With terrific swimming, surfing and fishing, you'll discover your own beachside heaven at Culburra. Culburra Beach, about 22 kilometres south east of Nowra, is the town's main attraction with its long sandy stretches. Other attractions nearby include Lake Wollumboola, a coastal lake that intermittently opens to the ocean and is a haven for thousands of migratory and local birds and endangered species such as the green and golden bell frog. The lake has special cultural significance for the Jerrinja people and a picnic area is provided with signs interpreting the importance of the lake. When water levels are high, it's used for sailing, wind surfing and water skiing. At Crookhaven Heads, follow a walking trail to see the historic Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse. Boating, rock fishing and deep-sea charters for marlin and tuna fishing are popular here.
