Activities in Greenwell Point
Go for a paddle
If kayaking make sure you go with the tide, paddling against is often impossible, especially during king tides (Christmas and Easter).
There are some beautiful scenic loops that take advantage of the Comerong Island canals. If you’re interested, ask at reception.
Double and single kayaks are available for hire from us and you are also very welcome to bring your own kayak.
Hire a Tinnie
Catch some fish for dinner, find your own private beach, or do what we do and soak up some of nature’s natural wonders on the almost uninhabited Comerong Island – host of a fabulous nature reserve and the southern end of Seven Mile Beach.
No boating experience is necessary, we launch them for you at the public boat ramp across the road & provide everything needed to help make your outing fun and safe.
Be prepared to get wet and have some laughs.
Further details including exactly what is included and what you should bring are available at out Boat Hire page.
The BBQs & picnic areas across the road
Stainless steel BBQs and picnic areas provided by Shoalhaven Council.
Alternatively we can locate one of our BBQs near your cabin.
Fish off the shore, pontoons or jetties
From the front of the park and for about a kilometre along the foreshore Shoalhaven Council have built amazing, landscaped walkways and pontoons. Go fishing, or have a picnic.
The Park Across the Road
Sit back, watch the kids having fun, smile and enjoy.
The BBQs and picnic tables adjoin the children’s play park, so why not make a day / evening of it?
Take your (or our) boat out
Use the fabulous new boat ramp to access the Tasman Sea via the Crookhaven Bar safely, or just potter around in the more protected river systems.
The little beach down the road
Good for kids, picnics and lazing around – about 500m to the left of Angler’s Rest, after the mangroves.
Remember the tide can run very quickly so keep a close eye on swimmers.
Greenwell Point tennis court was built in 1977. It has been maintained fairly regularly by the community and council’s Management Committee. It is available for hourly hire day and night and the net is left up so you can just start playing!
