The Clyde Coast
As you leave Ulladulla travelling south or Batemans Bay travelling north, you enter one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in New South Wales. The Clyde Coast comprises much of the spectacular catchment and adjoining coastline of the Clyde River which rises in the hinterlands west of Milton/ Ulladulla and follows the coast south and to the east of the Budawang Ranges to its mouth at the town of Batemans Bay. This is a special river, its waters being considered the cleanest of any major river on Australia's East coast.
The river is only one of the many 'stars' in the region's firmament. Within the Clyde Coast region you will find Pigeon House Mountain, one of the most distinctive natural landforms in NSW; some of the best and most unspoiled beaches on the coast; Pebbly Beach, home to the mythical 'surfing kangaroos' (a marketing ploy only) and Murramarang National Park, considered to be one of the most beautiful coastal parks in the state.
There is much more to discover on the Clyde Coast: our forests; the spectacular Budawangs; bushwalking ; the fabulous coastal lakes; our thriving arts & crafts; our extensive Koori and European cultural traditions; our fishing and surfing and an extensive range of accommodation alternatives for your family or adventure holiday, or for that secluded or romantic weekend.
This page and its attachments describes the amazing range of natural wonders, still in a pristine state, that this region contains. The Clyde Coast is also a region full of "special places". When you arrive, ask a local, and you might be shown a hidden rainforest valley, a thousand year old tree or a broad, open beach which shows no sign of human existence - not even a footprint in the sand.
A visitor to the Clyde Coast will find unparalleled rewards in the beauty of the unique natural attractions in the region. When you gaze across the vista of beach, forest and mountain from the summit of Pigeon House Mountain, you also will appreciate one of the most exceptional natural treasures in the state. Come and stay and experience it for yourself - when nature calls!
