The south coast


The south coast, with its green dairylands and small fishing villages, is delightful in a quiet sort of way – an area for casting a rod, surfing or relaxing on the many stunning beaches – with no huge resorts or commercial developments. It is all rather low-key and family-oriented, with a few wildlife and amusement parks to keep the children happy, and plenty of opportunities for traditional outdoor pursuits. Exposed parts on this stretch of the coast are perfect for surfing, while the numerous coastal lakes, bays and inlets are suited for swimming, windsurfing, sailing or canoeing. Away from the ocean there’s some superb rugged scenery, with some great bushwalking and horseriding in the forest-clad, mountainous hinterland. The stretch between Jervis Bay and Batemans Bay in particular can get busy during the summer months, especially from Christmas to the end of January.
