Hidden in the dense bush behind North Nowra, Bomaderry creek is the 'lost world' of Nowra climbing. This area is actually a collection of small crags scattered along the gorge of the creek. Some of the crags are completely worthless, but some are genuinely impressive and feature some great climbing. Access is often quick and easy. Please park with care in these residential areas.


For 'South Central' and 'Cheesedale', park at the end of Jamieson Road. For 'Lot 33', 'Lot 34', 'Mortein Wall' and 'Rosies', park on Walsh Crescent.

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.
