From delicious cheese to colonial heritage, Bodalla is a delightful village in the beautiful Eurobodalla region on the NSW South Coast. Dairy farming and cheese making in Bodalla date back to the 1860s. Today, you can visit the famous Bodalla Dairy Cheese Factory, which exports cheeses to the world.
The kids will love the farmyard where they can pat cute animals and bottle-feed calves at 10am and 4pm daily. The young and young at heart will enjoy old-fashioned milkshakes at the Bodalla Dairy Shed, part of the cheese factory. You can buy a range of cheeses and even stay in the guest suites.
Another landmark is All Saints Church, designed by colonial architect Edmund Blacket. His best known works are the University of Sydney and St Andrew’s Cathedral, Sydney. You’ll discover gold rush heritage a short drive west on the Old Nerrigundah Settlement Trail and at Comans Mine.
To the east is the spectacular Eurobodalla National Park, where you can stay beachside at the Beachcomber Holiday Park. The national park stretches from Moruya Heads in the north to Mystery Bay in the south. One of the many things to do is relax on the beautiful beaches in the region.
Bodalla is near the charming towns of Moruya, Tuross Head and Narooma, where tours depart for the seals and penguins of Montague Island. The drive from Sydney is 4h 30min and from Canberra 2h 40min. You can fly from Sydney to Moruya Airport and rent a car for the short drive to Bodalla.
