Shoalhaven City Council is undertaking works in stages between October 2020 and March 2021 to prepare for the prestigious L’Étape Cycling event. 

The L’Étape Cycling event will be held on 19-22 March 2021 with part of the route crossing through the Shoalhaven region. The 2020 L’Étape event was postponed due to COVID-19. Access more information about the L’Étape event via our Get Involved website.

Tree Management and Road Works to improve road safety and ride quality along the route within the municipality will occur on Cambewarra Lookout Rd - Cambewarra Mountain, Tourist Rd - Beaumont and Bellawongarah and Kangaroo Valley Rd - Berry Mountain.
