Greenwell Point- A Coastal Fishing Village

So...Greenwell Point- have you been? This cute coastal fishing village can be found East of Nowra...if you turn left at the lights at Archer Resort in Nowra and travel along with road to the end you will find Greenwell Point.

Along the way be sure to check out Pyree which is home to the historic Jindyandy Mill a place where both past & present come together in beautiful surrounds. You can find a range of great shops here- stop for lunch, lollies or coffee and browse the on-site shops. The Mill Cafe is set overlooking the rolling green pastures and is perfect for lunch or dinner on a pretty day.

Further down the road you will come across the town of Greenwell Point, 15km east of Nowra. This was originally a shipping port for the Shoalhaven & is now famous for the oysters that local oyster farmers produce. Check our Jim Wild's oysters he is a world record holder 'oyster shucker' & a very friendly guy who will open your oysters while you wait.

There is also other seafood available at some of the takeaway outlets that you can take & eat by the waters edge. Other activities include fishing ( of course!) and you can hire a tinny for the day from Anglers Rest (you will find them across from the boat ramp).

Any visitor information that you want you can pick up from the Point Gallery & Craft Shop, they also have a history section along with exhibitions and workshops running from time to time- they are in the main street- look for the information sign and spider web made of twine hanging out the front!

A range of accommodation is available in town- including Coral Tree Lodge which are located near the Bowling Club (follow the signs), their accommodation has pretty views over the water & staff are always willing to assist.

Towns closeby for a day trip include Culburra, Currarong & Callala Bay/Beach along with Nowra & Jervis Bay further south.
