Sussex Inlet NSW Australia
Wreathed by a system of tidal canals, and tucked in between the magnificent St Georges Basin and rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean, Sussex Inlet is built for water-based adventures. Fishing, boating and kayaking are all popular in this waterfront town in the Shoalhaven region of the NSW South Coast.
A wonderful coastal escape, Sussex Inlet is around three hours’ drive south from Sydney or east from Canberra.
One of the best ways to explore the South Coast from Sydney is by car. The magnificent 140km Grand Pacific Drive begins just south of Sydney and weaves through one of the oldest national parks in the world to Stanwell Park and then over the stunning Sea Cliff Bridge.
The route hugs the Illawarra Escarpment to Wollongong and then takes you past Albion Park, Shellharbour, Kiama, Gerringong and Berry, before travelling on to Nowra, which is close to the white sand beaches and dolphins of Jervis Bay.
From Nowra Sussex Inlet is just a short 30mins drive south via Falls Creek, Tomerong, Bewong and Wandandian before taking the Sussex Inlet turn off on the Princes Hwy just south of Wandandian.
