A stunning coastal getaway

The New South Wales south coast is famous for raw, uncrowded beaches, whale watching and quaint country towns.  Explore this coastal gem using the scenic cycling paths that follow the coastline, whilst having all the logistics looked after for you.

This cycling tour is an easy self-guided 4-day/3 night ride along the beautiful south coast of NSW.  Within each reach of Sydney, starting in the beautiful beachside suburb of Thirroul and following the coast south to the dramatic headland and lighthouse in Kiama. The route is primarily flat and runs mainly along cycle paths, and there is plenty to see and do along the way.

• Visiting the Nan Tien Temple, the largest Buddhist Temple in the Southern Hemisphere.

TESTIMONIAL

Easy riding, great track from Thirroul and so many gorgeous beaches.  Windang was such a surprise and the beach is stunning, recommend getting there early to enjoy this little paradise.  So many cafes and restaurants along the way made it easy, and the accommodation was spot on.  What a great trip!
