Currarong

Currarong is a small coastal fishing and tourist village in the Shoalhaven area of New South Wales, Australia. At the 2011 census, Currarong had a population of 452. The village is a haven for fishermen, with several underwater rises where fish are abundant. Currarong has a small general store, a newsagent and a cafe. As of early 2013 there is a fish cafe called Zac's Place, a general store, a licensed club, a caravan park, and several properties available for holiday rental.BeachesCurrarong is surrounded by 14 white sand beaches, many of them deserted even in summer. Most notable are Warrain Beach and sheltered Abrahams Bosom beach. Currarong is also famous for its rock pool, and for the many protected beaches a few minutes drive away on the other side of the headland in Jervis Bay, including Long Beach, Cabbage Tree Beach and the perfectly horse-shoe shaped Honeymoon Bay.Fishing and divingCurrarong has world class fishing - rock, beach and ocean. A spot down the cliff from Point Perpendicular is one of the few land based locations in Australia where Yellow Fin Tuna and Marlin can be caught. In 2011 a new boat ramp was completed that allows for launching two boats at a time. The area is also renowned for its scuba diving and snorkelling.SightsThe wreck of the SS Merimbula is about 15 minutes walk. The freighter, belonging to the Illawarra Steam Navigation Company was wrecked on the Beecroft Headland in 1928. All passengers and crew were rescued. The historic Point Perpendicular lighthouse is a 10-minute drive.Currarong is one of the few places in NSW where you can sit on a North West facing beach looking at mountains across the water, and watch the sun set over the ocean.
