Holidaying was made to be easy on the NSW South Coast. The combination of surf and sand, lakes and rivers, waterfalls and rainforest produce such a diversity of attractions that every day is an adventure.
If you make your base at Berkeley, which is perched on the shoreline of Lake Illawarra, then you are already in the midst of the aquatic action.
The region round Berkeley and Shellharbour offers rural tranquility, magnificent beaches, friendly shopping and an exciting night and club life.
The lake, of course, offers a variety of water sports including sailing, prawning, fishing, water-skiing, canoeing and cruises. It is also a dream area for diving and snorkelling.
And, if you should tire of the coast, you can explore the rainforest escarpment - stepping stone to the scenic showcase of the Southern Highlands and its chain of quaint historic old towns and villages.
