History

The Shoalhaven region in New South Wales is the southern part of the traditional homelands of the Tharawal people.[5]

George Bass explored the area in 1797, following Seven Mile Beach. He crossed the shoals at the entrance to the river, calling it 'Shoals Haven' due to the shallowness of the river mouth. This river is now known as the Crookhaven,[6] but the name was adopted for the Shoalhaven area and the Shoalhaven River.
