BATEMANS BAY is the northern most of the three main towns in Eurobodalla.  It is at the cross roads of the Princes Highway and the Kings Highway which melds visitors from the north as well as from the west including the ACT and south west NSW.

The Bay has a very rich history and has long been the holiday destination for families coming to the coast from inland attracted by the many beaches, rivers and lakes and over several generations they have built holiday homes along the coastal strip that runs south along the picturesque 40 km coastline to Moruya. This is a drive worth taking. 

Batemans Bay has become the principle town of the South Coast and offers most of what a visitor might require in entertainment, provisions and services. There is a wide variety of accommodations available in the town along with a good representation of restaurants, cafes and coffee bars.

The best way to begin your explore of the town is by taking a stroll along the Murra Mia Walkway that follows the Clyde River's edge from the iconic Batemans Bay Bridge to the far end of town via a forefront of jetties, cafes and shops.
