Pristine beaches, stunning landscapes and real country towns: the Illawarra and Shoalhaven have all of these. This stretch of coast south of Sydney includes the vibrant city of Wollongong and the towns of Kiama, Nowra and Ulladulla, all offering a feast of history, music and art attractions. The region is rich in natural attractions: dramatic escarpment views, lush rainforest and rolling downs. Its waterways are especially magnificent, with a chain of sparkling beaches, Lake Illawarra, the mighty Shoalhaven River and the jewel of Jervis Bay. Its a great place to spend time out of doors, whether youre bushwalking, cycling, paddling or simply enjoying a picnic. If you know where to look, theres fresh seafood, numerous cafes that make the most of the setting, and lots of produce markets. Now all of the regions key attractions and activities are detailed in Best of the Illawarra & Shoalhaven, illustrated throughout with full-colour photography and accompanying navigational maps. Every destination and activity is described and detailed to ensure that minimum time is wasted and maximum time spent enjoying the sights and things to do.
