Easy, Affordable, Unforgettable: Family Adventures on the NSW South Coast

  • Family
    All Ages

It is no secret that Australians are spoiled when it comes to our bounty of natural beauty. Our environment is abundant in breathtaking landscapes that boast long coastal stretches, beautiful beaches, and lush national parks. When you get that stubborn hankering to take a break from the urban jungle and skip town to recharge the batteries (and don’t we all), there is no shortage of charming towns and unique experiences just waiting to accommodate.

The NSW South Coast is one such treasure trove that offers Sydneysiders an easy escape from the hustle and bustle. A road trip down the Princes Highway, beyond awe-inspiring highlights including the Royal National Park and the Sea Cliff Bridge, transports you to a holiday haven that offers families a breath of fresh air and so much more.
