Due to the devastation caused by the state fires, Kingsgrove RSL Club decided to donate the use of our 8 Shoalhaven Heads Holiday Units, to help the people of the south coast community who had been affected by the tragic events which have forced them out of their family homes, and to support the volunteers involved in fighting the fires.
Our units were temporarily unavailable to Club members in January-February 2020 summer period. We thank you for your concern for our fellow Australians affected by the devastating fires and for your understanding at not being able to holiday in the Shoalhaven Heads units during that time.
We wish all those affected our heartfelt very best wishes in the recovery effort and rebuilding process. Now that the danger has passed, you can book your holiday in the Shoalhaven Heads units, and support the local community while down there.
