The Shoalhaven Heads Pump Track, located opposite Bangalay, offers family-friendly recreation of the wheeled variety.

A trip to Shoalhaven Heads wouldn’t be complete without a ride up Coolangatta Mountain on the huge yellow custom-built tractor called Bigfoot! Hold on and take in the view as you steadily make your way to 1000ft elevation on the summit of Coolangatta Mountain. Enjoy the incredible view of the coastline before travelling back down and through the historic village of Coolangatta Estate. Be sure to make time to visit the cellar door after your adventure and enjoy a delicious meal at the Estate’s restaurant, Alexander’s Grill.
There is nothing more thrilling than seeing these beautiful creatures up close and swimming alongside the boat as you watch on. The Bay is home to lots of pods of bottlenose dolphins, who love the calm waters of the Bay, raising their little ones and playing host to the migrating whales on their way up and down the coast during migration.
Shoalhaven Zoo boasts an extensive collection of native and exotic animals, set in amongst the most spectacular natural rock formations and bushland, all on the banks of the beautiful Shoalhaven River.
