Things to Do

 

Being surrounded by beaches, headlands, rivers, mountains, islands, national parks and more, means that you will never be short of things to do when staying at Kioloa Beach Holiday Cabins.  Here is a run down of just some of the most popular local activities;

Fishing

Kioloa offers some of the best fishing in New South Wales.  We are located only a few hundred metres from a boatramp and breakwall to give boat fisherman easy access to the two local islands, Brush and Belowla, along with countless reef systems, sand banks, ship wrecks etc which are home to all manner of species from the local staple catches of Flathead, Morwong and Snapper, to pelagic species such as Kingfish, Tuna and Marlin.  If you don’t have a boat it doesn’t matter as there is excellent beach and rock fishing (famous rock fishing location Snapper Point is only 750 metres or so away) and the local breakwall at Kioloa Beach is popular for children catching squid.

Bushwalking

We are only two beaches away from Murramarang National Park which offers excellent bushwalking, from easy walks along the secluded beaches and headlands, to the steep climb of Durras Mountain for those feeling energetic.  We are also only an hour away from famous Pigeon House Mountain in the Morton National Park which is one of the South Coast’s most recognisable landmarks and was discovered and named by English explorer Captain James Cook on his maiden voyage navigating the East Coast of Australia in 1770.

Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

Kioloa is very fortunate in that it not only has one, but two, offshore Islands that are only a short boat trip away.  Belowla Island the smaller of the two is very popular with snorkeling and spear fishing, whilst Brush Island the big brother offers fantastic Scuba Diving including the partial remains of a shipwreck SS Northern Firth and an offshore pinnacle (Brush Island Pinnacle) that offers world class Scuba Diving.

Wineries

South Coast Wineries, although not as big and famous as their Hunter Valley cousins, offer a unique experience without the large crowds, but with plenty of good wine and views!  The two nearby Wineries are Bawley Vale Estate (approximately 5 minutes driving time away) and Fern Gully Winery (approximately 10 minutes driving time away) are well worth a visit

Surfing

There is no doubt that Kioloa and nearby Bawley Point offers world class surfing.  So much so that in recent years the secret is out and it is not unusual to see the world’s best surfers here during times of big swells.  The area has truly magnificent reef breaks, both left and right handers, along with plenty of good beach breaks.  If you want to know the best places well unfortunately you will have to go exploring and find them yourself.  As the saying goes ‘look and you shall find’ 🙂

Ulladulla and Batemans Bay

If outdoor activities is not your cup of tea, or perhaps the weather is not conducive, the nearby towns of Ulladulla and Batemans Bay have plenty of shopping options including Kmart (Batemans Bay) and Target (both) along with plenty of specialty shops.  For the kids Ulladulla has a great indoor fun park called Funland and both towns have cinemas.  While you’re on the way to Batemans Bay why not stop in at Clyde River Berry Farm where for a very small fee you can pick a bucket load of your own Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries and Raspberries.

Mogo Zoo

Located in the cute little township of Mogo, about 45 minutes south of Kioloa Beach Holiday Cabins, Mogo Zoo is a world-class zoo that is recongised worldwide for it’s work with endangered animals.  This zoo should definitely be on your list of things to do when holidaying in Kioloa.  Whilst your in Mogo the township also has some great chocolate and fudge shops along with the obligatory souvenir shops.
