From the cottage it's only a 5 minute downhill walk to the coffee and cakes of Gundary Store. A further 5 minutes flat walk takes you to the river, and then it's only 10 minutes walk to town along the river on a shady path. On this path you won't even need to cross the highway in busy summer times
Moruya is only a short drive from many beaches, some of which you won't have to share with anyone but seagulls. It's only a 5 minute drive to Moruya Heads main beach for a surf, playground and the Salty Earth cafe, or the more sheltered Shelley Beach in the Eurobodalla National Park at the Moruya river mouth. Congo, Bingi or Tuross Head beaches are 15 minutes drive to the southeast, and Tuross also has two lakes for fishing and paddling. Broulee and Mossy Point beaches and the Tomaga River are 15 drive northeast.
On Saturday morning the Moruya markets have over 100 stalls in the summer season. There is also the SAGE Farmers markets on Tuesday afternoons, twice voted the best farmers market in Australia You can meet your local grower and buy directly from them all your seasonal produce, including fruit and veggies, bread, cakes, icecream, honey, meat and cheese. Many of the local restaurants pride themselves on their use of local produce, and much of this is purchased at this market.
Near the town boat jetty is the Moruya Memorial Swimming Pool, now 50 years young and still a great place to get a lane to yourself and do some quiet laps. There is also a toddler and children's pool and bouncing castle on summer weekends.
The Moruya Golf Course is literally down the road, and has 18 long holes. There are 3 other golf courses in the Eurobodalla, including the challenging Narooma golf course, just 30 minutes to the south.
Moruya has many boutiques, or there is more shopping up the road at Mogo, as well as at least 10 coffee places in the town of Moruya.
Nearby outdoor options include kayaking, surfing or stand up paddleboarding SUP with surf schools and board rental available in and around the Moruya area. There's skydiving and flying lessons, or you can just be a passenger in the sea plane and have a bird's eye view of the Eurobodalla, the "Land of Many Waters".
Please note that the cottage is non-smoking and we are unable to accomodate pets.
