We visit here mostly for the snorkelling, but it is good to take a walk around, see the history, collect some shells and just appreciate what this area has to offer.

I used to be a local and when I'm down this way I always visit this place to unwind and relax. Love bushrangers bay and red sands. Visit during the week for a guaranteed parking spot.

Bass Point Reserve is one the most beautiful places on earth. Before you go to the reserve make sure you stop at Shellharbour Village and go to Village Fix Cafe. From My Game Guru Team.

A beautiful area to take the family for a picnic away from the tourist filled town of Shellharbour. Be prepared for a bumpy ride on the dirt road in saying that the kids love the ride & the bumps were all part of the fun

Hi. The many times I have been here, I have never seen any "no pets" signs at all. Plus there are pets everywhere. Lovely place.
