The coast, which includes sandy beaches as well scenic coves, is an ideal location for those that enjoy a gentle stroll or a sunbathing session. It’s also a popular destination for joggers, due to its somewhat secluded atmosphere. The sea itself is suitable for the likes of surfing and kayaking.
Tours regularly head into the Tasman Sea for a spot of dolphin and whale watching, which is particularly successful during the later months of the year as these creatures migrate south. It’s also a good location for a spot of deep sea fishing. Seals Rock and the Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse are favoured attractions in the region.
The Great Lakes make for an ideal recreational spot. Guided tours are a great way to see the major features, including a vast wildlife, whilst there are also a number of walking/jogging routes that traverse the region. Mountain bikers are a regular sight in the area, thanks to the diverse terrain. Four wheel drive tours are also popular.
Other activities that can be found in this part of the New South Wales coast include tennis, golf, bowling, sandboarding and dune riding, and horse riding.

Guests can also enjoy the scenery provided by the regions forests and National Parks, of which there are many.
