If you fancy a feed of fresh prawns, then Culburra on the shores of Wollumboola Lake, about 20km east of Nowra, is your sort of town.
The lakeside resort and its twin village at the northern end of Culburra Beach, Orient Point, present a fabulous haven for fishing, prawning and crabbing.
Culburra offers the complete marine package, centred on the surfing beach: swimming and surfing, sailing and sail-boarding, surf, rock, river and estuary fishing.
Orient Point looks inland over the estuary formed at the mouth of the Crookhaven River. Lending itself to pleasant sailing and fishing, this sheltered waterway can be accessed through the fishing hamlet of Greenwell Point which is reputed to have taken its name from a local Aboriginal medicine man skilled in the treatment of snakebite and toothache.
Standing guard over the mouth of the Crookhaven is Comerong Island which was formed when pioneer settler Alexander Berry used convict labour to dig a canal to allow ships a more convenient passage into the Shoalhaven River to the north.
