Renowned for picturesque ocean views and an abundance of wildlife, South Durras is a popular go-to for families seeking surf, sun and sand. Durras Beach stretches for nearly three kilometres and has something for everyone. Surfers will be more than happy with the swell while little ones can get their feet wet in the tidal pools while plunging their depths for exotic sea creature finds. Keep eyes peeled for the kangaroos that have been known to graze close to the beach.
Groupies won’t have to travel far before they stumble upon charming Batemans Bay, full of holidays vibes thanks to the groups of tourists who stream in during the summer months. The bounty of nearby beaches is a well-kept secret amongst initiated visitors, while mountains and river scenery offer scenic vistas in every direction. Famous for its Clyde River oysters and big game fish, the region welcomes seafood lovers and keen anglers with open arms.
