Reconnect with nature

Discover the ideal adventure landscape and reconnect with nature on the Sapphire Coast of New South Wales, halfway between Sydney and Melbourne and just 3 hours drive from Canberra.  All year round our national parks are natural playgrounds and the lagoons and seas are our wonder-filled aquarium.

Explore artisan galleries, taste the freshest of produce from land and 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.
