Bomaderry, NSW

Bomaderry is situated on the northern side of the Shoalhaven River, 4 km from Nowra and takes its name from the Aboriginal meaning “fighting ground” or “running water”. The township dates back to the late 1800’s when it was laid out by David Berry.

Good infrastructure of local businesses sees this as a thriving township and it is the terminus of the south coast railway line with feeder bus services conveying passengers to other towns within the Shoalhaven Area and down the coast as far as Eden.

Bomaderry Aquatic Centre, Shoalhaven City Lanes, and the indoor basketball stadium are popular venues offering family recreation and relaxation.

Close by is North Nowra which follows the scenic Shoalhaven River from the Nowra Bridge along its banks. There are lovely well graded bushwalks here including The Grotto Walk, which overlooks the Nowra Golf Course and descends the escarpment to the riverbank below and Bomaderry Creek Walk which follows the line of the creek and offers either a short or long course.

There are 4 motels in Bomaderry plus a caravan park with cabin accomodation as well as powered sites.

Nearest Airport: Kingford Smith Mascot (148kms)
