Welcome to South Coast NSW
While it can't compare weather-wise to the more-visited North Coast – rain is fairly regular – its scenic beauty is staggering. Rough, rustic national parks and traditional fishing towns harbour some of the nation's most idyllic beaches, from the white sands and calm turquoise water of amazing Jervis Bay to big surf strands along the whole stretch from the Royal National Park on Sydney's southern edge to Eden, near the Victorian border.
Eden is known for its great whale-watching, but you can see these migrating leviathans all along the coast in this region. Dolphins are ubiquitous and the seals and penguins at Montague Island make it a brilliant wildlife-watching destination.
