#van life in Merimbula
Welcome RVers, caravanners & campers
Merimbula and its pristine environment, the heart of the Sapphire Coast, is simply a place where you can relax, reconnect with family or release your inner child. Fish off Merimbula Wharf, float with the tide at Bar Beach, kayak on Top Lake and surf the break at Main Beach. For those who’ve exhausted their beach time, visit the national parks that surround or take a wander through the boutique retail offerings within the town.
One of the best places in the region to enjoy our famed local produce, Merimbula is home to a wide selection of cafes and restaurants all offering up the best of local fare. The town shines all year round with fishing, golf and bowls, all ready to complement the beautiful, unspoilt beaches and estuaries on offer.
