Welcome to Batemans Bay
A sparkling estuary, restaurant-lined seafront promenade and beaches within easy reach: Batemans Bay has all the ingredients for a summer holiday. As a busy service centre, replete with car dealerships and fast-food joints, it isn't as charming as other coastal towns. But make no mistake, BB is water-sports heaven. Sandy, wave-kissed beaches extending south provide countless options for surfers, while the nearby Tomaga River estuary draws SUPs and kayaks to its calm waters.
The area's longest residents are the Yuin people, in particular the Walbunja group, whose gifts of food are thought to have been instrumental in saving early settlers from starvation.
