Get back to nature and explore rare littoral rainforests and waterfalls and along the trails of Macquarie Pass National Park. Bass Point is home to an aquatic reserve, Bushrangers Bay which is known for its excellent snorkelling and diving.
Tee off at one of our picturesque golf courses or enjoy some mini golf at “Shanx” Mini Golf located at The Links Shell Cove. Get peddling and hire bikes to enjoy a ride along the water’s edge on the extensive cycle ways in the area.
On the water (and there’s plenty of it) you can learn to surf by taking a lesson with a local surfing school or paddle out at the popular – and local favourite, “The Farm” which is a National Surfing Reserve. Lake Illawarra is a fabulous spot for a family picnic where the children can splash about in the shallow waters edge, walk and discover the Lake Illawarra Art Trail, give stand up paddle boarding a try or maybe or drop a line in.
Shellharbour is a recreational paradise with so much to offer, from the ocean to the escarpment. The choices of fun and relaxation are only limited to your imagination and energy levels, regardless of the time of year.
