Places nearby Currarong

Currarong

This sleepy little village sits at the northern edge of the dramatic Beecroft Peninsula, known for its spectacular sandstone cliffs.

Currarong, 33 kilometres South East of Nowra is great for swimming, surfing, fishing and prawning. Popular with holiday makers, Currarong's unique location means it often has different weather conditions to nearby Callala, Culburra and Nowra.

Take an easy walk from Currarong, such as Wreck Walk where you can see the ghostly remains of SS Merimbula or the three hour Trig Station Walk.

The protected main beach, Abrahams Bosom, has good picnic grounds with barbecue facilities.

Beecroft Peninsula has a spectacular sheer cliff face arising 75 metres from the ocean, and is the site of the Point Perpendicular lighthouse. At the right time of year this is one of the best points along the coast to spot whales, dolphins and seals.

Honeymoon Bay, a popular camping and picnic spot, is nearby.

Currarong: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Point Perpendicular Lighthouse and Lookout


Drive through natural scrub and beautiful spring wildflowers to Point Perpendicular Lighthouse, and the spectacular escarpment at Jervis Bay. There is no access to the inside of the lighthouse, but the view from the grounds of the lighthouse alone, makes this drive worthwhile.

The light station was a major coastal light in a network of navigational aids operated and maintained by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority. It has now been replaced by a new lighthouse, but the building remains and is of historic significance.

The gravel road to the lighthouse may deteriorate during bad weather and at times the road is closed because of Naval gunnery training exercises.

Abrahams Bosom Reserve


Features of the scenic reserve include the beach, a natural rock pool, creek, scenic walking tracks and picnic facilities. Make sure to take detours to the stunning Gosangs Tunnel and Mermaid Inlet from the main walks for spectacular scenery.

The Abrahams Bosom Reserve has two interesting walks:

The first is The Wreck Walk - a 2.5 kilometre return walk that takes a leisurely one hour, on an easy gradient and takes in the site of the wreck of the S.S. Merimbula which ran aground at 1am on March 27, 1928.

The second is The Trig Walk - which includes the Wreck Walk, is a hillier walk of nine kilometres and takes about three hours return. The feature of this walk is the panoramic view from the Trig Station.

Both walks feature coastal seascape scenery of beaches, estuaries, ocean, rock formations, massive sandstone cliffs and headlands.

Access to the Beecroft Peninsula is prohibited when Defence Forces training is progress. Contact Shoalhaven Visitors Centre for closure dates before visiting.

Culburra Surf Beach


Warrain Beach is the surfing beach for the settlement of Culburra. It begins on the south side of Penguin Head and runs to the south for 3.7 kilometres past the usually blocked mouth of Wollumboola Lake to the low rocks at Kinghorn Point. Culburra Surf Beach is great for swimming, surfing and scuba diving.

Car parking is provided at the surf club and by the north side of the lagoon entrance, while in the south a track leads off the Currarong road to the back of Kinghorn Point.

Due to the beach being recognised as a popular surfing destination it is not recommended to take children under the age of seven or children who can't swim. The beach is patrolled during summer.
