Eurobodalla has a rich heritage that has shaped the region’s down to earth, relaxed lifestyle. Our local history lives on through the stories, artefacts and architecture of our towns and villages, much of it preserved and protected by our museums and historical societies.

Located just ten minutes south from Batemans Bay, Mogo is a charming village established after the gold rush in the 1850s. Prosperity attracted many to the area along with a thriving town of hotels, churches and a healthy regard for the natural surrounds. The Original Gold Rush Colony in Mogo is a multi award-winning tourism attraction, that brings to life the history of the area.

Moruya is the heart and soul of country Eurobodalla. Situated on the banks of the beautiful Moruya River, lies a town with a laid back way of living far removed from the fast pace of the city hustle. Historic Quarry Park on the river’s edge tells the story of how Moruya provided stone for many of Sydney’s landmarks, including the pylons of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The tales of quarrying and loading granite onto barges for the sometimes perilous ocean journey are largely unknown, and are why Moruya is affectionately called Granite Town by many locals.

Narooma comes from the Aboriginal ‘clear, blue water’ which is exactly what you’ll discover here, and so much more.

The lush green countryside and timber barns surrounding this 150-year-old working village tell you you’re in prime dairy country. Australia’s first commercial cheese was made here, and the tradition is very much alive.

The village of Central Tilba is as beautiful as it is unique. Classified under the National Trust, and named as one of Australia’s best heritage sights, the town offers a living snapshot of 19th century Australia.
