Do the Crookhaven Heads walk – Check out our heritage lighthouse and the Aboriginal totems by Uncle Noel that represent the rich local Aboriginal heritage. It’s breathtaking with the river on one side and ocean on the other. There are two great viewing platforms where you’ll see whales or seals if you’re lucky. More info here.

Picnic and paddle at Tilbury Cove – This spot is a favourite for people with little ones as it is the sheltered end of Culburra Beach with lagoon-like stillness. The grassed area is a favourite for sunset picnics with a glass of wine. It’s pet friendly too. Explore the rock pools around Penguin Head, you can even walk all the way around to Warrain Beach if you’re adventurous.

Hire a SUP or surfboard and either paddle past the breakers and Stand Up Paddle with our resident dolphins, or learn to surf where World Champion Tyler Wright did. Our champion Boardriders Club is in the national finals for a reason. The breaks rip for both beginners and experienced riders. Hire and lessons from Brett at Busted Surf Co. Or Peter from Culburra Beach Board Hire.

Fishing and Boating is our passion! With the Shoalhaven and Crookhaven Rivers meeting as they flow into the ocean, the fishing is tops. Head to the Crookhaven River or Orient Point boat ramps and launch your boat, or hire one from nearby Greenwell Point, We have some of the healthiest oysters and prawns around and we even have land-based Marlin and Kingfish Fishing from nearby Beecroft Penninsula. So, bring your boat and rods!

Walk your dog on the beach and meet our local pooches. We’re so lucky to have off leash beaches; just observe the times and clean up after your dog – easy! Let your pooch paddle and run in the sand while you burn a few calories from your holiday indlugences. Check out the Pets on Holiday Guide from Visit Shoalhaven.

Birdwatch and Kayak the Shoalhaven River or Lake Wollumboola and be at absolute peace with your surroundings. Set out early in the morning to see the most magnificent bird species, including one of the biggest migratory swan populations in the world. You’ll want to take your camera, it’s an ornithologist’s paradise. Really stunning.
