NEW SOUTH WALES
Along the south coast's untouched coastline there are surfing beaches and sheltered coves. In the Jervis Bay region much of the coastline is scalloped by white beaches, and Hyams Beach has been acclaimed as the whitest sand on earth. At Huskisson, dolphin watch cruises head out into the bay.
The resort town of Bateman's Bay is close to a string of untouched beaches. Cruise the sparkling waters, explore the hinterland, fish from the beach, estuary or rocks, or just relax on the beach. Daily cruises sail upriver past historic Nelligen, with its old steamer wharf. At Pretty Beach, Depot Beach and Pebbly Beach in Murramarang National Park, north of Batemans Bay, don't be surprised to be sharing the beach with some tame eastern grey kangaroos.
Further south is Narooma, the place for watersports, and Montague Island which offers a close up view of all kinds of wildlife including Australian fur seals, fairy penguins, whales and seabirds. Nearby, the National Trust classified village of Central Tilba appears today as it did in 1904. In the beautiful green valleys of the hinterland is Bega, a town famous for its cheese. More seaside towns offering the magic of surf, golden sand, fishing and boating include Merimbula, Eden, Tuross Head, Broulee, Bermagui and Tathra.
