Towing a boat from Bowral to Greenwell Pt

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just seeing if anyone would recommend towing a boat from Bowral down Moss vale road to Greenwell Point / Jervis Bay Area? I’ve got a 6m centre console pioneer towed behind a V6 amerok. 

Thanks 👍

Haven't driven it for a while but I know the road.

Pretty steep some very sharp corners in places.

I've never towed anything on it but it could be one of those places a cabin brake controller would be very handy or essential.

The road isn't too bad these days. Although there's a few hairpin corners, they've been widened out to make it easier for the semi trailers and caravans to get around. If they can get up and down the mountain, I don't see why you can't.

If in doubt, take the Amerok for a run one day minus the boat and see how you feel about it.

Be fine, as long as you take it easy down "the pass"

Thanks for the advice guys. The missus wants to move from Sydney to Bowral so I’m just making sure I can still fish before committing.

Just to add, why do you want to use Greenwell Point? there is lots of ramps closer, Port Kembla, Shellharbour, Kiama, all much closer than Greenwell Point, even Shoalhaven Heads, then a quick run down the river to Greenwell Point, not saying there is anything wrong with the location, just a simple "why"

You'll do it pretty easy with a boat that size. We done it for years with far lesser vehicles before the Nerriga Rd was done up.

Including one interesting trip with a seafarer viking behind a Sigma with my grandmother behind the wheel 😅

It just seems quicker to get out to the banks from Greenwell point. It’s around 25-30 NM from Shellharbour vs 7 NM from Greenwell. I’ll definitely be fishing out of Kiama and Shellharbour at some stage though. I’ve heard they’re pretty good too.
