Tuross Head

On a spectacular headland between two beautiful tidal lakes, Tuross Head is a seaside gem in the Eurobodalla region. You’ll find plenty of wonderful things to do and see in this haven for kayaking, boating, fishing, cycling and swimming. Relax on gorgeous ocean beaches and there are great surfing spots, too.

Both Tuross Lake to the south and Coila Lake to the north offer exceptional fishing and boating. A popular recreational activity is kayaking on Tuross Lake, which connects to the Tuross River. You can hire kayaks near the Tuross Boatshed and Cafe on Trafalgar Road, where there are more delightful waterfront cafes.

Tuross Lake, South Coast

Another delightful way to experience the beauty of the lakes and the ocean is cycling on the Tuross Head Foreshore Ride, a shared off-road pathway. Stop at One Tree Point lookout and spot dolphins and migrating whales. At Plantation Point are the Memorial Gardens. Golfers will enjoy scenic views on the course at Tuross Head Country Club.

Places to stay include holiday cottages, a motel and waterside holiday and tourist parks. Halfway between Moruya and Narooma, getting to Tuross Head is easy. The drive from Sydney along the magnificent NSW South Coast is 4h 30 min and from Canberra is 2h 30 min. You can also fly to Moruya Airport.

Just 20 minutes’ drive south of Tuross Head, via the dairy farming village of Bodalla, is the Eurobodalla National Park and Potato Point, where experienced snorkellers explore waters teeming with marine life. Nearby is Lake Brou, where you can enjoy camping, bushwalking, fishing, waterskiing and kayaking.
