Pambula  New South Wales

Pambula (meaning 'two waters') is an historic village on New South Wales far South Coast. The township is spread across both sides of the Pambula River and is popular holiday destination. Many of its old buildings now house art and craft shops or restaurants.

Nearby Pambula Beach is a great spot for a picnic on the foreshore, followed by a swim on the patrolled beach. Kangaroos and wallabies may be seen feeding there in the early morning.

The area was first explored by Europeans in the late 1700s but not settled until 1830. It wasn't until 1851 that the residents realised they had settled on a flood plain when the Pambula River flooded, and over time the settlement moved to higher ground.

Gold was discovered in the area but the town's economy has continued to be based on dairying, maize and timber.

Pambula is a little over 5 hours from Sydney and about 6.5 hours from Melbourne

Things to do:

  • Historic Houses -walk around the town to see the Commercial Hotel, old National School, Court House (1860) and St Peter's Catholic church (1867). Also see 'The Retreat' (1850s) and 'The Forest Oak' (1857). Further out you'll find 'The Grange' (1851), 'Roan Horse Inn" (1850's) and 'Settlers Cottage'.
  • Cruise - cruises on the Pambula river and Lake Pambula with Sinbad Cruises
  • Swimming and water sports - at Pambula beach at the river mouth, noted for its surfing
  • Events - Sunday markets each second Sunday of the month

    In the area:

  • Bega Cheese Factory – Bega, 40 km north-west, has been manufacturing dairy products for more than 100 years. Take a tour around the factory.
  • Ben Boyd National Park 30 km south - with Aboriginal middens that are 2000 years old and Boydtown, an historic whaling station
