Your Environment

Shoalhaven has an exceptionally rich natural environment. It marks the southern most extent for a range of species who exist further north and marks the start of the home range for others heading south. This cross-over results in a very rich and diverse ecosystem because the number of different vegetation types provides a range of habitat suitable for many and varied species. This attracts tourists from all over the world.
