As a favourite holiday destination, taking a trip to the South Coast is on many a traveller’s bucket list when visiting Australia. Not only can you enjoy the famous surf, historical coastal towns, and sandy beaches, there’s a variety of activities, tours and local villages off the beaten track for you to explore.
At Friendly Transfers we want you to have the best experience and not worry about a thing. That’s why our driver will pick you up from your hotel or home in a luxury vehicle ready for your Sydney South Coast private tour and a day of sea air and coastal panoramas.
We understand that every traveller is unique and has different tastes, that’s why you’ll be able to spend the day exploring what’s important to you at your own pace with our hire driver and car.
If you need inspiration on where to visit, we’ve handpicked some Friendly Transfers Favourites below and will happily help you tailor your itinerary.
Take in the sheer majesty of the coastline of Wollongong at the Sublime Point Lookout where you can enjoy the sea, rainforest, and beaches in one stunning panoramic view. For avid walkers the Sublime Point Track is 850 metres of hard terrain taking an average of 45 minutes to complete. But just know that the varied views are well worth the effort.
Thirsty after visiting the lookout? Take a “loaf” off at the LOAF Café for a morning tea stop. Whether you’re into great coffee or loose leaf native herbal tea, they have something for everyone. Including some excellent vegan options. It’s a great atmosphere before you head off for the rest of the day.
Exploring the beautiful and historic town of Kiama should be high on your itinerary as there’s plenty to get through. The famous, and largest Blowhole, Kiama Lighthouse, volcanic rock formations, and coastal walks are all options, and this is just before lunch. You can also enjoy the arts trail, ocean pool, weekly farmers market, or just enjoy the many historical homes build in the 1800s.
With a market garden, farm, shop, and restaurant on site there’s plenty to keep you busy at Mountain Ridge Wines. Often showcasing live music, you’ll enjoy picturesque views, delicious food and the option for a tasting tour or experience of the award-winning wines at the Cellar Door.
Head to Shoalhaven Heads for a wine tasting at the Two Figs Winery established by Shane and Alison Bricker. This boutique winery sources fruit both locally and onsite and has a strong focus on long-term sustainability. It allows you to sample premium wines whilst taking in breathtaking views over the Shoalhaven River.
Established as a vineyard in the late 1980s, Coolangatta Estate has an extensive and diverse history long before it focused on its award-winning wines. Not only can you enjoy walking tours and wine tasting, but you can also book personalised tours of the colonial history and see inside Mr Berry’s room that isn’t accessible to the general public.
A favourite experience for many, the Jervis Bay Wild Cruise has stunning uninterrupted views of the sea and white sand beaches. Choose a dolphin watching cruise on the Port Venture which is a wheelchair accessible vessel with summer boom netting. You’ll need to allow a couple of hours to enjoy this experience. Paddle in the water whilst watching dolphins feed in the reef or play on the bow.
If time permits, the chauffeured drive back up the coast delivers stunning views as you drive through Gerringong and Gerroa, with a visit to the antique haven of Berry. With art stores, fashion, and jewellery galore, if you only have time for one thing then we recommend the famous Donut van. Established 55 years ago and after travelling Australia its permanent home is now in Berry.
