Caravanning in the Shoalhaven

Article by · 26 May 2017 ·

Discover the unspoilt playground Sydneysider’s have been keeping to themselves. Shoalhaven is home to more than 100 glistening beaches, 49 charming villages and towns, and some of the finest seafood restaurants the state has to offer.

Located just over 2 hours south of Sydney, the South Coast region has long been the destination of choice for Sydneysiders, and its time the rest of the country caught on.

Active travellers can spend their days kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding in crystal clear waters, trekking through dense national parks, or surfing at remote beaches with nothing but the sound of the waves to distract you.

If you’re after something more relaxed, you’ll find countless vineyards and cellar doors, local produce trails, and historic villages with trendy cafes and designer stores. There’s much to see and do, even during the cooler winter months.
