Orient Point: Where To Go / Sightseeing

The Point Gallery and Craft


The Point Gallery and Craft overlooks the beautiful Crookhaven River in the small fishing village of Greenwell Point.

The Gallery was set up in 2008 as a Community Art Gallery to showcase unique local art and craft of the residents of Greenwell Point and The Shoalhaven. Their local artisans produce ceramics, leatherwork, woodcraft, felting, knitting, mosaics and original paintings in many mediums from watercolours, acrylics, pastels and framed photographic prints and much more.

The Gallery has just started to stock locally produced jams, relishes and marmalade sold individually and in gift sets .

The Gallery also holds regular exhibitions of local artists works.

The Gallery also houses The Greenwell Point History Group display of historical photos and books.

The Gallery is an appointed Tourism Ambassador and provides information maps and literature of the Shoalhaven only.

Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse


The original Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse was constructed of timber in 1882 and located as part of the Shoalhaven Signal Station on the beach 200 metres to the west of the current lighthouse. The new brick lighthouse to the south of the mouth of the Shoalhaven River was commissioned in 1904 and the old wooden lighthouse was immediately demolished.

Aside from the Keepers Cottages at South Solitary Island, this is probably the most endangered lighthouse in New South Wales, which should be of great concern to lighthouse enthusiasts and the community at large.

The lighthouse is located on the south side of the entrance to the Shoalhaven River just east of Nowra.

Tilbury Cove

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.
