If you are staying with us at The Haven, and want to do some bush walking or explore some stunning natural sites these are our recommended places –
Bombo Geological site – just South of Bombo Beach – 25 mins away
This was once an old basalt quarry, hence the name, but don’t let that put you off. The amazing basalt towers and sea wall where waves crash, sending plumes of rainbow tinted spray into the air and the tranquil sea pools at the base of the rocks make it one of the most popular local sites for wedding photographers and it has even featured in car and fashion adverts.
30-45 minute circuit . Easy walk if you take the left path which winds down to the flat circular walking track, right hand path goes up for great views and a rocky path down to the flat area.
Bomaderry Creek Walk accessed off Narang Road, Bomaderry,signs on the left side of the road. 15 minutes awayHead South on the riverside track for amazing rock overhangs and caves along the river, ancient gums and lots of birdlife and native flowers.
5km return – Medium grade, some steep places. Walking shoes needed as there are rocky parts and steps cut into the bank and over boulders. A shorter flatter walk along the top of the rocks and through trees lies off to the right of the track heading northwest.
Bens Walk – accessed off Nowra Showground where you can park. 20 minutes away
Easy loop walk turning left along the river bank and over a rock bridge to flat grassy meadows on the North side of the river then back across a metal bridge towards the carpark.
Drawing Room Rocks – accessed off Woodhill Mountain Road. 17 minutes away, parking layby off road.
