Invest in Shoalhaven

Shoalhaven is a wonderful place to live, work and play. Just two hours from Sydney and Canberra the region has a strong relationship with State and Federal Government to help grow and serve our 100,000 locals and 3 million annual visitors.

Made up of 49 towns and villages, Shoalhaven is one of the largest local government areas in NSW and includes commercial centres in Berry, Bomaderry, North Nowra, Nowra, Culburra Beach, Huskisson, Sanctuary Point, Sussex Inlet, Milton, Ulladulla, and South Nowra.
