Our community continues to think outside of the Square

JJs at the Marina are calling for Expressions of Interest from those keen to sell some Artsy Crafty Bits and Bobs at a Night Market once a month on a Wednesday. They are hoping to start JULY. The stalls will be FREE. This initiative builds on the positive moves being taken right along the Batemans Bay foreshore by businesses such as JJs at The Marina and the Ralston Bros with their pop up Oyster Bar/ Cafe and the very popular Heli Tours flying over the oyster bays. The Bridge To Bridge kayak event and the Eurobodalla Triathlon also showcased this the Clyde as did the annual Batemans Bay Sailing regatta. More recently the Batemans Bay Chamber of Commerce have announced their inaugural Sculpture by the Clyde event for September. Combined, this effort and this vision driven by the community is bringing a breath of fresh air to the Batemans Bay foreshore. Additions such as the new Variety Inclusive Playground at Corrigans Beach and the very popular push for an off-leash dog fenced exercise area in the unused grasslands of Corrigans reserve adjacent to the pet friendly beach and caravan park will also be a boon in attracting visitors to the area. Further afield we find more and more events being organised by local business chambers and the community such as the Narooma Oyster festival, Granite Town in Moruya, the annual Tilba Easter Festival. While these are mainstream one major attraction that has long gone under the radar of Eurobodalla Tourism are the fishing competitions up and down the coast from Ulladulla to the Victorian Border including those very sucessful competitions held in the Eurobodalla. The return to the South East in recreational fishing alone is $300 million per year yet it gains little attention in the glossy tourism brochures that do little to mention the vibrancy of the area OUT OF SEASON.
