Sanctuary Point

Location and access

Sanctuary Point is located on St Georges Basin - a large inland body of water that flows to the ocean at Sussex Inlet. The area is generally suburban in nature but has a lovely foreshore, especially at Palm Beach.

The road access to the area is via Nowra and then Jervis Bay Road - along the same route that takes you to Hyams Beach and Booderee National Park.  The distance from Nowra to Sanctuary Point is about 30 kms.

Key features and attractions

Sanctuary Point / St Georges Basin is great for families with kids as the waters are generally always safe and shallow, and the coastline is dotted with pretty beaches, rocky outcrops and many areas of natural bushland.


Palm Beach is the most attractive of the beaches and has a foreshore area that is accessible by car.
