Mesmerising hillsides, alluring beaches, small-town country charm and the sparkling Moruya River — now that NSW residents will be allowed to travel in their state after COVID-19 restrictions ease, what more could you want?

It’s everything you’d want from a country town: friendly locals, delicious foods, and enchanting natural wonderlands to explore.

Situated alongside the breathtaking Deua National Park, Moruya is a quick 30-minute trip south from Batemans Bay. You can also fly directly to the nearby to Moruya Airport, just outside of the town’s CBD.

Adrenaline junkies can get their fix with Skydive Oz — or, if you like things just a little bit calmer and still want to explore the stunning views, you can take a trip with south coast Seaplanes or Merit Aviation. Or if revving engines are more your scene, make sure to check out the Moruya Speedway, or nearby GTS dirt carts for a wild ride you won’t forget.

While these adventure activities are temporarily on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions, they’ll be brilliant to enjoy once restrictions lift.

Main and Shelley Beach are a must-visit for families and beach-lovers; the perfect location for a family picnic to soak up the sun. And if you’re after a cultural experience, the Bingi Dreaming track just south of Moruya is one of the most significant cultural walks in the Eurobodalla. The 13.5km hike follows the ancient songline of the Yuin Aboriginal People, where you’ll be greeted by the area’s friendly wildlife, including kangaroos, native birds and wallabies.

While parts of Moruya were decimated by the recent fires, many of the town’s natural resources are still open, with businesses welcoming tourists with open arms — like the Wild Rose Florist, which sells gifts, jewellery, artisanal chocolate, ceramic keep cups and homemade candies.
