Welcome to the Grand Pacific Drive

One drive. One Ocean. Endless Experiences

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 the Shoalhaven region, on the stunning South Coast of New South Wales.

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.

The Sapphire Coast is considered one of Australia’s premier whale-watching locations, with thousands of humpback whales visiting there coast between August- November each year to rest, feed and nurse their young. 

This year #sapphirecoast made worldwide headlines when a rare ‘super-group’ of more than 80 humpback whales were spotted feeding together on a bait ball!
