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

"Wonderful stay at Waymount Farm Studio. Kim and Kelvin were perfect hosts. Location is stunning, and perfect position for south coast. Kids would not get out of the pool. Sheep on site was fantastic for a city family to experience. Everything was immaculate and lots of little touches make this an excellent place to stay." Steve, January 2019.

A five star holiday house

"We were looking for something special for some time out and we sure found it. Waymount Farm Studio was super clean, lux and private. We had the pool to ourselves the entire time and our hosts were lovely and welcoming. Could not recommend a stay at Waymount more." - Peta-Marie, February 2019

Fantastic place to stay

"Lovely studio. Perfect for a couple plus our dog. The owners made an effort to meet us, provide a quick orientation and then gave us our privacy. We particularly enjoyed the pool and the garden areas, and overall the studio is clean and tidy. Location-wise you are very close to Berry, Hyams and Callala Beach. Would definitely recommend to other, especially those looking to take their pet with them." Kate, January 2019.
