Nowra is located 160 kilometres south-southwest of the state capital of Sydney, with its twin-town of Bomaderry. On the banks of beautiful Shoalhaven River, Nowra is a delightful town on the NSW South Coast with intriguing museums, fascinating galleries and enchanting river cruises. You’ll enjoy delicious food and wine experiences and the Shoalhaven region’s main town is close to gorgeous beaches, too. It is the commercial hub of the Shoalhaven, taking its name from the Aboriginal word meaning “camping place” or “black cockatoo”.

For breathtaking panoramas of the river and beyond, stroll along Ben’s Walk and stop at Hanging Rock. The wide river is popular for fishing, boating, kayaking and river cruises.

There are some good local bushwalks within the Nowra district, notably Ben’s Walk which is an easy, shady and well-graded riverbank walk winding beside the Shoalhaven River, affording excellent views of the local district.

A short drive from the city centre is the Navy’s Fleet Air Arm Museum – the largest aviation museum in Australia.

Shoalhaven Heads is a beautiful beachside village pearched along the Shoalhaven River. It is home to Seven Mile Beach, a natural attraction for the whole family.
