Touring Around

28Oct

The unspoilt natural beauty of the southern coastline of New South Wales unfolds in a series of bays and coves. Little townships, many with interesting histories, are known for their fine food and wines, and great country markets.
You will find the Shoalhaven District has plenty of attractions to offer and Coral Tree Lodge is an ideal base for exploring the region, either at your leisure or on some of the popular day tours available.

There are the crystal clear blue waters of Jervis Bay, popular for scuba diving and dolphin watching; Morton National Park for spectacular bushwalks; the quaint villages of Berry and Kangaroo Valley for craft shopping and Devonshire Teas; wine tasting at one or more of the six excellent local wineries including the award winning Coolangatta Estate; plus galleries and museums such as Arthur Boyd’s estate at Bundanoon and the Fleet Air Arm and Naval Museum at HMAS Albatross in Nowra ….. Just to name a few!

Jervis Bay

28Oct

Jervis Bay is located 35 minutes from the Coral Tree Lodge and it has unspoilt and secluded bays, crystal clear waters and beautiful beaches to explore on foot, by boat, diving swimming or snorkelling. Located on the southern shores of Jervis Bay, Hyams Beach is known for the whiteness of the sands and the sparkling clarity of the water.

Huskisson is a great base from which to enjoy the best of Jervis Bay’s many natural attractions.

Take a dolphin-watching cruise from Huskisson or a whale-watching cruise between June and November and visit the fascinating Lady Denman Maritime Museum with the magnificently-restored Lady Denman ferry from Sydney Harbour. Nearby Sussex Inlet is a quiet but spirited holiday town with excellent water sports facilities.
