By public transport

We are located in the town of Nowra, about 160km south of Sydney. Please enter from Worrigee Street, opposite the showground

Train and bus

The closest train station is Bomaderry. From Sydney’s Central station, the trip takes about 3 hours and requires a change at Kiama. This service is limited on weekends.

From Bomaderry, Meroogal is about 4km. You can get a bus from the station to Stewart Place shopping area, and from there Meroogal is a gentle uphill walk of about 1km. On weekends, the bus service is quite irregular, so a 10-minute taxi ride is a fast and convenient alternative.

For up-to-date timetables or to find the quickest public transport routes visit the Transport Infoline  or call 131500

By road

From the Princes Highway turn into Worrigee Street and drive up the hill; the house is at the corner of West Street. There is plenty of street parking.


From Bomaderry train station, Meroogal is a pleasant and mostly flat ride. We don’t have bike racks but there is plenty of secure bike parking.
