If you want a few pints and great meal, the ribs at the Adelaide Hotel are magnificent (although only available seasonally) and a courtesy bus is available from the entrance to the property. There are plenty of tourist attractions to explore in the area, including the stunning Eurobodalla National Park, the historic town of Mogo and the renowned Mogo Zoo. For those who love the outdoors, the Moruya river is perfect for fishing, kayaking and swimming. If you're looking for natural beauty, you'll be spoilt for choice. Take a drive along the coast and discover beautiful, secluded beaches, or explore the nearby forests and waterfalls. Our riverside camp sites are great for large or small groups boasting generously sized and spaced grassed sites offering beautiful views of the abundant Moruya river along with individual firepits* Whatever your interests, Glenduart Farm Riverside Camps are the perfect place to relax and enjoy all that the South Coast has to offer. THE IMPORTANT STUFF: ACCESS: As you enter the property, you'll find yourself driving down an unsealed dirt road, before embarking on approx 100 meters of fairly flat to gently sloping paddocks. We recommend 4WD or AWD vehicles to access, however will leave this to your discretion. PETS: We are a working farm with horses and cows that are easily spooked and we only allow dogs under very (very) special circumstances. Please send an enquiry if you wish to bring a furbaby along, but as a rule, we do not allow dogs on the property. AMENITIES: There are no drinking water or electricity provisions on site. There is a toilet provided with walking distance to all sites. Our future campers and native wildlife request that you keep your business contained to onboard toilets, porta potties or the toilet provided. Under NO circumstances are toilet cassettes to be emptied in or around the river or campsites. RIVER ACCESS: Our large sites offer sweeping views and great fishing however the banks are raised and will require some tenacity if you wish to swim or pop a kayak in. You can however moore small watercraft including boats & jetskis after putting them in at the boat ramp a short drive up the river. FENCING: We have farm fencing in place between the camp sites and the river bank, however we advise small children be monitored as there are several open access points along the riverbank. As mentioned, we are a working farm using gates and fences to contain our livestock. As a rule, leave all gates as you find them (eg: if you open a gate, close it after you. If its already open, leave it open) WILDLIFE: You'll see huge wombat holes all along the river bank - although tempting for the kids, please refrain from digging these out further as our wombats still use them as houses and they contribute to riverbank erosion. You may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of our fabled red stag in the evenings and will see an array of beautiful birds and other native animals that share our property. Please note: Any form of animal cruelty will not be tolerated and there is no hunting allowed on the property. *FIRES: Govt / weather restrictions permitting.

Camping near Batemans Bay guide

Overview

Located at the mouth of the Clyde River, Batemans Bay makes a great base to explore the Eurobodalla Shire. Taste succulent oysters straight from the farm gate in this seafood-rich region, hike through national parks, or go swimming, kayaking, surfing, canoeing or fishing at one of the area’s many deserted beaches. Animal lovers can keep an eye out for native wildlife such as koalas and kangaroos, or guarantee an encounter with a visit to Birdland Animal Park or Mogo Wildlife Park, located in the historic town of Mogo nearby.

Clyde River National Park

Cross the bridge north out of town and head to Clyde River National Park, which has 9km of river frontage perfect for water sports such as kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Offering views over the river towards the Pacific Ocean, Holmes Lookout is a great spot for picnics, with the chance to spot birdlife such as kookaburras, colourful parrots and honeyeaters while you’re there.

Birdland Animal Park

This wildlife park in Batemans Bay is another great place to see birds including black swans, pelicans and egrets, as well as native Australian animals such as orphaned wombat joeys and reptiles, including goannas.

The family-friendly Durras Lake Discovery Trail is a fun and easy walk, with everything from stepping stones to jump across and tree logs to balance on.

Observation Point

Heading south of Batemans Bay, Observation Point is another great lookout and picnic area, with views over the beach and out to Snapper Island.
