About 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.
