The spectacular NSW south coast spans a region over 600km – from Shellharbour (on the outskirts of Wollongong) to Kiama, Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla and the Sapphire Coast.
Eurobodalla Botanic Gardens – Batemans Bay
Relax and commune with nature in these beautiful grounds, bursting with 2000 species of plants, trees and shrubs of the region – and home to kangaroos, wallabies, bandicoots, possums, echidnas, snakes, lizards, frogs and many birds. The 42ha Gardens are part of the Mogo State Forest and include the amazing Children’s Play Space, café and picnic and BBQ facilities.
It’s a gold rush! – Mogo
Step back in time at The Original Gold Rush Colony and pan for real gold! Daily, guided tours will give you some insight into panning techniques and a few tips to help you strike it lucky! A fantastic day outing for the whole family (or stay onsite) – there’s even theme park attractions including a maze, train rides and Gold Rush Mini golf.
Fresh fruit gelati – Bermagui
An arrangement with local growers, to supply fresh fruit in exchange for free gelati, has proved a winning recipe for the quirky and super-popular Bermagui Gelati Clinic. With mouth-wateringly delicious artisan gelato on the menu this is a must-visit for families holidaying in the Eurobodalla region. The kids will thank you!
