Discover Autumn on the South Coast ...
Autumn is a special time for the region. It’s festival time - there’s an abundance of Easter events, art shows, live music, parades, performances and more happening all up and down the coast. From
sculptures in the sand at Thirroul Seaside Festival to the cheese rolling at Tilba Easter Festival, there’s so much to experience. Ulladulla’s famous Blessing of the Fleet presents a day of rich Italian tradition. Visitors and locals will be able to soak up the natural beauty of the South Coast at Eurobodalla’s River of Art celebrations. As the weather starts to cool down, it’s a great time to head indoors and appreciated the wealth of talented artists on the coast. The Wollongong Art Gallery, Articles Fine Arts, and Shoalhaven City Arts Centre and Millhouse in Ulladulla have a number of exhibitions running during Autumn. See Change Arts Festival at Jervis Bay gets underway with a myriad of activities and exhibitions. During the holidays there's kids activities and workshops, circus, shows, wineries, theatres, cruises, markets and more! Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have a great time enjoying this piece of paradise!
