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 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.

How’s the serenity?

Wander through the rainforest and towering eucalypts trees on your way to the #CascadesWaterfall located at the base of Macquarie Pass National Park in @visitshellharbour. 

The rainforest is home to lyrebirds, platypus and goannas so take your time to spot the wildlife. 

Bring binoculars for birdwatching and take a good look into the canopy for surprises. Then, finish up with a relaxing lunch at Cascades picnic area after you’ve all had enough walking for the day.

Montague Island in @eurobodalla is fascinating and certainly one for the those who love the outdoors! 
 
A sanctuary to seabirds, seals and whales, and rich in history, it truly is an unforgettable experience. Snorkel with seals, spot wildlife, surround yourself with stories and learn about the significance of Baranguba on a guided NPWS tour. 

Or for something really special, indulge in a weekend stay in the historic lighthouse keeper’s cottage 🙌
