Nature and Wildlife

From kangaroos and koalas to little penguins and fur seals, you’ll be delighted with the animal encounters and diverse beauty of the Eurobodalla region. Explore walking trails in spectacular wilderness and marine life in Batemans Marine Park, which includes Montague Island.

This wonderful area of the NSW South Coast offers a great many things to do and see, from whale watching at North Head lookout, near Batemans Bay, to bushwalking, camping, fishing and surfing in Eurobodalla National Park, which stretches from Moruya Heads to Mystery Bay and 1080 Beach.

Join adventure tours of marvellous attractions. You can hire a bicycle too and pedal along scenic routes, such as the Batemans Bay Cycleway, Broulee’s North Head to Mossy Point Cycleway, the Moruya Cycleway, the Tuross Head Foreshore Ride and the 21km Narooma to Dalmeny route.

Kayaking and fishing are popular in the enchanting Clyde River National Park. The estuary of the Clyde River is part of Australia’s Oyster Coast and flows into Batemans Bay. On the southern side of the bay you can cuddle baby wombats, pat koalas and hand-feed kangaroos at Birdland Animal Park.

Endangered exotic animals are bred at nearby Mogo Zoo. A short drive south is Broulee, a littoral rainforest on the 4km Broulee Island Walk, and riverside Moruya. The Moruya Kayaking Trail is a great way to experience the meandering Moruya River. Kayaking is popular too in Deua National Park, just west of Moruya.

On the coast south of Moruya Heads is Tuross Head, where two lakes offer exceptional fishing and boating. Narooma is home to the Glasshouse Rocks and Pillow Lava, ancient rock formations. For breathtaking views of the coast, walk from the Tilba foothills to Mount Gulaga, an extinct volcano in Gulaga National Park.
