Sea Cliff Bridge - Grand Pacific Drive, South Coast NSW

Grand Pacific Drive encompasses some of the most spectacular scenery and coastline in New South Wales and Australia.  

Discover the beauty of the South Coast with the drive starting just 45 minutes south of Sydney's CBD at the entrance to the Royal National Park (world's second oldest), the 140km coastal drive takes you through rainforests, quaint seaside villages and traverses along the iconic 665 metre Sea Cliff Bridge.

The Grand Pacific Drive then makes its way into the bustling city of Wollongong and through the beautiful coastal towns of Shellharbour and Kiama, passing rolling hills, wineries and dairy farms on the way to the Shoalhaven.

The drive ends in the spectacular Shoalhaven and from here you can experience the `beyond' to the greater South Coast to the Victorian boarder or head back through the Southern Highlands and back to Sydney or extend your adventure south to Australia's Capital City, Canberra!

With endless beaches, activities and adventures, delicious food and wine, you will discover some beautiful places along the Grand Pacific Drive.
