South Coast NSW things to do

Sweet and Espresso

Did someone say donuts?  Kiama and Shoalhaven Heads have been lucky towns indeed to have the added joy of donut outlets for all to enjoy.  Both offer over the top deliciousness!

  1. Espresso Boy Doughnuts offer authentic sourdough doughnuts and coffee at the kiosk by the beach in Shoalhaven Heads. If you are staying at Bangalay Villas, The cute retro shack the Soulhaven or closeby in Berry or Gerroa you need to add this to your morning activity.  The ‘Heads’ offer a great bike park, newly upgraded, wonderful walks for the bird lover – yes theres a bird that travels from Alaska to Shoalhaven Heads annually so the community has designed a landing strip for it. Or, enjoy the botanic gardens, add a picnic rug and you are set!
  2. Moist n Glazed is a new donut shop in Kiama that screams fun and joy!  The owners have created an experience that makes all ages smile and with selfie opportunities its a great way to create memories of your south coast stay.  Enjoy the large selection of donuts, milkshakes and coffee made where possible from south coast ingredients!

3. The Kalm Store in Gerringong offers a carefully curated collection of clothing, homewares and accessories for the style and eco conscious family with a love for travel and style, and the freedom of both.  Next door you can grab a coffee at Clay, a family business that highlights artwork and clay pieces designed and created by local artist, Brigita Hammell.

4. For a store that offers direct access to the south coast artisan its a must to pop into Co.LAB A Collective, in the town of Berry.  With over 30 creative businesses showcasing their offerings its a great way to explore handcrafted artisan wares from the south coast.
