Sport & Adventure

Diving is an international drawcard, with the dives off South West Rocks some of the finest in the world. Known as “the divers dive” the famous dive off Fish Rock features one of the only dive-through caves in Australia. It’s home to an abundance of both temperate and subtropical marine life including turtles, rays, eels, and fish, as well as being a breeding ground for the rare Grey Nurse Shark. Two dive centres operate year round.

For land lubbers there’s mountain biking and bush walking trails through the National Parks, and some spectacularly located golf courses to play. But of course, much of Macleay Valley life is focused on the water, and boating, kayaking and paddle boarding opportunities abound in our river, streams, estuaries and beaches.
