Moruya / Moruya Heads - Cities, Towns and Localities

South Coast Country

A charming small town on the banks of the Moruya River, rich in history and today the administrative centre of the Eurobodalla Coast. Originally settled around 1848 the area became known as Moruya or in the local aboriginal spelling ‘Mherroyah’ which means ‘resting place of black swans’.

The town soon grew and then prospered with the discovery of gold at Araluen nearby. The gold fields here were one of the richest in the country for a time and Moruya prospered, acting as the gateway to the fields.

Later on granite quarries were setup to supply the fine buildings being constructed in Sydney such as the Martin Place GPO, Bank of NSW, and other buildings and statues. The granite was of such good quality that it was selected to build the pylons at each end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Many of the fine buildings in Moruya are also constructed or have used the granite from the local quarries.

Today the area is home to a fine dairy industry and tourism has taken off especially at Broulee just east of Moruya at the river mouth. Moruya makes a great place to base yourself from which to explore the surrounding area, including Moruya Heads, about 10 kms to the east. Moruya Heads boasts scenic views north along the coast and west over the estuary of the Moruya River, beyond which are the magnificent Eastern Escarpment.
