5 Places to Stay in Shoalhaven

Forget going overseas, a roadtrip in your own backyard is the perfect escape. 

Need a reason to get away? Helping local communities might just be the perfect excuse. As Destination NSW has said, “By staying and spending in towns, regions and cities in NSW and sharing the love on social media, you’ll help bushfire and drought-affected communities get back on their feet.” 

So if you’ve decided to pack up the car and head out of Sydney for a weekend or two, the Shoalhaven region and New South Wales south coast is the perfect place to explore. With hundreds of accommodation options, from camping to five-star resorts, you’re bound to find one that suits your holiday style...

If you’re looking for 5-star luxury you can’t beat Bannisters By The Sea. With uninterrupted panoramic views of the ocean and Mollymook beach at your doorstep, it truly is the perfect seaside retreat. Relax in a stylish suite, indulge in a penthouse and sleep peacefully among the treetops, or book out entire beach houses for you, your family and friends. 

Extra perks:
The inhouse Rick Stein seafood restaurant, rooftop pavilion, pool bar and day spa services to name a few…

If glamping is your preference Paperbark Camp in Jervis Bay has a wide range of safari-style tents to pick from. Each elevated campsite is nestled amongst the eucalyptus and paperbark trees to make you feel like you’re one with nature, and features full insect screening to keep you safe from the creepy crawlies.

Extra perks:
If boiling your own billy doesn’t appeal to you The Gunyah, their own restaurant, reception and bar is just a short stroll from your tent.
