Merimbula is such a friendly town and the perfect place to have a holiday. It lies on the hills around Lake Merimbula.
There is so much to be here, so you won't get bored. This seaside town has manly water activities which include fishing, swimming, surfing, boating, lake cruises, scuba diving, sailboarding and canoeing.
The main shopping strip is lined with cafes, restaurants, shops and of course my favourite place to go when I get to a town...The information centre where you can get maps, flyers and book a few activities.
Things to do ...

- Visit the Merimbula Aquarium & Wharf Restaurant
This aquarium is worth a visit but it is only open Wednesday to Sunday 10am - 4pm. They have a 70,000 litre Oceanarium which features 28 tanks of local and tropical marine life. There is also a great gift shop with beautiful gift ware.
- Visit the Potoroo Palace
I just love this place because you can get nice and close to kangaroos, emus and ducks. The animals here roam the park freely and you can hand feed them with an Animal Feed Bag. This place is also non for profit organisation
