Only 2 hours south of Sydney, the Shoalhaven is a must for city slickers looking for an escape. With 165km of coastline and over 100 beaches you’re sure to find yourself a slice of paradise. For those whose idea of paradise is less conventional, feel the call of the Budawang Wilderness, go rock climbing at Nowra, scale the sea cliffs around Jervis Bay or camp and canoe in Kangaroo Valley on Lake Yarunga.
