Need a little breather from the daily grind or the corporate jungle? The coast is calling. Take a break from the craziness of city life and treat yourself to a weekend of ultimate indulgence. With food, wine and pamper opportunities galore, the Shoalhaven is bursting with plenty of ways to spoil yourself. Wine, dine and let the water soothe your soul as you embark upon Visit Shoalhaven's 100 Beach Challenge in luxurious style.
Beachside Dining with Local Flavours
Indulge your palate with a fantastic culinary experience at Bangalay Dining at Shoalhaven Heads. Chef Brent Strong proudly serves a wonderful breakfast, lunch and dinner menu infused with native Australian ingredients and local produce in Australian/Euro style. The beach is just across the dunes so finish off your dining experience with a beach stroll and a chance to spot whales between May and November.
Glam Up for a Night of Cocktails
Put on your fancy shoes and get dressed up for a night of delicious cocktails. Bannisters Pavilion's lavish Rooftop Bar & Grill is the perfect place to keep the drinks flowing into the night. The luxurious bar is filled with intimate lounge spaces, a stunning suspended pool and lined with sun beds for ultimate relaxation. Sip on refreshing craft beers and cocktails like the Bannisters Breeze or the Silverback Negroni and feel at ease in this ritzy coastal paradise.
Retreat to Ultimate Luxury
Splurge on a couple of nights in one of the exquisite Collette Dinnigan Penthouse Suites at Bannisters by the Sea, you deserve it! This famous hotel is perched on a breathtaking clifftop, just a stone's throw away from Mollymook Beach. Fall asleep with the sound of the waves crashing onto the sand. The coastal hotel offers two penthouse options, both luxuriously styled to capture the essence of the sea. If you feel like a bit of a pamper session, book yourself into Bannisters Day Spa and rejuvenate your body and mind in ultimate tranquility.
Spend the Day at a Beautiful Vineyard
Cupitt's Winery, Brewery and Kitchen is a wonderful South Coast, food, wine, beer and cheese extravaganza in one place! This boutique, family-run vineyard is in the most picturesque of locations, set on a lovely, green slope with breathtaking views of Burrill Lake and Pigeon House Mountain. The property oozes French provincial charm and offers visitors a wonderful country experience, even though the beach is less than ten minutes away! Book a Cupitt's Winery cellar door tour and tasting package to catch a glimpse of all the action that happens behind the scenes.
Connect to the Coast
We recommend continuing the lavish foodie holiday by grabbing some local oysters and taking them down to the waterfront and watching a majestic sunset down at Mollymook, Narrawallee or Racecourse Beach. North Mollymook is great for swimming, or take a leisurely Stand Up Paddle lesson with Coastal Paddle Surf and explore Narrawallee Inlet. What better way to end a romantic weekend of luxury!
