Highlights

Mystery Bay

Located on the far south coast of NSW, Eurobodalla National Park stretches from Moruya Head to Mystery Bay. Lookouts and headlands offer amazing coastal views, as well as being great vantage spots during the annual whale-watching season. You're also likely to see kangaroos and a range of birds around the park.

Whale at Montague Island

With vast tracts of hinterland, national parks and state forests, the Eurobodalla region offers many opportunities to see and encounter native animals in the wild. The region is also home to a world-class zoo and a native animal park.

The rugged forested terrain of the Deua National Park is a haven for birds, wallabies, kangaroos, possums and bandicoots and the rare tiger quoll is also found in the park. Owls are common at night as they hunt for small marsupials. In Monga National Park lyrebirds are often seen near the ancient plumwood trees of Penance Grove. Many of the old growth forests in the region are home to sooty and masked owls. In autumn the Banksia Walk at Burrewarra Point attracts a variety of nectar-eating birds. Kangaroos abound at South Durras and throughout Murramarang National Park including Pebbly Beach.
