[ Clyde Coast ] [ Shoalhaven ] [ Ulladulla Region ]
When you see the magnificent sandy expanses of Wairo, Tabourie, Meroo, Racecourse, Merry and Pretty Beaches (and some that don't even have a name) in the northern part of the Clyde Coast region, you will see coastal Australia still close to the same condition Lieut James Cook viewed during his voyage of discovery along these shores in 1770. These are the "big" beaches where long stretches of golden sand are exposed to the mighty Pacific and the powerful natural force of the sea dominates. We also have our special "little" beaches, often protected from the sea by a headland or an aspect to provide more of a haven for a swim or a picnic (or a "point break").
When you visit us you should not expect the facilities and services of modern tourist centres. We have no 5 star hotels (but some wonderful guest houses), no cinemas, no casinos and no heated swimming pools. Even more surprising, there are no hotels, no clubs, no poker machines. Indeed, apart from the highway and the few main access roads to the villages, there are few sealed roads. Furthermore, there are no towns of any size, no TAB offices, no schools, no supermarkets, no McDonalds and no KFCs. These facilities are available in the bordering towns of Ulladulla and Batemans Bay (within a ½ hour's drive).
What the region does offer is comfortable and modern guest house, caravan park or motel accommodation (or even a cabin at a wildflower farm); a few quality restaurants and dining rooms and many things to do if you like the outdoors life as well as a rich local artistic colony.
