Parks in the South Coast area
There is plenty to keep you occupied within the South Coast region, and memorable moments are created with ease.
South Coast beaches suit all manner of water leisure, including surfing, swimming, snorkelling, and fishing. Among the many prized picks are Merimbula-Pambula, Broulee Beach at Batemans Bay, and Hyams Beach and Green Patch in the Jervis Bay area.
Montague Island Nature Reserve, just offshore from Narooma, is a top choice for diving. It attracts a large fur seal colony, and swimming with these incredible creatures is an electrifying experience.
Whale-watching opportunities are plentiful in the South Coast. Join a cruise to view these imposing animals at the likes of Eden, Huskisson, and Merimbula.
Another superb cruise option is to glide along the Clyde River, departing from Batemans Bay.
Nature glistens in the South Coast, and national parks and state forests reveal all manner of gems: rocky coastlines, uncrowded beaches, awe-inspiring coastal views, historical finds and much more. Among the leaders are Mimosa Rocks National Park, near Bega, which has quirky rock formations; Deua National Park, accessed from Moruya, which includes a massive chasm called the Big Hole; and Booderee National Park, between Nowra and Ulladulla, which is of great Aboriginal significance.
To diversify the holiday experience, visit myriad South Coast museums and galleries. Among standout attractions are the Killer Whale Museum in Eden, the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Nowra, the Lady Denman Maritime Museum and Gallery at Huskisson, and the Bega Cheese Heritage Centre at Bega.
