Eurobodalla National Park
This sliver of national park runs in three sections along the south coast between Moruya Heads and Tilba Tilba Lake, just south of Cape Dromedary. It is particularly picturesque, with 30 kilometres of lovely beaches, broken by estuaries and backed by wetlands, lakes and spotted gum forest. At Bingie Bingie Point and Congo Point there are signiﬁcant Aboriginal relics. European settlement dates from the 1870s, and an old pilot station at South Head Moruya, now a meteorological station, remains from the days when coastal steamers plied the Moruya River.
Eucalypts are the dominant species, but there are stretches of banksia woodland and low open grassland with feathery casuarinas and mangroves in low-lying areas near the estuaries. An array of fauna includes possums and gliders and 11 bat species. The ocean, river and freshwater habitats attract many migratory waterbirds including 17 wader species in summer. In season, eastern curlews, whimbrels and godwits can be seen probing in and around the coastal waters. More majestic birds such as the white-bellied sea-eagle and the whistling kite frequent the skies, and black swans and chestnut teals congregate around the lakes and estuaries.
Most visitors come to camp, ﬁsh and go boating. You can canoe on Congo Creek, Lake Tarourga and Lake Brou. Powerboats are permitted on Corunna Lake (mostly outside the park), and on Mummaga Lake (no jetskis allowed). The park’s beaches are beautiful but are not patrolled (there are patrolled beaches during peak season at nearby towns). There is a campground with some facilities, bush camping is allowed and there are picnic areas in a choice of locations throughout the park. If you’d like to explore the park on foot, strike out on the Bingi Dreaming Track (14 km, 8 hours, medium difficulty) along the coast south from Congo to Tuross Head.
