There’s so many wonderful “experiences” in the Shoalhaven, it was hard to shortlist just three in this category, but here they are! 
Experiencing the beauty of Historic Point Perpendicular Lighthouse nominated by Dannie; The community activity of St Georges Basin Football Club, and the ritual of a daily dip at Bogey Hole in Mollymook nominated by Jacqueline.
With so many amazing adventures to experience in the Shoalhaven, it was very difficult to find a winner in this category. Kangaroo River was nominated by Alex Middleton. Murrays Beach was nominated by Rohanna Holland and our fantastic Shoalhaven waterways were nominated by Bayside Aerial Images
We all love the Shoalhaven, so picking the finalists for the “Place” category was particularly tricky! But check out these great entries and if you haven’t been, put a visit on your to do list soon.
