The list also includes two man-made gems – an historic railway line bushtrack and a lighthouse with a view that will take your breath away.

Just a day trip from the Gong, it’s time to explore our neighbours’ stunning beaches and bushland.

A word of caution: Old versions of Google Maps show the wrong location for the Drawing Room Rocks walk - if you are using Google Maps update your app for up to date information, also car parking is very limited. 

This is a dangerous walk with a steep incline, featuring unfenced open cliff faces, and is not maintained or recommended by National Parks or Shoalhaven City Council.
