The Best Luxury Accommodation on the South Coast NSW

Dreaming of a cruisey seaside sojourn? This edit of luxury South Coast accommodation in NSW is for you.

Bannisters by the Sea

There’s something special about the South Coast. Stretching from Sydney’s southern edge to the Victorian border. It’s flush with national parks, rugged rainforests, romantic dates ideas, charming fishing towns, walking tracks, and some of the most idyllic, white-sand beaches in the country. With Kiama recently being voted the best town in Australia, there's never been a better time to hit the road and explore this picturesque region.

Now all that's left is to settle on your accommodation. If you're channelling luxury, these are our top picks...


If you’re part of a group looking for luxury accommodation on the South Coast you’ll do well to consider Greyleigh. Nestled on a working farm, Greyleigh offers a guesthouse, catering to six guests, and a homestead, catering for up to 12. Whichever you choose, you can expect the most luxurious fit out imaginable with both accommodation options full of vintage and antique treasures. Guests have the opportunity to collect freshly laid eggs from the farm's chickens, pick fresh produce from the gardens and interact with the property's resident animals. When you’re done, pop to the lovely town of Kiama to explore.
