The Shoalhaven is, after Sydney, the most popular tourist destination in New South Wales.

The most well-known part of the Shoalhaven is the Jervis Bay area. The area is approximately 160km along the coastline, including 109 beaches, which allegedly possesses the whitest sand in the world, as well as pristine natural Australian bushland. The Shoalhaven area is home to numerous species of native Australian flora and fauna.

Get in

Access to Nowra, the gateway of the Shoalhaven, is via the Princes Highway or via the NSW Cityrail (note that this is the end of the line and there are NO train lines south of Bomaderry until you are well inside Victoria).

The local bus connects you from the train station in Bomaderry to Stewart Place in Nowra. If the bus isn't around it is only a 10 minute walk across the bridge veering right at the Information Centre. For those who require the Nowra Information Centre is just over the bridge on the southern side on the left. Open 7 days.

Get around

There is a public transport network available within the Shoalhaven area and you can find bus timetables at the train station and at Stewart Place. Stewart Place is also the stop for interstate buses travelling up and down the coast. The most well known of these is Premier Motor Service

Rent a Cars at $48 per day are available to explore the adjacent coast through the Riverhaven Motel on the south side of the bridge. An indication of public transport costs in the area is $9 one way for a bus ride to Huskinsson.
