River Boat Cruise

Visitors will enjoy taking a riverboat cruise on the Clyde River.


The Clyde River runs through the heart of Batemans Bay and is popular with fishers chasing bream and flathead, while offshore there is excellent reef and game fishing. The south coast between Batemans Bay and Narooma is well known as a generous fishing destination, but it’s become even better since being designated as the Batemans Marine Park.

Now the breeding grounds, like the sponge gardens, kelp beds, mangroves, and seagrass habitats have been protected, while still leaving over 80% of the Park available for recreational fishing.

Mogo Zoo

One of the most fascinating attractions of the region is the famous Mogo Zoo, specializing in endangered and exotic species. The zoo houses white lions, snow leopards, reptiles, meerkats and a whole host of other wildlife that is sure to be an unforgettable day.


For golfers, Batemans Bay offers a 27-hole championship golf course. If you love playing golf, you’ll love what Batemans Bay has to offer. Golf courses perched on cliff tops with exhilarating vistas across the ocean or positively scary holes where the fairway is just the foam of wave on rock.

Wild life walks

Where else in Australia can you go for a long bush or rainforest walk and encounter birds, wallabies, kangaroos, possums, bandicoots, the rare tiger quoll, owls the list goes on?. The area is home to some amazing National Parks and State Forests.


Batemans Bay is a kayaking heaven with four major river systems, 20 lakes, 83 beaches and many islands along 130 kilometres of marine park coastline.

Flatwater or sea, paddle away from it all to discover some of the quietest and least touched places in Australia, or glide in for lunch at a waterside cafe or restaurant. Kayak rivers, estuaries, creeks, inlets, lakes and the ocean in some of the cleanest water in the world.
