Shoalhaven — South Coast

Back to the Good Grub Guide

Old Store at Barrengarry – Kangaroo Valley    
With a sign outside that declares “Worlds Best Pies”, it’s pretty hard to drive past. The pies are pretty amazing, and well worth stopping for if you’re driving through. The shop is part cafe, part post office, part general store, and has a huge selection of local gourmet products to tempt you with, so expect to come back out with a lighter wallet. Open 8.30am to 5.30pm.

Oaks Hotel  – Albion Park Rail    
Open till 9 on a Sunday this is our pick of the pubs heading home from the Budawangs. Roasts will set you back $10, or $12 with desert. The seafood is of a very high quality, whilst the steak sandwiches were made with some damn juicy steak!

Nowra Fresh Fish & Chips – Nowra    
Very fresh fish, because they’re close to the Co-op, and you can sit down to eat for a price that’s cheaper than a lot of Sydney takeaway joints. They come highly recommended by the Catholic Bushwalkers.

Make a submission to the Good Grub Guide:

This guide is based on the first-hand experiences we’ve had, along with feedback from other bushwalkers, canyoners and outdoor enthusiasts. The more people that provide suggestions, feedback, and personal experiences, the more useful the guide will be for all of us.

When making a submission, think about the factors that make a place particularly convenient following a trip. Is it open reasonably early or late? Is it located close to places you’re likely to drive through? Are the staff friendly and welcoming, particularly when it involves dirty, stinky, outdoors-people? And perhaps most importantly, does it have good food at affordable prices?
