Pyree

Pyree is also home to the historic Jindyandy Mill – a place where past and present come together in beautiful surrounds.

On the way out to Greenwell Point, Pyree is a cluster of buildings nestled in lush green pastures – the ideal place to stop for a coffee, lunch or to browse through the shops. The Jindyandy Cottages provide accommodation on site.

Greenwell Point

Greenwell Point, is a fishing village 15km east of Nowra. Originally a shipping port for the Shoalhaven, Greenwell Point is famous for its world-class fresh oysters, fish and other seafood available from take away and eat-in food outlets. Recreational activities include fishing, both estuary or deep sea, or try your luck with a rod and reel near the new boat ramps at the main wharf.

The Point Gallery and Craft Shop consists of a visitors information centre teamed with local art and craft. A variety of accommodation is available in town.

Culburra

Culburra Beach, is the regional centre for the coastal villages east of Nowra. With great surf beaches, there is plenty to do and when the water level is high, sailing, windsurfing and water skiing are all popular.

The walk around the headland adjacent to the historical lighthouse follows a well-developed track and provides good views over the whole of the Crookhaven Bight.

Callala Bay, Beach & Myola

For a tranquil setting with exceptional views of Jervis Bay and its surrounds, look no further than Callala Bay, Callala Beach and Myola.

Launch your boat to explore Jervis Bay’s pristine waters or take the family fishing off the pier and observe the sea life below.

For the more active, enjoy walks to Wowly Creek nature reserve and along the beach to Red Rock to take in views and fresh sea air or ride a bike along the many tracks to Callala Beach and Myola.

Why not hop into your kayak to explore the backwaters of Wowly and Callala Creeks, enjoy the safe shallows of the Callala Creek estuary or head to the Callala Country Club for a game of golf or lawn bowls.

Currarong

Currarong is a quiet coastal village located at the northern end of the rugged Beecroft Peninsula and excellent rock fishing can be found all around this area. Stop for great fish and chips at the local takeaway and enjoy a picnic in the nearby park.

A number of walks and sheltered swimming areas can be accessed from the road to Point Perpendicular.
