Where to stay in Merimbula

About Merimbula

Known as the “Jewel of the Sapphire Coast”, Merimbula is surrounded by gorgeous coastal environments, including a lake, secluded bay and an array of Tasman Sea beaches. National parks and wildlife sanctuaries encircle Merimbula, which is also popular for its food festivals, whale watching, water sports and incredible seafood.

Things to do

If you’re up for some adventure, spend some time kayaking or canoeing around Lake Merimbula or beside rocky cliffs along the coastline. Scenic flights offer a stunning bird’s-eye view of the beaches, hinterland and townships, while stand-up paddleboarding is a great way for active travellers to explore the waterways.

When it comes to beach days, you can’t go wrong at the six-kilometre-long Merimbula Main Beach, popular with surfers and sunbathers. Head to Bar Beach if you prefer snorkelling or Spencer Park Beach if you’ve got kids who’d appreciate a playground. When hunger strikes, make your way to Merimbula Aquarium & Wharf Restaurant for fresh seafood and Australian wine on the water.

Do you love nature? Don’t miss Potoroo Palace, a beloved wildlife reserve with kangaroos, dingoes, pythons, emus and other native animals. Mimosa Rocks National Park is worth the 40-minute drive north, thanks to its pristine beaches and unique birdlife, such as the swift parrots.

Embrace local culture by visiting during the annual Merimbula Jazz Festival, where you can listen to talented jazz musicians, sample regional fare and pick up unique handmade treasures. Hang around during winter to see humpback whales cruising past the beaches or get up close on a whale-watching cruise.

Getting around

You can drive to Merimbula in about three hours from Canberra and six hours from Sydney, where you can also catch direct flights to Merimbula Airport that take just over one hour. Rent a car to explore the greater coastline, while you can simply walk or catch taxis to get around town.
