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.

Killalea Beach – Shellharbour

Surf’s up at this popular beach (known as ‘The Farm’) in Killalea State Park, declared a National Surfing Reserve in 2009. 250ha of pristine coastal reserve and beaches are now protected for future generations to enjoy, and with beautifully-landscaped picnic and bbq areas, stunning views and avid surfers riding the waves, why not grab a board, or take a few lessons with Pines Surfing Academy, and join them?

The water-filled playground of Lake Illawarra – Shellharbour

Set up a picnic at Reddall Reserve on the foreshore of Lake Illawarra with playground, amenities and kiosk. Then change into swimwear and head to the water where kids can safely swim. The Lake is the perfect spot for hiring a boat or catamaran, fishing, and all manner of fun water sports.

Laser tag – Albion Park Rail, Shellharbour

Heaps of heart-thumping fun is up for grabs at C1 Speed, with a two-level Laser Tag Maze (the largest on the south coast) equipped with LASERTAG GEN 6 technology, interactive sound, hidden targets and UV lighting effects. Go head to head with a family opponent, or involve the whole gang for a team game.
