Merimbula with its great climate, pristine beaches and abundant natural beauty is an ideal location for your next holiday.
Bass and Flinders explored the Merimbula area in 1797 – and were the first of many ‘visitors to be struck by the beauty of its waterways, and surrounding forests.
While oysters are a popular and profitable industry today, the discovery of a large number of middens either side of the lake proves the original Aboriginal settlers were just as passionate about them!
Close by are some of Australia’s most significant national parks offering a range of nature experiences that draw visitors from all over the world.
Merimbula buzzes with special events year round – the annual jazz festival, orchid shows, fishing competitions or the Merimbula Malibu or Classic wavesailing, kitesurfing and SUPs (stand up paddle), and food festivals.
The Merimbula Boardwalk skirts the northern shores of the Top Lake section of Merimbula Lake and is a 3.5km stunning round trip, broken by a wildlife experiences on the way. Or if you’re feeling a little more energetic, try standup paddleboarding in the protected lake waters, a local favourite.
And, of course, there is wonderful seafood. Don’t miss out on award winning locally grown oysters and mussels.

With the help of our members, Merimbula Tourism ran a successful campaign into Regional Victoria in February 2015. TV ads were shown through Prime from the 8th Feb - 21st Feb 2015. Merimbula had a 30 second and 15 second ad as well as 11 member 15 second ads. With hard work and negotiation the value of the TV campaign was well into $100,000 worth of advertising, although this is not what we had to pay. The radio campaign went to Bendgio and Ballarat which was an expense close to $6000 for Merimbula Tourism, but we also had over $11,000 in giveaway prizes donated by our members. Social Media was focused on Regional Victoria from 7th Feb - 20th Feb.
