Dive into the idyllic South Coast
Located just 2.5 hours drive from both Sydney and Canberra, Nowra is the beating heart of the Shoalhaven region, and the gateway to NSW’s beautiful South Coast. For those looking to enjoy their retirement years, Nowra also offers the perfect blend of amenity and luxury – which is why we chose it as the home of
Dumaresq Retirement Village.
The rich natural beauty of this region is hard to match, and it invites exploration and relaxation. Outdoorsy types can take their pick from windswept walks along stunning Culburra Beach, or a day trip to Pigeon House Mountain, which is just 1.5 hours away and provides spectacular views of the entire region. And for a more laid-back take on nature, the calm waters of Jervis Bay invite leisurely boat cruises and summertime paddles. There’s no shortage of local vineyards, oyster farms and breweries to visit and indulge in along the way!
Culture is also plentiful in the Nowra area, with local libraries, cinema, and the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery, which houses an impressive collection of works by Arthur Boyd, amongst others. The town’s calendar of civic events, including New Year’s Eve races and fireworks at the Archer Racecourse, provides regular opportunities to get out and about.
