The South Coast area refers to the narrow coastal belt from the Shoalhaven district in the north to the border with Victoria in the south, in the South Eastern part of NSW.
An area interlaced with beaches, national parks and lakes, what better place to disconnect, relax and appreciate what you see when the world stops a little. Imagine finishing work at your local school and heading down to the beach to enjoy the striking blue water or perhaps visiting a cafe to indulge in the local produce.
There are four main geographic regions in the South Coast: the Illawarra (including Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama), the Shoalhaven (including Nowra, Ulladulla and Bomaderry), the Eurobodalla Coast (including Narooma, Moruya and Bateman’s Bay) and the Sapphire Coast.
