On the far south coast of NSW is a startling area of untouched beauty. Nadgee Nature Reserve is a haven for those who relish getting back to nature and thrive on peace and quiet. The only sign of life along long stretches of sand might be footprints left by wallabies. Swim in pristine lakes or walk along sandstone cliffs, peering into the coastal heath to see native wrens and little wattlebirds. If you fancy fishing, you’re in luck – there is superior beach, estuary and lake fishing throughout the reserve.

At Nadgee’s north end is the family-friendly town of Wonboyn, close to easy day walks, picnic grounds and tranquil beaches. Further south, experienced hikers can take on the 60km Nadgee–Howe wilderness walk. At Nadgee you won’t be bothered at all by crowds, other than perhaps a pod of dolphins riding the waves.
