Australian Beaches: Southern NSW

Heading south from Sydney on the South Coast of New South Wales, is the area called the South Coast where the beaches are less inhabited and more dramatic.

The region includes Wollongong, Kiama, the Shoalhaven towns of Jervis Bay, Nowra, Mollymook and Ulladulla, while Eurobodalla towns include Batemans Bay, Moruya and Mogo. The southernmost towns of Bega, Merimbula, Pambula and Tathra are on the Sapphire Coast.

Along the coastline you can take in stunning scenery and coastal views along the 22 km Kiama Coast Walk, or the 31 km Light to Light Walk on the Sapphire Coast. There are also some great nature-based camping spots along the coast at Dalmeny, Moruya Heads and Murramanang.

I had heard a lot about the beauty of the South Coast but was not prepared for such stunning scenery and enchanting coastal villages. It was yet another example of why Australia is renowned for having some of the best beaches in the world!

    Great photos and a big temptation to get on the road. Love the idea of stunning beaches, cliffs, and pretty villages.

      It all brings back very pleasant memories of our time travelling around the coastline of Australia. It does give me itchy feet again too! :)

    Lovely photos Kathy. there are a couple you’ve shown that I’ve not visited. I will have to rectify that oversight.

      The South Coast of NSW is a lovely spot. I had no idea it had such beauty and I loved the greenery and rolling hills around Kiama.

    do you know I had never considered that NSW had a south coast – I thought that belonged to Victoria. But obviously they do! My feet are getting itchy just looking at your pics Kathy. I’m longing to go on the road again.

      I think it is a best kept secret Jill. It is popular with Sydney and Canberra tourists but I had heard little about it until I saw it with my own eyes. It was stunning!

    The book I’m currently writing is based in a fictitious town between Narooma and Eden so this pictorial post was very inspiring and helpul Kathy!

      Oh really? I guess I would know that if I had the time to read your drafts! I’m very time poor at the moment and have barely had time to do any writing (or reading). I am going to make time – I promise. :)

    I’ve only ever visited this area once – a VERY long time ago! Pilchard has it on his list of places to go for the birding – but I’ll stick to these awesome beaches!

      Oh yes, the South Coast of NSW is well worth a visit. There are so many beautiful spots along the coastline and the beaches, as you see, are relatively untouched and pristine.

    Hi Kathy, I have lived in the Mollymook area for 12 years & have never taken the beauty of the beaches for granted. Even on a grey autumn day like today.

      Ulladulla and Mollymook – such strange names! It is a beautiful area however and I enjoyed visiting your lovely coastline. Sometimes a grey sky makes the sea look even bluer, so I don’t mind photographing them under these conditions. Thank you for dropping by my blog :)
