“From the sublime coastline to the emerald hinterland, the Shoalhaven region of NSW is a lovely holiday destination. Enjoy magnificent beaches, spectacular national parks and memorable animal encounters, from kangaroos on the beach to dolphins and whales in the crystal blue of Jervis Bay. Relax on incredible white sands in Jervis Bay, home to bottlenose dolphins, fur seals, little penguins and sea dragons. Shoalhaven is known for its fun and relaxed surf culture, and you can catch a wave all-year round at beaches like Mollymook and Culburra Or explore the calm waters at sunset on a stand-up paddleboard adventure.”
