Local Attractions

Culburra is just a short 20 minute drive from Nowra and only a couple of hours South of Sydney. Our little beach community is well serviced by a fantastic range of shops, cafes and restaurants, but the surrounding area is also well worth exploring. Most importantly, Culburra Beach Motel is only a short drive from all the top local attractions!

The Shoalhaven is renowned for its contrasts. Magnificent beaches, stunning coastal walks and idyllic surf are all available for you to enjoy. By contrast, inland, you can visit historic villages and sample delicious local produce and wine. In addition, we are lucky enough to be visited by Humpback Whales each year during their annual migration between May and November. Dolphins also frequent Jervis Bay and can often be seen from the beaches.
