Merimbula, New South Wales Holidays

Merimbula is a coastal town in southern New South Wales, Australia. Its beaches include Merimbula Main Beach, with surf breaks over a sandbank, and Short Point, a popular whale-watching spot. Merimbula Boardwalk hugs the shores of Merimbula Lake. Northwest of the centre, Potoroo Palace is a wildlife sanctuary with wombats, echidnas and kangaroos. To the northeast, Bournda National Park has coastal trails.

Merimbula Holidays

Merimbula – derived from the Aboriginal word for ‘two lakes’ – is known as the ‘Heart of the Sapphire Coast’ and today a mecca for tourists far and wide. The attraction is its lakes and beaches that provide for all types of water activities, whether the visitor is experienced or a novice. There’s also plenty on offer, just a short drive from of town. Visit a winery or an oyster farm, one of the neighbouring national parks, or tour amongst the hinterland, rolling hills and small country towns nearby – where you can learn more about the early pioneers in this district.

Close by are national parks offering a range of possibilities or special events that draw you to the area – the annual jazz festival, orchid shows, fishing competitions or the Merimbula Malibu or Classic wavesailing, kitesurfing and SUPs (stand up paddle) local festivals. And, of course, there is wonderful seafood. Don’t miss out on locally grown oysters, mussels, crayfish and prawns – they’re good for body and soul! Too much indulgence on holidays? A gentle swim or walk along one of Merimbula’s many beaches, or a stroll along the boardwalk should help keep everything in balance. The Merimbula Boardwalk skirts the northern shores of the Top Lake section of Merimbula Lake and is a 3.5km round trip, broken by a coffee or icecream at the café in the middle!
