This town is also filled with history, which you can experience firsthand as you are wandering around.

How to Get to Merimbula

Best Time of the Year to Visit Merimbula

The fall season, which is March through May, is often the slowest time of the year in Merimbula. Therefore, that is the best time of the year to visit Merimbula. The temperatures are finally cooling down at that point and it hardly ever rains. The downside is that if you visit later in the season, you will be met with colder temperatures which are not great for swimming.

Things to See and Do in and Around Merimbula

One of the main things on your itinerary for visiting Merimbula will be spending time on as many of the local beaches as possible. Main Beach is the most popular option. It offers five kilometers of sandy shoreline, which is perfect for swimming, relaxing on the sand, or surfing. Other beaches to add to your list include Mitchies Jetty, Bar Beach, and Short Point.

Before you leave the water, you will want to venture out on a whale watching charter. The best time to see the whales though is from September through November, so you must plan your trip accordingly. If you are not in Merimbula at the right time, you can still see marine life over at the Merimbula Aquarium. The aquarium might be small, but it is packed with animals and tons of information.

Hiking is fantastic in Merimbula and you have so many trails available to choose from. The most popular hiking trail is the Merimbula Boardwalk. Once you conquer that, you can choose to hike through the Goodenia Rainforest or wander along the Pinnacles Loop.

Best Places to Eat and Drink in Merimbula

There are quite a few places to get a bite to eat and a drink in Merimbula. However, some of those places are better than others. The Waterfront Café is amazing for breakfast and lunch every day. This restaurant is down by the water, so incredible views are almost always guaranteed for your dining pleasure. They also offer Sunday brunch to add a little extra to that quieter day of the week.

The Merimbula Aquarium and Wharf Restaurant serves breakfast and lunch most days of the week, as well as dinner on the weekends. The menu is full of fresh seafood dishes and you must save room for dessert. When you arrive, you will want to ask for a seat with a view of the water if possible, so you can have the best experience.

Ordering a glass of wine is easy at the Ritzy Wine and Tapas Bar. It is choosing the wine that you order that will be the difficult part. They have many different Australian and European wines available, as well as a plethora of different cocktails and beers. You may arrive at this restaurant seeking a drink, but you will leave full since you won’t be able to resist ordering a few different tapas after smelling the ones everyone else is ordering.

This is everything you must know about Merimbula in Australia. All this information will allow you to plan an amazing vacation there and you can then just relax and follow the plans you made.
