About Eurobodalla

The Place

Eurobodalla is located on the New South Wales south coast and enjoys a reputation as a water and nature lovers' paradise. We have 83 beaches, four major river systems and lakes, and many islands and estuaries all occupied by a rich variety of sea, bird and animal life. Our 110 kilometres of coastline includes the Batemans Marine Park and 3,400 square kilometres of land. More than 80 percent of the land is either national park or state forest.

The people

Our three major towns are Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma, and there are many smaller villages that each have a strong rural and coastal heritage and indigenous culture. The local economy was once based on dairying, forestry and fishing and is now driven by tourism, agriculture and fishing, retail and property, and has an emerging arts, health, education and wellbeing sector.

Message from the Mayor - Liz Innes

As Mayor of Eurobodalla Shire Council, I am 100% behind the bid to attract the 'One Night Stand' to our beautiful part of the South Coast of NSW.

As a mum of young daughters and an avid music fan, I'm personally very excited about this opportunity. Being a small coastal community, we often lose our young people to the big city lights and we have all had to travel to attend concerts and music gigs. To make this happen for our community, young and old, would be absolutely fantastic and has the complete support of our Council.

Not only would it be a fantastic win for our local community and economy, I'm confident the people of Australia visiting for this event will absolutely love the Eurobodalla experience.

My fellow Councillors and I really want to make this happen for our local community. The three bids for Eurobodalla get a huge thumbs up from us!

Clr Liz Innes
Mayor
