There are a great many beaches in the Shoalhaven, including Shoalhaven Heads, Mollymook, and the stunning sands of Jervis Bay.


Some of the best fishing spots on the South Coast are found in Jervis Bay, including Hyams Beach, Plantation Point, Callala Bay, and Currarong. For something closer, try starting at Nowra Bridge, upstream you can catch bream, flathead, whiting and mulloway.


During the warmer seasons, the Shoalhaven River is the perfect place to go for waterskiing and wakeboarding. With campsites and boat ramps up and down the river, this is a popular destination during the summer.


There are golf courses scattered all across the South Coast, this includes the Shoalhaven Heads Golf Club, and the Nowra Golf and Recreation Club.


The South Coast is well known for its wide range of high quality wineries. Many have cellar doors and wine tastings, and most are part of wine tours across the Shoalhaven region.

The Nowra Aquatic Park is a recently refurbished addition to the already extensive list of activities in the Shoalhaven area.


Gorgeous retreat

"What a perfect holiday retreat. So relaxing with sun drenched living areas overlooking the stunning countryside and a gorgeous pool spa outdoor area. So much space. King beds were a real treat. The kids loved the sauna and the close proximity of the kangaroos, sheep and cows. We would all highly recommend Waymount Farms." - Penny

A five star holiday house

"This is an outstanding holiday house that can accommodated multiple families. It has big grounds, a big pool, a big spa, a sauna, a big kitchen, a big BBQ... you get the idea. Everything worked too. It also had lovely views from the backyard of its paddocks and the mountains. We would definitely like to stay again." - Simon

Fantastic place to stay

"We spent three nights at Waymount Farm over the Australia Day long weekend and enjoyed the peaceful surrounds and excellent facilities. Plenty of space, a great kitchen area to entertain from, a wonderful outdoor area and BBQ, and a pool that we couple not keep the kids out of. All of that plus the farm setting with cows, sheep and the odd kangaroo, all close by... what more could you ask for?!" - Joel
