Explore the South Coast differently, by heading away from the well-trodden paths and going somewhere new. Challenge yourself on an adventure through our national parks or enjoy our wines and produce by blending beautiful havens like Seven Mile Beach and Callala Bay with cellar door visits and long lunches. Our Live Like a Local itinerary is a favourite, combining salt, sand and a little indulgence at your home away from home. If you are already here you can start playing now, or download a printable copy to show your crew.


Live Like a Local 

Get the feel for a place and take in a slice of local life by settling into our southern enclave of Ulladulla. Nearby Narrawallee Beach is a local favourite for a morning surf and there's no better way to wake up than with a refreshing dip in the sea! Narrawallee Inlet is also a beautiful secluded spot for some sunrise yoga on the sand. After a rejuvenating start to the day, take the holiday vibes up a notch and relax with a mobile massage from Beauty Indulgence Milton in the comfort of your own accommodation. As the sun starts to set, its time to hit the town and party with some delicious cocktails and great live music at Harvest Bar


Unforgettable Family Memories

Start those important holiday traditions with the young ones in the Shoalhaven. The self-contained cabins at Racecourse Beach Tourist Park are often surrounded by cute, resident kangaroos that the kids will adore. There's also plenty of opportunities for swimming and fishing at Racecourse BeachMilk Haus in Milton will serve up a hearty breakfast before a day of exploring or you can DIY a picnic at Bawley Beach with goodies from the Wholefoods Store Milton and Flour Water Salt. Nearby Murramarang National Park is also home to the incredible Pretty Beach to Pebbly Beach Walking Track, which is an excellent way to get the heart pumping for adventurous families.




Luxe Wine & Dine Escapes

Indulge in a luxe getaway around Mollymook, beginning with a decadent meal at the one-hatted St Isidore restaurant, where paddock to plate food lets fresh local ingredients shine. Our seafood is some of the best you'll find in NSW so we also recommend grabbing some delicious oysters and heading down to Narrawallee Beach for a gourmet bite. You can stay at the luxurious Bannisters by the Sea penthouse and sip on some cocktails, poolside of course, at the glamorous sister hotel Bannisters Pavilion. The next day, enjoy a cellar door tour at Cupitts Winery, Brewery & Kitchen, followed by a decadent cheese platter whilst overlooking the stunning vineyard.


Vibrant Heritage Towns

Road trip through the gorgeous, windy roads of Kangaroo Valley and drive over the iconic Hampden Bridge. It's a particularly beautiful drive in the cooler months as the colourful autumn leaves begin to fall. On your way to shop up a storm in Berry, make sure to stop at Cambewarra Mountain Lookout for a freshly brewed coffee and soak up the amazing views that stretch all the way to the ocean. After you've picked up souvenirs from the Queen St boutiques, grab a sweet treat at the Berry Tea Shop or have dinner at the Heads Hotel, just a stone's throw from picture perfect Seven Mile Beach.




Unspoilt Adventure

Get the adrenaline pumping on this adventure-filled itinerary. Water babies will love heading out with Jervis Bay Stand Up Paddle at Culburra Beach - make sure to grab a delicious barista brew from the Ritual Habitual coffee van while you're here! After a day on the water, retreat to your haven under the stars at Paperbark Camp and dine on some amazing local produce at the on-site Gunyah Restaurant. Pop on your hiking shoes the next morning and explore the rockpools around Currarong Beach and get ready for the epic view from the edge of the earth after you emerge from Gosang's Tunnel.
