The South Coast refers to 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, Australia. The NSW South Coast is a beautiful, rolling seaboard of spectacular coastline and breathtaking scenery. The crystal-clear waters, quiet beaches and stunning national parks make the South Coast an ideal place to escape. Make the most of this unique region through adventure and family activities such as bushwalking, fishing, diving and canoeing.
Stretching over 600km, from The Royal National Park just south of Sydney all the way to the Sapphire Coast in the state’s south, there's plenty to explore and discover on the NSW South Coast. There are more than 30 national parks, and marine and nature reserves spread between the coast and the hinterland. Explore relaxed towns and villages nearby at your leisure, or discover tranquil picnic spots and diverse native wildlife around the national parks.
The region includes Wollongong and surrounds, the Shellharbour area, the Kiama area (including Gerringong and Gerroa), the Shoalhaven towns of Jervis Bay, Nowra, Mollymook and Ulladulla, the Eurobodalla towns of Batemans Bay, Moruya and Mogo. The southernmost towns of Bega, Merimbula, Pambula, Eden and Tathra are on the Sapphire Coast.
Batemans Bay is a town in the South Coast region of the state of New South Wales, Australia. Batemans Bay is administered by the Eurobodalla Shire council. The town is located adjacent to the Princes Highway (Highway 1) about 280 kilometres (170 mi) from Sydney and 760 km (470 mi) from Melbourne. Canberra is located about 151 km (94 mi) to the west of Batemans Bay, via the Kings Highway. The Clyde River empties here into the Tasman Sea. It is the closest seaside town to Canberra, making Batemans Bay a popular holiday destination for residents of Australia's National Capital. Geologically, it is situated in the far southern reaches of the Sydney Basin. Batemans Bay is also a popular retiree haven, but has begun to attract young families seeking affordable housing and a relaxed seaside lifestyle. Other local industries include oyster farming, forestry, eco-tourism and retail services.
While Batemans Bay is the largest on the coast south of Nowra, it maintains its small town atmosphere and welcomes its visitors with its fabulous estuary location, country hospitality and charm, an unspoilt natural environment and with attractions and facilities for tourists of all ages and preferences.In addition to its own attractions, 'the Bay' is well located for driving, trekking or undemanding walks in the Clyde Valley and the spectacular mountainous national parks that protect its sources. Pigeon House Mountain for example, is less than an hour's drive north. Batemans Bay and its neighbouring area boast some of the most spectacular and unspoiled coastline in New South Wales.
Famous for its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, Jervis Bay is a natural wonderland just waiting for you to explore. The hamlets of Huskinsson and St Georges Basin provide small town charm and great bases from which to explore the region.
