ShellharbourImagine pristine beaches without the high-rise and crowds, glorious restaurants and buzzing cafes, and plenty to do or space to do nothing at all. That’s Shellharbour. Just over an hour’s easy drive south of Sydney, and within three hours drive from Canberra, Shellharbour is framed between the sparkling waters of the Tasman Sea and the magnificent Illawarra Escarpment, with Lake Illawarra to the north and the Minnamurra River to the south.

Those elements of natural beauty also provide boundless opportunities for relaxing and exploring, whether you’re seeking a seaside or rainforest escape, an adventure experience or a great value family holiday.
