Mogo has a charm that is hard to define. The former gold rush village has developed that certain something – an authentic but quirky mix of history, art, food, shopping and outdoor adventure. It’s worth exploring the entirety of both sides of the main street to ensure you don’t miss any hidden treasures. Shops, galleries and eateries now fill the old miners’ cottages and stores to both ends of the village. Creativity thrives in Mogo, and the result is both surprising and fun. A few hours of exploring often produces something unexpected and unique to take home. While very much a place to eat, shop and discover, it’s worth pausing to consider Mogo was once part of Australia’s third most productive goldfield, with 30,000 people from across the globe, calling Eurobodalla’s goldfields home. Legend has it there's still gold close to foot, and a lot of prospecting continues quietly in the surrounding area. In a town known for its quirkiness, finding one of Australia best zoos here makes perfect sense. Mogo Wildlife Park is much awarded and truly superb. Owned by a passionate animal advocate, the zoo and its collection of amazing and varied animals unfold across acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. Mogo Wildlife Park has an intimacy and atmosphere not found at larger zoos and invites you to linger and spend more time with each animal. Like all of Eurobodalla, Mogo offers superb outdoor activities. Just north are the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens. These gardens abound with native flora and fauna, with a focus on plants native to the south coast. The barbecue area and children’s playground here are remarkable, with a highly imaginative design incorporating music and exploration that brings out the inner-child in most visitors. A historic, artistic, shopper’s paradise surrounded by outdoor adventure; Mogo still has gold in spades.
