Your SMALL break can make a BIG contribution.

It’s been a rough year with Bushfires, floods, and COVID-19 and we have missed our visitors. So plan your escape, just two hours from Sydney and Canberra and rejuvenate yourself in the beautiful Shoalhaven. Don’t forget to bring your #EmptyEsky!

Scroll down to grab your free copy of our Guide to the Shoalhaven on where to eat, stay and play. When you arrive, be a conscious traveller as our community recovers from Bushfires and follow directions on COVID restrictions just as you do in your own home town. The world is a little different now, but our local businesses have lots in place to keep you safe, so check out these handy tips on how to be a conscious traveller.

Our beaches are just as gorgeous as always, and you can explore them on the 100 Beach Challenge, but please be aware that parts of our beautiful region remain impacted by the bushfires and will take time to recover. Some forest areas you may have liked to visit might be closed, so please check with NSW National Parks and State Forests before you visit.
