"Good Natured Folk but Chatterboxes"

Stunning natural beauty not appreciated by locals and the local Council. Nearby hills scarred by cleared areas for electricity pylons and service stations built in wrong places (previous nature reserves). It's a tatty place but has its own charm in that it still retains a old fishing village atmosphere. With sophisticated planning vision it could be made the Riviera (sic?) of the NSW far South Coast.
Pros
  • Natural beauty, especially the estuary, ocean.
  • Overblessed with supermarkets and big tradies stores
  • Easy parking
Cons
  • retirees (talk too much)
  • terrible traffic congestion in holiday periods

"Batemans Bay - Great Holiday Destination"

A leisurely 4 hours drive south of Sydney Batemans Bay is at the mouth of the Clyde River. Batemans Bay has safe beaches for all the family yet not far away surfer can enjoy catching the waves. Snorkelling and diving are popular pastimes as if fishing with your choice of estuary, beach, rock or boat. The Clyde River oysters are enjoyed worldwide and have a good reputation. Accommodation is plentiful at local motels and caravan part as well several well known resorts. There is a friendly atmosphere to the town with good shopping facilities. Apart from beaches and water sports, the town of Mogo is only 5 mins down the road. Here you can enjoy quaint little shops, historical artefacts and a visit to the Mogo Zoo or Dinosaur Museum. There is also a Gold Mining display where you can pan for gold.
