Shoalhaven on the South Coast of NSW is bouncing back after the Currowan fire, and as the bush rejuvenates, visitors are being welcomed back to do the same. Take a small break to make a big contribution to affected towns and communities.
The NSW Rural Fire Service has declared that visitors can return to the Shoalhaven and a handy resource provides up to date information for visitors, including a trip builder and other ways to give back as well as booking your trip to the area.
For many city folk, the Shoalhaven is home away from home, a place to escape and unwind, where friendly faces greet you on a white sand beach or café staff smile and know your coffee order from last time you stayed over. The south coast is open for business and welcomes you back to a place you can call home, put your feet up and use that annual leave you’ve got up your sleeve.
So many reasons to visit:
1. Wine and swim – The Shoalhaven has 11 cellar doors, many of them within minutes of the beach, 100 beaches in total! Have a morning walk or dip, then visit a winery and meet the maker, and have a unique experience such as a high tea, regional tasting plate, or behind the scenes tour.
2. Food and cute towns – The Shoalhaven has a knack for paddock to plate eateries, restaurants in beautiful scenery, with top chefs sea changing by the dozen.
Pair a gourmet getaway with boutique shopping in historic towns at beautiful boutiques and visit farmgates to collect local produce to take home along the way.
3. Wildlife and Sundowners – A Shoalhaven sunset has inspired many a happy hour, with our small bars and breweries serving up great vibes with local music.
The perfect end to a day exploring beautiful scenery, with fresh air on a dolphin cruise, or a coastal stroll meeting friendly local roos and birdlife.
4. Culture and Coffee – Shoalhaven coffee roasters have been rated amongst the top ten in the world (Hyper Hyper, Beanhunter 2019), there’s something to be said for the beautiful environment to get the creativity flowing.
From local brews to cultural activities like Arthur Boyds’ Bundanon, the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum, or just cute crafty local makers, the Shoalhaven has it covered.
Acting Tourism Manager, Shoalhaven City Council, Shannan Perry-Hall says: “The best way you can support our community is by booking a trip, so you can rejuvenate in the Shoalhaven.
