One of New South Wales’ most loved holiday destinations; it’s known for its quaint seaside charm, rugged local beaches, tranquil coastal lakes, a huge variety of water sports, whale watching and oyster farming. Tell us, what could be better than that? With so much variety in such a small town, it’s no wonder locals and tourists alike flock here to bask in the town’s relaxed atmosphere.
Merimbula is situated on the outskirts of Merimbula Lake, a picturesque tidal lake. Bursting with charm, the Merimbula Lake is surrounded by glittering beaches, walking trails, boardwalks and quaint cafes. Famous oysters also call this lake home, along with boats and colourful marine life.
