On the Princes Highway from Sydney, Nowra and Bomaderry have developed into an important junction on the Shoalhaven River. Acting as the administrative and commercial centre for Shoalhaven City, it has thrived with the growth of the timber and dairy industries in the region.
For a fascinating view of life of the settlers can be experienced by visiting Meroogal, run by the Historical Houses Trust of NSW. A family of women lived here for four generations.
The house is known for its architecture and gardens, but the women that lived here have left their mark. Exploring the layers of time from the domestic duties they performed, to the pursuit of their many and varied interests through the years by the successive generations, the house is well worthy of a visit.
