Holiday Accommodation in Currarong, NSW, Australia
Currarong is a glorious coastal sanctuary in the Shoalhaven region of New South Wales on the south coast of Australia. A popular holiday village, with many holiday homes and holiday accommodation in and around Currarong, the village is hugely popular among fishing enthusiasts, with some of the best fishing spots found here on the coast.
Things to See and Do
There’s some of the best world class fishing to be had here in and along the coast of Currarong, whether you like fishing directly off the beach, with the soft sand sinking in between your toes, or perched off the rugged rocks along the beachfront or deep sea ocean fishing. Charter a fishing boat or take a fishing tour out onto the open sea and enjoy your day out on the open waters.
Just a short way down the cliffs of Point Perpendicular is one of the only magical spots where fisherman can catch Marlin and Yellow Fin tuna from the shorelines.
The Beaches and Currarong Rock Pool
Currarong is surrounded by no less than fourteen beaches. For those that like to be Robinson Crusoe-esque, it is certainly a possibility here. Take your pick from the aptly named Honeymoon Bay or the weirdly titled, Cabbage Tree Beach.
Currarong is definitely one of the best places for both children and adults to have a dip in the refreshing ocean. The rock pool at high tide is the best time to experience the water, as the waves roll in and fill up the rock pool.
Go in at low tide with smaller kids so that they can play around and splash to their hearts content without as many people filling up the space.
The Point Perpendicular Lighthouse
Built way back in 1899, this historic landmark stands regally showing the entrance to Jervis Bay. Perched majestically on the sheer, rugged coastal cliffs around Currarong, the lighthouse has some of the most incredible panoramic views of the bay and out to sea. If you look carefully you may even be able to see the area where your holiday accommodation is.
Just off the Nowra Road, the lighthouse is a favourite spot for the adventurous local and visitor alike, with the sheer rock faces being a world famous delight for intrepid rock climbers from all over the world.
Another popular maritime themed attraction for visitors to Currarong is the wreck of the SS Merimbula. About 15 minutes away from Currarong on Beecroft Headland, it makes for a nice walk, even better if there are whales and dolphins doing their thing in the bay.
Family Picnic at Long Beach
You will be forgiven for thinking you have arrived not at Long Beach , which is just outside of Currarong Beach, and rather at a tropical island paradise. With velvet white sands lining the never-ending stretch of beach, the picnic spots look out over the twinkling azure waters in the bay.
A perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon, out of your holiday house ,with a wraparound, panoramic view of the seaside; while you relax under the delightful shade of a tall blue gum tree, letting time just pass you by.
The wonderful climate of Currarong is mild in both seasons, offering the perfect opportunity for visitors to come to their holiday houses all year round. The summer months from October to March, bring average temperatures ranging from 25C to 16C and the winter months a cooler 16C going down to 5C.
