South Coast

New South Wales

The South Coast is home to rolling farmlands, small towns and villages along a rocky coastline, including numerous beaches.

The South Coast is the narrow coastal belt from Sydney in the north to the border with Victoria in the south in the south-eastern part of the State of New South Wales, and to the east is the coastline of the Pacific Ocean.

Coastal views spread along the 22 km Kiama Coast Walk and the famous Kiama blowhole which spouts seawater 20 metres into the air, or the 31 km Light to Light Walk on the Sapphire Coast. Clean unspoilt beaches stretch along 20 kilometres of Shellharbour coastline from Lake Illawarra to the Minnamurra River.

The South Coast is known for its natural beauty, pristine beaches and bays, national parks and the famous Bega Cheese. There are plenty of opportunities for adventure activities, ranging from surfing and swimming to sailing, hang gliding, paragliding, cycling and abseiling.

Wollongong is the only place in NSW where you can sky dive onto the beach. Batemans Bay attracts everyone from watercolour artists and rock fishermen, to kids building sandcastles, keen surfers and fishing enthusiasts.

Discover pristine locations on a coastline that stretches from the Royal National Park to Eden. Its many national parks contain beaches, lagoons and rainforest, and are known for camping, outdoor activities and wildlife.
