Enjoy a holiday to Culburra and book your accommodation with HomeAway

The small seaside town of Culburra is a popular holiday retreat especially those interested in fishing and surfing. With its fresh seafood and wonderful scenery, it’s the perfect getaway!

What to do while holidaying in Culburra:

Of course surfing is the thing to do in this seaside township. It boasts the two memorable surf beaches which are patrolled during the summer holiday period. Due to the location, these beaches provide a variety of surf conditions to suit every time of holiday maker including board riders, swimmers, body surfers and families with young children. Fishing is also a must when holidaying here with a wide variety of species of fish being caught off the beaches. Take the family on a picnic at the many picnic areas dotted around the town or take the boat out onto Lake Wollumboola via the boat ramp. Grab your racquets and play a round of tennis and squash at the local courts or bowling at the green. For something to do at night grab a bite to eat at the restaurants then listen to live bands perform at the club which are on show most weekends. Most days in summer you will look out to see to glimpses of dolphins lazily swimming and, in winter, migrating humpback whales!

Culburra’s Climate:

The climate is not tropical nor swelteringly hot however whatever the weather conditions, a stroll along the beach is in order. And on rainy days put your feet up and read a good book, the scenery is worth it!



Choosing holiday rentals at Culburra Beach, New South Wales

Culburra Beach, in New South Wales, is a water lover’s paradise, surrounded as it is on three sides by ocean, river and lake. In the Shoalhaven region on the South Coast, Culburra Beach is part of an incredibly diverse region of coastline, inland forests, mountains and rural retreats, all remarkably unspoiled. Visitors will find themselves spoiled for choice in the selection of holiday homes, including self-contained accommodation, apartments and villas.

Culburra Beach is a popular destination for Sydney-siders – the town is about a two-and-a-half drive south of the city – as well as holidaymakers from abroad, tempted by its rich fishing, great surfing beaches and the astonishing nature on display.

Making a splash

Originally known as Wheelers Point, Culburra Beach was given an Aboriginal name meaning “sand” in 1916, particularly apt considering its beautiful sandy beaches. The long beach is fronted by many holiday rentals, villas and houses, making a dream ocean-front break a reality for visitors. The town centre owes its smart layout to Walter Burley Griffin, the same town planner who designed Canberra’s cityscape – the sweeping, semi-circular streets and houses set back from the pavements help the small town appear to be much larger than it is.

But it is the long and sweeping surf beaches that are the main attraction for visitors to Culburra Beach – the eponymously-titled Culburra Beach and Warrain Beach. Surf clubs offer both beginners and experienced surfers the opportunity to test their board skills on the rolling swells that pour on to the shore.

Nature lovers will be thrilled to spot pods of dolphins in the bay during the summer months, while winter sees migrating humpback whales making their way across the sea.

Culburra Beach’s rich fishing grounds come from its position at the apex of two rivers – the Shoalhaven and the Crookhaven – which meet before flowing into the sea. Charter boats heading out to sea are equipped for big game fishing with tuna, marlin and snapper among the prized catches, while there is prawning available on the rivers.

A natural haven

The third water element bordering Culburra Beach is the ocean-fed Lake Wollumboola, southern New South Wales’ largest shallow, saline lagoon. This haven for migratory and local birds is a thrill for anyone interested in seeing nature at its best. Water birds use the lake as a refuge during droughts and many endangered and rare species, such as the green and golden bell frog, can be found here. Importantly, Lake Wollumboola has special cultural significance for the Jerrinja people and signposts around the lakeside explain what it means for Australia’s original inhabitants.

For even more startling Australian fauna and flora, Booderee National Park – a drive south of an hour or so from your holiday accommodation at Culburra Beach – boasts more than 200 species of birds, 30 species of land mammals and 180 species of fish.

A welcoming climate

The extremes of heat and humidity that can make other parts of Australia a challenge for visitors are fortunately not present in the temperate climate of New South Wales, which enjoys around 340 days of sunshine every year. Average summer temperatures are around 30°C with winter reaching an average 15°C. The spring and summer months, from November to February, are ideal for those wishing to enjoy an outdoor stay at Culburra Beach where the holiday rentals provide excellent accommodation and a great base for a break.

Everything you would want from wonderful furnishings, great amount of kitchen utensils, crockery and cooking pots and pans. House extremely clean with good quality clean linen. Would recommend a stay here.
