One of the most serene areas of Conjola is Monument Beach picnic area. Set behind the beach, this is the ultimate spot for families. You can walk along the isolated beach, clamber over the small headlands, throw in a fishing line, go for a paddle or surf, take a short bushwalk, or head to the monument that remembers the lives lost when the Walter Hood sank in 1870.

As you drive in, stop to admire the beautiful flowering natives, including waratahs, wattles and bush peas. And don’t be surprised if the only other living creatures around are the resident kangaroos and wallabies.

Set out along Nerindillah Lagoon walking track after lunch, and while you’re walking along the beach, look for sooty oystercatchers, sea eagles and the hooded plover, which is only found on the NSW south coast.
