South of Sydney, beyond Botany Bay and the industrial hinterland of Wollongong, the South Coast of New South Wales is a rugged paradise of big bays, spectacular geology, and long, empty beaches. Dark rivers of tannin-stained water curl down from the inland forests where the big trees are still kings. The rich waters of Jervis Bay and the Tasman Sea are crammed with oceanic wildlife, and all along the South Coast you can go whale watching, swim with dolphins, and commune with seals and pelagic birds. But there’s more to this part of Australia than just wilderness.
Many of the region’s 5-star hotels are to be found in the South Coast’s main towns, such as Bateman’s Bay and Merimbula. But travellers in this wild region will also discover luxury hotels, eco-retreats and glamorous day spas in the most unlikely of places: hidden away in quiet forests, beside reflective lagoons, or on breath-taking headlands. Mixed in with these superb places to stay are some of Australia’s finest epicurean experiences. Local seafood and the freshest of local produce grace the menus of the South Coast’s world-class restaurants. You might even chance upon a Rick Stein eatery!
