Tuross Head is a place many visitors never want to leave. Spend time here and you are bound to meet someone who has done just that. Set on a low-lying headland perched between twin lakes, and with stunning ocean beaches stretching north and south, the small village is surrounded by magnificent waterways. The beach area to the north of the inlet is sublime, with the water ranging from crystal clear to deep blue as it alternates the sandy depths and shallows. The beach here has a knack for attracting driftwood and it’s not unusual to find sun-bleached castaway-style shelters, or impromptu abstract art forms, crafted by other beachgoers. Across the narrow inlet to the south, the long tapering sandbar that protects the lake becomes a wide beach forming the gateway to Eurobodalla National Park. A swim or kayak across the sparkling water to the sandbar, and time spent wading with the rays, fish and birds, is a life-affirming pleasure that lingers with you long after. Not far from the inlet, on the calm waters of Tuross Lake, is the small but enchanting waterfront café area. Once the working boat sheds and wharf for the commercial fishery, the original timber building and dock are largely unchanged. It’s a special place, and almost unique in allowing you to tie your kayak or boat up right next to your table, or cast a line while having a coffee. A meal here at sunset, watching the water, earth and sky shift through the spectrum of colours, is particularly fine. Tuross Lake here is renowned for large and plentiful flathead. Fed by the Tuross River, a network of natural channels provides hidden fishing holes, unexpected islands and sheltered picnic spots. On the opposite side of the peninsula, the smaller shallower Coila Lake is famous for large bream and small greenback prawns. Prawning, in season can be as simple as walking the shallows with a torch and scoop net, and is a relaxing and rewarding way to spend a summer evening with family and friends.
