Batemans Bay is a happy mix of a seaside village and cosmopolitan town. Batemans Bay has an easy and relaxed charm that reminds us life is to be enjoyed. Surrounded by forests and waterways, the town unfolds along the banks of the Clyde River, forming a gateway to the Eurobodalla region beyond. Few places offer as many unspoilt landscapes so close to a town centre.
The Clyde is one of the cleanest estuaries on Australia’s east coast. A short walk from the town’s cafe strip and across the bridge will have you on its sandy northern beaches – ideal for swimming, fishing or picnicking. National parks and marine sanctuaries, secluded headlands and rock pools, sandy creeks and riverbanks, and bay and ocean beaches are all within minutes of the town centre. To the north of the town, the beaches at Surfside, Long Beach and Maloneys Beach offer protected waters ideal for families, relaxed walks, and picnics with local Eastern Grey Kangaroo’s. Cullendulla Creek, a hidden marine sanctuary flanked by a raised mangrove boardwalk, is particularly striking – with crystal clear swimming and expansive sand flats to lose yourself in.
Mogo isn’t too far from Bateman’s Bay and has a charm that is hard to define. The former gold rush village has developed that certain something – an authentic but quirky mix of history, art, food, shopping and outdoor adventure. Lots of great little shops from antiques to lolly shops, homewares and books.
