“Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living” – Unknown

Tourism Operators and locals are calling out for visitors to return to the Shoalhaven regions beloved coastal towns.

“Whilst some towns are rebuilding, most remain unaffected directly by bushfires and need your help. Visitors have the unique opportunity to snap up a booking on the South Coast when normally everything is booked out months in advance.” said Rob Crow, Chair of the Shoalhaven Tourism Advisory Group,  “Recovery is a long game and we need our visitors back more than ever. We also know it’s been a tough start to the year for everyone, Sydney and Canberra included, we have all been affected. Mental health is going to be key to a good 2020 for everyone, so we ask visitors if you do need to rejuvenate and have an extra break this year, make it a Shoalhaven road trip, we need your smiles and support!”
