    It is still a bit cold down that way at the moment but Shellharbour has two excellent surf beaches and has an excellent dive site called Bass Point, which is a marine park, so if diving is one of your hobbies there are three dive shops in town that has all the gear. The night life is nothing to write home about but there are some good restaurants in the town that don't cost an arm and a leg. Don't hesitate to ask for any other info that you might want.

So there's a bit to see down there... w
