As some of you may know we take great pride in our property and are regulary recgonised with various Tourism Awards. We were once again Finalists in the South Coast Regional Tourism Awards for 2016. We came up against some very stiff competition in our category competing against some big name motels so this time we were not surprised not to take out a Gold Medal.
We were delighted to find out though that we won entry into the Hall of Fame, which is recognition for having won our category for Executive Accommodation 3 times which is quite an achievement in itself considering all those we have had to compete against over the years.
We would like to thank all of those involved and acknowledge the hard work that people put in to make sure that South Coast Tourism delivers a great experience to our customers.
Well there are plenty of reasons to visit Merimbula all year round, including our great golf courses, restaurants, water activities, clubs, shops, attractions and much more which you can find here.
Other reasons to visit in from February to April include the fact that there are less people around (than December and January), the water is warmer and the accommodation tarriffs are cheaper.
But we did promise to give you 3 GREAT reasons to visit in March, so here they are.
- The Merimbula Eat Festival - 13 March
The event is now in its fourth year, and the 2016 menu again showcases the freshest harvest from ocean to farm, seasonal produce and artisan breads and desserts.
The festival is held on the foreshore of Merimbula lake, with premium plated fare served in a market-styled feast between 10am and 2pm. No dish will cost more than $8 and there are locally made beverages to go with them, including Sapphire Coast wines and beer. You can find out more by visiting the Eat Merimbula Facebook Page
