Please note
  • Remember to take your binoculars if you want to go whale watching.
  • The weather in the area can be extreme and unpredictable, so please ensure you’re well prepared for your visit.

Moruya Heads lookout offers superb coastal views taking in the scenic mouth of Moruya River. In spring, bring your binoculars for whale watching as these gentle giants migrate south back towards the Southern Ocean for another summer of feeding on krill. Enjoy a picnic with friends and family in this beautiful part of Eurobodalla National Park.

Keep a lookout on the beach as there are plenty of birdwatching opportunities, with the endangered little tern and hooded plover calling the area home. Come spring, Moruya Heads is enlivened with wildflowers, including coastal wattle, banksia and pittosporum for you to feast your eyes on. And, with beaches nearby, you can also seize hotter days with swimming, surfing or a bout of fishing.

Close to Moruya Heads lookout is historic Moruya Heads cemetery, where 20 burials are on record and some headstones remain visible. The earliest recorded burial is from 23 August 1858 – a reminder of early European heritage in the area.
