A group of small businesses have collaborated to launch a new tourism marketing campaign for Batemans Bay, aimed at boosting the local economy following the challenges of bushfires, flooding and the COVID pandemic.
Visit Batemans Bay, the brainchild of the Batemans Bay Business and Tourism Chamber, this week released a new online guide and social media pages (@visitbatemansbay) to provide visitors with real-time, authentic travel information.
Chamber President Mathew Hatcher said he was excited at the prospect of tourism operators taking fate into their own hands.
“There's never been a better time to visit Batemans Bay, especially now as we head out of summer, there are tourism operators that still very much need Sydney and Canberra to come down for a sneaky mid-week getaway or a long weekend.
“Tourism is the driving force of Batemans Bay - we have great hotels, eateries and experiences from Durras to Batemans Bay to Mogo to Broulee. It's great to see iconic attractions like Mogo Wildlife Park come on board with local hotel operators and restaurants joining forces to tell our story to potential visitors,” Mr Hatcher said.

The website came about as a proactive response to Eurobodalla Tourism permanently closing the Batemans Bay Information Centre. Being fully aware that visitors to the Batemans Bay region needed a quality, informative website that offered more than single paragraphs of the general sights as pulled down from the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse the Chamber has set out to develop a quality portal that will offer the experiences, local knowledge, history, walking tours, eateries and activities in the Batemans Bay and wider region via an easy to navigate website accessed by swiping the many inviting QR codes displayed around the town or via the vibrant social media feed that captures and presents the many facets of the region from Sculpture trails to unique zoo visits with loads of incentives thrown in.
Visit Batemans Bay is proudly endorsed by the South Coast Travel Guide, Eurobodalla's comprehensive tourism website.
