INSPO FOR FUN TIMES
Splash into Shellharbour
Just being near the water is enough to soothe the soul. But nothing beats getting into it!
When it comes to the great Aussie pastime of taking a dip in the ocean, you really are spoilt for choice in and around Shellharbour. But there’s also fun to be had on the lake and by going on an adventure to seek out secluded rainforest rock pools! Sounds like your weekend plans just got sorted 🙂
So you’ve seen people doing it. It looks fun. Now’s the time to give it a go!
Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is an awesome water activity. Great for those core muscles and balance, challenging but enjoyable – falling off is half the fun!
Grab some friends and learn on the calmer waters of the lake foreshore before you graduate to the surf.
Our friends at Stand Up Paddle Boarding Shellharbour will show you a good time.
Ride the Waves
Imagine the thrill of paddling onto a wave, popping up onto your feet and just gliding through the ocean. Once you try it you’re bound to get hooked!
Lucky for you, Killalea provides perfect conditions for learning to surf, and just so happens to be one of the most picturesque beaches along the Australian coast. Vaya and the team at Pines Surfing Academy will give you the tips and tricks to see you carving it up out the back on a fibreglass board in no time!
Refuel at The Farm Cafe while taking in this breathtaking view. You’ll certainly need it by the time you hike it up the hill!
Look a Bit Deeper
You might think you know Shellharbour. But do you really? There’s a whole other world waiting to be explored below the surface!
And it’s a paradise! Shellharbour Scuba & Photography provide scuba diving lessons at Bushranger’s Bay Aquatic Reserve, and they can teach you the ropes while discovering soft coral sponges, big blue groper, sea dragons and more! It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
And if donning the scuba gear feels a bit too next level, there’s plenty of marine life to be seen by grabbing a snorkel and floating around the sheltered bay.
There’s heaps to see around Bass Point Reserve on foot too! Follow the Coastal Heritage Walk signs, pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it!
Please Note: Due to COVID restrictions please check with each operator opening hours and booking requirements.
