Eurobodalla is a driver’s paradise. Let the road take you past rugged coastlines, ancient forests, through hidden valleys and up to lookouts with spectacular views from the mountains to the sea.

Sitting up high on the ridge line, Holmes lookout offers spectacular scenic views looking out over mighty Clyde River as it winds its way towards the sparkling blue of the Pacific Ocean.

You’ll see Batemans Bay to the southeast and glimpses of the beautiful Budawang Ranges to the northwest. Breathe deeply and take in the fresh air and smells of the Aussie bush.

Other lookouts to explore include:

Observation Point, Batehaven
Boasts fabulous views overlooking the beach and out to the beautiful Snapper Island. Heading south from Batemans Bay, take Beach Road to Batehaven. Continue past the shopping centre, taking the first left turn to Observation Avenue at the top of the hill. Pause for a bite to eat or just take in the view at this popular lookout point.

Big Bit Lookout, Batemans Bay
Take the Princes Highway north from Batemans Bay approx 14 km and turn left onto Big Bit Road. The unsealed road is in good condition. After 4 km you will reach the lookout with 360° views of the surrounding area including Durras Lake. Continue along this road back to the highway but as the going is quite steep you may prefer to head back the way you came.

South Head, Malua Bay
South Head is a secluded headland with two small clearings, one to the north and one to the south. Both can be accessed via a short walk along paths at the end of Tallawang Avenue, Malua Bay. From Batemans Bay drive south along George Bass Drive (the Coast Road) and turn left into Tallawang Avenue. Limited street parking. Whales can be sighted as close as 150 metres from the lookout.

Burrewarra Point, Guerilla Bay
Breathtaking views up and down the coast make the most of potential whale sightings. Drive 18ks south along the coast road from Batemans Bay to the turn off to Guerilla Bay. Turn left into Burri Point Road. The track to the beacon and lookout is signposted.

South Broulee
Don’t miss this view at sunset as the breakers roll in and the last of the sun hits the mountains. Glorious. Park at Broulee Surf Club and stroll or drive up the hill with your fish and chips and a sneaky bottle of wine.

Toragy Point, Moruya Heads
The old graveyard on the headland offers beautiful views up and down the coast, and a glimpse into the past. Shelly Beach, below the lookout, is a lovely spot for a BBQ or picnic and a swim. Turn off the Princes Highway just south of Moruya onto South Head Road, and it’s a ten minute drive to the headland.

One Tree Point, Tuross Head
Beautiful ocean views from the headland, with a picnic area, BBQ and cycle path. Whale watching in season. At Tuross Head follow Hector McWilliam Drive, turn into Hawkins Road and follow to the end.

Carters Beach headland, Kianga
Carters Headland at the northern end of Bar Beach is a favoured dolphin surf beach offering 180° views as far north as Pigeon House Mountain on a clear day. Whale calves frolic out past the rocks. The waters around Narooma are relatively shallow and are rich in krill (whale food!). When travelling south, turn left into Dalmeny about 5 km north of Narooma and follow this around to the beach.

Broulee Island, Broulee
Broulee Island is joined to the mainland by a sandbar so it’s always accessible and takes about an hour to walk around. Parking, toilets and café at Broulee Surf Club, South Broulee. Eyes up for the superb fairy wrens and white bellied sea eagles, and down for the famous pink rocks that give the nearby surf break its name.

Bar Rock, Narooma
Spectacular views of Wagonga Inlet and Montague Island and all the beautiful blue in between. In Narooma take Bluewater Drive then Bar Rock Road. There’s also stairs down to Australia Rock.

Narooma Golf Club, Narooma
Excellent views from the top end of the club’s car park, but better yet head inside the clubhouse for a great meal and uninterrupted views to Montague Island and Glasshouse Rocks. The club is located at the top of Bluewater Drive, turn left off the Princes Highway when travelling south through Narooma.
