Located three hours drive from Sydney and part of the Eurobodalla Shire and the South Coast region, is the seaside resort of Bateman's Bay, sitting on the banks of the Clyde River’s estuary, looking upriver to the mountains, and seaward. To the north and south are the beaches and National Parks.

Kangaroo on Pebbly Beach

Bateman's Bay was named by Captain Cook in 1770 after his superior officer on the Northumberland. The first Europeans in this South Coast region were the survivors of the Sydney Cove, shipwrecked nearby in 1797. Three survivors of the shipwreck lasted the long and arduous journey back to Sydney, some 280 km. George Bass was to visit the area later in 1797, continuing south to Eden. Today, we have the George Bass Memorial surf boat race, which covers his journey from Bateman's Bay to Eden.

The Bateman's Bay Clyde River ferry crossing was established in 1871, being replaced by a lifting span bridge in 1956. This is the oldest bridge of its type in Australia and is a recognised landmark on the South Coast.

The Clyde River is popular with anglers looking for bream and flathead, as well as the offshore, reef and game fishing. Come taste the Clyde River oyster and local seafood.
