Area location and what to do:
Callala Beach is located an easy 2 1/2 hour drive south of Sydney and 3 hour drive from Canberra. It is one of the last sleepy coastal villages with very friendly locals. Surrounded by the best nature can offer in the form of a marine park and numerous national parks.
Great for tranquil getaways during the off season and loads of family fun during the school holiday month as the the village comes to life with the giggles of kids and barks of all shapes and sizes.
Callala Beach is renowned for its 4km stretch of beautiful white sand & clear blue waters and is a favourite spot for resident pods of dolphins and migrating whales. Nature is abundant, kangaroo spotting or bird watching with the wake up calls of kookaburra's, rosellas and a resident pair of sea eagles. Water sports is another enjoyable pass time.
OnTheVerge has two boat ramps in close proximity, Myola (2min drive) and Callala Bay (5min drive). There is a great rock platform for fishing from the beach. Snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, boogie boarding are all very popular activities.
Walking on the beach, bush hikes, bicycle trails and off road cycling are all at your finger tips. The quiet streets and walk/cycle path to the bridge over Callala Creek is great for children to ride their bikes and walk the dogs. There is a grass tennis court that can be booked and a children' playground.
At the Callala Beach RSL try your hand at lawn bowls and for golf enthusiasts or hackers there is a 9 hole golf course where you can spot the Kangaroos. The RSL is a great place to meet and mingle with the locals and other holiday makers. The Chinese restaurant inside the RSL has a cheap and cheerful menu with large portion sizes and don't forget to buy a ticket for the meat tray raffle.
Callala Beach has it own little Italian Restaurant that is dine in, takeaway or delivery and a Burger, Fish & Chip Shop. For extra groceries there is an IGA, butcher, bakery, coffee shop etc at Callala Bay shopping centre which is a short 5 min drive away.
