Bush Honeymoons

For newlyweds who simply wish to disappear into the landscape for a romantic and secluded honeymoon, the Shoalhaven is the perfect destination. On offer are luxury bed and breakfasts or private bush cottages with mountain views, running creeks and wildlife. Or your taste may run to a more rustic retreat set alongside the mighty Shoalhaven River, or a deluxe cabin near a white sand beach. If glam camping is more your thing, picture yourself in a safari-style tent among the gum trees not far from Jervis Bay.
