In the charming village of Bodalla, you can discover colonial heritage, taste delicious produce and explore the famous Bodalla Dairy Cheese Factory. Found in the beautiful Eurobodalla region on the NSW South Coast, Bodalla is known for its dairy farming and cheese production, which dates back to the 1860s.
A visit to Bodalla Dairy is fun for all ages. See the dairy production process in action, enjoy old-fashioned milkshakes at the Bodalla Dairy Shed and visit the animal farmyard, where kids can bottle feed calves at 10am and 4pm daily. You can also buy a range of cheeses and even spend the night.
Another Bodalla landmark is the Gothic-style All Saints Church designed by colonial architect Edmund Blacket, whose best known works are the University of Sydney and St Andrew’s Cathedral. A short drive west, you’ll find gold rush heritage on the Old Nerrigundah Settlement Trail and at Coman’s Mine.
A 10-minute drive east is the spectacular Eurobodalla National Park, which stretches from Moruya Heads in the north to Mystery Bay in the south. A big drawcard for this region is its beautiful beaches. Spend the day swimming, surfing or relaxing on white sands. You can also take a day trip to nearby Montague Island.
Bodalla is halfway between the towns of Moruya and Narooma. The drive from Sydney is 4h 30min and from Canberra 2h 40min. You can also fly from Sydney to Moruya Airport and rent a car for the short drive to Bodalla. Accommodation options include a holiday park in the national park and refurbished suites in the historic dairy.
