A charming seaside town at the mouth of the beautiful Macleay River, South West Rocks is a perfect escape for a family beach holiday and thrilling diving adventures. You’ll enjoy bushwalking and uncrowded beaches in Arakoon National Park and Hat Head National Park.
On the mid North Coast of NSW, South West Rocks has a rich heritage. The historic ruins of Trail Bay Gaol are on the cliffs above the sea. Taking 13 years to build, it opened in 1886 and was an internment camp in the First World War for people of German descent living in Australia. Near the gaol is Little Bay Beach, a great spot for fishing.
