South Coast

Squeaky white sand beaches, turquoise waters lapping the shore and ancient rock formations are all found of the breathtaking South Coast of New South Wales. The South Coast also offers magnificent wilderness, top food and wine experiences, and gorgeous seaside and hinterland towns.

The South Coast is a narrow coastal belt, stretching from Shoalhaven in the north, to the border with Victoria in the south and west to the escarpment of the Southern Tablelands. The area is defined by small coastal towns, farms and a series of picturesque National Parks. Jervis Bay National Park includes the White Sands walk, that finishes at spectacular Hyams Beach. There’s also the beautiful Minamurra Rainforest to explore, full of walking trails, waterfalls and birdlife; and for coastal walks Killalea Reserve offers magnificent rocky coastline.

Meanwhile on the Sapphire Coast you can enjoy the Pambula-Haycock area located between Merimbula and Eden. Explore its sparkling river, fascinating Aboriginal middens and secluded beaches. Then head down south to Cape Green for spectacular coastal walks and excellent whale watching opportunities. No trip to the South Coast would be complete without visiting Kiama. Just south of Wollongong, you’ll find the charming town of Kiama with its world-famous Blowhole and Little Blowhole. Bateman’s Bay is at the heart of Australia’s Oyster Coast. The town unfolds along the banks of the Clyde River, where you can taste succulent Clyde River oysters from farm gates and fresh local seafood at a selection of restaurants.

The South Coast is Yuin country, but Aboriginal people on the South Coast come from a number of different groups including Brinja-Yuin, Budawang, Jerrinja, Murramarang, Walbunja, Wandandian, Wodi Wodi, Yuin and Yuin-Monaro. The South Coast also offers numerous Aboriginal cultural experiences, everything from fine art and ancient artefacts to walking trails along Songlines and guided tours of country.
