Yalwal is an old gold prospecting area located 30 kilometres south-west of Nowra. It has two camping and picnic areas. The water, however, is not suitable for drinking. Yalwal is ideal for relaxing in an unspoilt wilderness with abundant wildlife, or as a base for active pursuits such as bushwalking, canoeing, swimming and cycling. An historic cemetery and the remnants of some old gold mines can be found there.
