Batemans Bay  New South Wales

    •   Show me: a map of Batemans Bay

The modern seaside resort of Batemans Bay commands peerless views to both the hinterland mountains and across the ocean to islands dotting the horizon. With its headwaters located in the pristine high country behind the NSW South Coast, the nearby Clyde River is acknowledged as the purest river in Australia and its flow is integral to a flourishing oyster industry.

The lure of succulent oysters and crayfish apart, Batemans Bay is a prized destination of both fisherfolk and holiday-makers drawn by the combination of river cruises, great golf courses, bush walks, superb beaches to the north and south of the town and a vigorous club and restaurant scene.

The Batemans Bay area boasts about a dozen clean beaches, a number of which offer some of the most testing surf on the east coast of Australia, while others with gentle shallow waters are ideal for young children. Children will also be enthralled by the tigers, lions, jaguars, snow leopards, bears and the cute meerkats which have earned the Mogo Zoo an international reputation.

To the south is Tomakin, set on a prime location on the coast between Batemans Bay and Moruya. The views along this stretch of coastline are magnificent, the beaches pristine, the fishing a religion and the weather mutable. There are scenic approaches from both south and north along a winding road that hugs the coastline and provides some great views.

Pack your fishing gear to handle beach, river, estuary and the big stuff out to sea, because there’s plenty of action off this coastline. This is the centre for some of the best deep sea and big game fishing to be had outside Far North Queensland, and local catches have produced many records, both national and international.

Outside this area, it's a little known fact that much of the sandstone used in Sydney's magnificent old buildings and the Sydney Harbour Bridge pillars, came from down this way. Scottish stonemasons supervised most of the quarrying and cutting of the Sydney-bound stone.
