TUROSS HEAD is a quiet seaside community located on a headland that juts out into the Tasman Sea with Coila Lake to the north and Tuross Lake and Tuross River to the south making the headland virtually surrounded by water.

The two lakes provide a safe environment for water-based activities with the opportunity for sailing on Coila Lake and for restricted water skiing in the Tuross Lake broadwater. Both have easily accessible waterways to explore by kayak or run-about with boat ramp facilities.

Tuross Lake is a dedicated fishing haven and a must visit location for recreational fishers. 
There are coastal walks and a cycleway that provides a family safe link from one end of the village to the other.

Tuross Lake oysters are world renowned for their quality. The large number of middens on the Tuross peninsular proves the original Aboriginal settlers were just as passionate about them as we are. 

Tuross Head has cycling, kayaking, surfing, sailing, swimming, fishing, golf, bowls and so much more.

The village offers a range of accommodation including bed and breakfasts, camping sites, a motel and a wide selection of holiday houses to suit most budgets. There is a local shopping centre, a golf and bowling club and a choice of cafes and restaurants.
