Autumn glory on the Sapphire Coast Merimbula

Three reasons to visit the Sapphire Coast at this time of year are:

1. SUNRISES. It's worth getting up early to find an oceanside seat and welcome the new day, before heading to one of our cafes to enjoy a coffee. Maybe you could then take a walk along the Merimbula boardwalk, or walk from Merimbula Main Beach all the way through to Pambula Beach, stroll around the quiet streets of Fishpen or enjoy the Lake Street walk from Spencer Park to Bar Beach. 

2. SUNSETS. If you're not an early riser you can do your day in reverse and end with one of the walks around Merimbula or maybe head over to Pambula for the Panboola wetland walk where you will encounter birds, kangaroos and other wildlife. We love to take in the sunsets from the Merimbula Boardwalk where the colours over Top Lake go from orange to yellow to pink to purple and everywhere inbetween.

3. FOOD! Merimbula and Pambula have a multitude of dining options, with fresh enthusiasm leading to new venues and new food. One of our dinner favourites is Bar Monti in Merimbula which serves fresh pasta, wine and good times. Little Alice Galleria in Merimbula is also a great space to get together 7 days a week from early until late. They also host special events and live entertainment occasionally so are worth following on social media. Banksia Restaurant in Pambula is truly special for fine dining in the ambience of the old Pambula Bank, a heritage listed building and local landmark.

Golf group returns to Fairway Motor Inn

We have just enjoyed the annual visit by our group of golfers from Canberra who have been coming every year for 18 years!! They spend several days in the region and one thing they always look forward to is dining out to enjoy our fresh seafood.
With us being right next door to Wheelers Restaurant they always enjoy a night there, but they were at a loose end on another night and asked for our recommendation, with a special request for fresh crayfish.
We knew just the place - Merimbula Aquarium Wharf Restaurant !!
It was on a night the restaurant was closed, but Anthony and Sally opened especially for them. A great night was had by all and was truly one to remember!!
A big thank you to the Merimbula Aquarium Wharf Restaurant staff and to our guests for supporting our local businesses, see you next year!
If you are planning a group getaway, ask us about the many different dining and catering options. We have spacious grounds so can organise on-site catering vans, plus we have great local contacts in the restaurant industry who are more than willing to look after our visitors!
