Moruya with its beautifully preserved and restored historic buildings and churches, Moruya is a country town surrounded by rich farmland and a mountain range backdrop, with easy access to beaches and National Parks. It’s main feature is the magnificent Moruya River the splendour of which can be viewed from the bridge leading into the town centre. Riverside picnics, barbeques or fishing from the banks of the river are popular activities any time of the year.
Fast becoming the “cultural hub” of the South Coast, Moruya hosts the Granite Town Festival in October, the River of Art festival mid-year which features performing artists of local, national and international renown. The town also hosts an on-going dynamic visual arts program showcasing the best of traditional and contemporary art works by some of the finest artists in the region. Exhibitions are held at the Mechanics Institute, Eurobodalla Shire’s sole public arts venue.
From its original inhabitants, the Bugelli-Manji tribe, to bushrangers, the Gold Rush and beyond, Moruya has a rich history filled with the colour and romance typical of Australia's early days.
