About Merimbula

The town's main assets are water sports of all types, including fishing, swimming, boating, lake cruises, scuba diving, sailboarding and canoeing. The 6km Main Beach is ideal for surfing, while Short Point and Tura Beach are backed by tea-trees and banksia trees set among coastal heaths.

The surrounding hinterland has superb bushwalks with marked trails. The natural forests burst into bloom in spring with abundant native flora. Bournda National Park, which brackets Merimbula Lake, is a haven for birds and for the kangaroos and wallabies that graze on its shores. Nearby, Tathra and Eden are well worth a visit.

Merimbula has accommodation options to suit your needs including self contained accommodation, cabins, bed & breakfasts and caravan & camping.
