10. The Sutherland Shire (God's Country???)

  - 05 Sydney Metropolitan Region
This subregion is unlocked for editing, and its crags are unlocked. Crag additions are allowed.
Description:Known to the locals as simply The Shire, it offers up fantastic bouldering and some short quality cragging dotted along scenic rivers and in bushland below suburbia. Usually excellent quality sandstone rock, but limited in height. The most popular crags are probably Bangor and Blue Bell. Royal National Park has officially banned climbing. All other crags are located on council land with no access issues. Please be courteous to land owners who back onto the bush where these crags are.
Location:Sutherland Shire is located south of the Georges River about 20km south from Sydney CBD. Follow signs to Wollongong and you will drive straight through the heart of the Shire.
Useful Info:Take your passport and avoid during Australia Day celebrations.
