Some plans would be to order up some prawns and oysters from Jim Wild for pick up on the 24th. Or get some supplies from the butcher and IGA on the 24th. We have a shared BBQ on site, and there are free electric BBQ’s in the park opposite.
Now for the openers, and bookings are required:-

Anchor Bay Motel
I have stayed at the Anchor Bay twice now, it is convenient and away from suburbia of Nowra and is right on the water at Greenwell Point. The rooms are always tidy, smelling fresh with very clean linen and blankets (I liked the low setting on the electric blanket - just enough for my aching back) and the coffee tea facilities well appointed. It is a must to walk along the walkway from the jetty to the end and back before breakfast. The fresh sea breeze and brisk walk does you the world of good. The manager is always polite, courteous and ever helpful with our needs. The jetty and boat ramp are great for pictures and looking back on Coolongata Mountain at Shoalhaven. The free picnic BBQ and tables are an added bonus across the road with a great Fish & Chip shop on the corner. We will be back again, for sure.5 / 5 stars
What a lovely place Greenwell Point is! Very peaceful with stunning views over the water within seconds of this accomodation. (Nice view from room also) The host could not have been more pleasant or helpful, and was willing to do anything to ensure we had a good stay. The choice of eateries in winter seem limited so we knocked something up in our room, using the adequate kitchenete facilities. Very comfortable room and a very enjoyable stay.5 / 5 stars
On a three week holiday through NSW, the Anchor Bay Motel was the best value accommodation encountered in this price range on the whole trip. I stayed 3 nights. The room was bright, clean, and fresh, with natural light from two directions, and had an inviting verandah to sit outside.5 / 5 stars
We had a quick overnight stay here while attending a wedding. The hosts are very welcoming and happy to recommend places to eat etc. the room was very clean and had a lively view of the wharf where the fishing boats come in. It was also very quiet. Be aware that some of the rooms are only accessed via stairs so if this is a problem for you make sure to ask for a downstairs room. All in all a lovely stay and I would definitely return.5 / 5 stars
Friendly and welcoming with beautiful river views. Great affordable rate and lovely big stylish comfortable rooms (the bed was amazing! ) Great experience here. Cafes pools and shops only a short stroll away and beautiful country driving around the area. I highly recommend :) Will definitely be back. Most pleasant stay i have had in a long time! Very accommodating...5 / 5 stars
