangatta Estate or embrace history at the grand 19th century manor house Ravensthorpe.
