The small regional park of Bomaderry Creek is nested in the town of Nowra, so it’s a perfect getaway: easy to access, but you are suddenly in the wild, watching Kookaburras and listening to Lyrebirds while walking between a quiet creek and small mossy cliffs.

Access

  • Trail head is at the Bomaderry Creek picnic area (sometimes also called the Narang Rd picnic area) 34 50 43 S 150 35 28 E.
  • By car: park your car at the picnic area, on Narang Rd, in Nowra.
  • By train or bus: Bomaderry/Nowra train station is a 2 kms (30 mins) walk away from the trail head. From Sydney it’s a 3 hours trip, with a change in Kiama. Check out the Shoalhaven transport guide for details.

Facilities: flush toilets, gas barbecues, picnic tables and drinking water at the picnic area, but camping is not allowed.
