If shops & restaurants are more your thing, you won't be disappointed with lots of gorgeous little stores tucked away, along with enough cafes, bars and eateries to keep you fully satisfied.

Some of our feature events are EAT Merimbula, our annual locavore festival, Merimbula's Jazz Festival, the Malibu Classic Surf Comp and the Merimbula Wavesailing and Kite Boarding Comp.
