Like no other place on earth

Discover the ideal adventure landscape and reconnect with nature on the Sapphire Coast of New South Wales. All year round our national parks are natural playgrounds and the lagoons and seas are our wonder-filled aquarium. It’s easy to immerse yourself in nature-based adventures and if you need a hand there’s plenty of locals to guide you along the way.

Explore artisan galleries, taste the freshest of produce from the land and the sea, sample local wine, study Aboriginal history and culture, and the history of the pioneers. Or lose yourself in nature, in whatever way you choose.

However you want to play, you will take from the Sapphire Coast a rare gift: a lighter heart, a clearer mind, a refreshed spirit, and a calmer soul.
