Went for a drive to Shute Harbour and found there are lots of panoramic views from the streets, overlooking the harbour and marina. A working harbour which is quite active. Well worth a look.

Nice walk up the Mountain from Shute harbour with a really Nice view. From the top there is a track back down again to the other side. This walk takes approximatively 2 hours

Worth the drive To Shute Harbour for your eyes to drink in the amazing changing colours of these waters .. The sun n wind kisses you skin and breathe in deep the scent of the ocean n the boats ... Hmm if you love boats or are on one .. Don't miss Shute Harbour

We reserved a water taxi to go to Long Island. Since we were going for two days, we were not sure about the parking situation. Once you are there, you can charge your parking ($24 AUS per day.

This is more than just a turn-around at the end of the road. It has a busy little harbour and the petrol station has very low prices and friendly service

It is what you would expect. Its a harbour! Don't be late! Allow plenty of time to get onto your boat if travelling with a cruise line. Make sure you think about parking and if you will need to walk from the long term parking ect. Not the best place to just rock up to and wing it.

Sailing in to Shute harbour is a hard experience to match. Gorgeous vistas, beaches, sandbars, and gin clear waters. Fishing here is an angler's nirvana.

This used to be where the boats left from but now it is deserted. Nothing there except the view. We did find a bush walk to swamp bay - 4km round trip and this was quite nice and provided access to swamp bay at shute harbour. - worth the look
