It’s often overshadowed by flashier and more famous stops along the NSW South Coast, but that just makes this place even better.
Culburra Beach, a small coastal town in the Shoalhaven region about three hours south of Sydney, is about as quiet and laid-back as a holiday spot can be.
Sure, it may not be as well-known as Hyams Beach or Mollymook. It definitely doesn’t attract crowds of influencers and dominate Instagram feeds like the towns around Jervis Bay. It has nothing of the hustle and bustle of Bateman’s Bay – but it does have plenty of everything that makes for the perfect beachside holiday.
The caravan park is a traditionally popular place to stay for holiday-makers but Culburra Beach also has some truly impressive holiday rental homes available to book on sites like Booking.com.
The Art House is as spectacular as they come. The two-storey home, just 200m from the main beach, isn’t just ideally located but is a genuine delight in itself, with each of its rooms lavishly decorated with the owner’s own paintings, sculptures and other dazzling works of art.
