Shoalhaven Coast

Just two hours from Sydney on the NSW South Coast, the Shoalhaven Coast wine region offers visitors a gourmet paradise with sustainable seafood, fresh produce, elegant wineries and acclaimed restaurants uniquely situated alongside pristine beaches and spectacular national parks.

What you can do there

Visitors can enjoy the beautiful Seven Mile Beach and go swimming, surfing or fishing, and have memorable animal encounters, from kangaroos on the beach to dolphins and whales in the blue of Jervis Bay. Shoalhaven is one of Australia’s only wine regions located by the coast and is home to 18 vineyards with cellar doors. Shoalhaven Coast wineries have begun to feature regularly in national wine shows. The region’s signature French red grape chambourcin and other warm climate varietals such as Semillon and sauvignon blanc pair nicely with local seafood.
