Welcome to the Grand Pacific Drive

One drive. One Ocean. Endless Experiences

Road trippin is restricted right now, however we welcome you to explore the Grand Pacific Drive virtually until you hit the road again soon.

Grand Pacific Drive is a 140 kilometre scenic coastal drive taking you through lush rainforests starting in the Royal National Park, over the Sea Cliff Bridge and through the coastal townships of Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Shoalhaven.

There are endless experiences to be enjoyed along your way, from adrenaline-pumping adventure activities to delicious food and wine, family discoveries, natural wonders and too many beaches to count!

You can choose to make your way back to Sydney via the charming Southern Highlands or continue heading south to the Victorian border through the picturesque regions of Eurobodalla and Sapphire Coast.
