Moruya the ideal base to explore stunning beaches and unaffected bushland, set on the banks of the sparkling Moruya River with the Deua National Park forming the craggy forest terrain backdrop. Moruya is a relaxed country town with a thriving arts scene and a rich and interesting history. During the gold-mining era, Moruya built itself up with industries such as dairying on the lush Mulenderree flats and surrounds, fishing and oyster farming and some these still form an important part of the town's economy today. 245,000 tonne of exquisite granite used in the pylons of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge was quarried in Moruya and many of the town's magnificent old buildings are also made from this local stone. Today people visiting the region can still explore the remnants of old Granitetown and wharf as well as, wrecked barges used to transport the mammoth rock to building the most famous icon in Australia. Moruya is quickly becoming a cultural hub for Eurobodalla and surrounds with its fantastic arts and events program. Every October, music enthusiasts flock to Moruya for the annual Granite Town Festival. With live music played out of venues across the town and the entertaining Riverlights display, Moruya's spirit truly comes alive. Moruya is also host to the River of Art in May, which celebrates the ebb and flow of visual art, sculpture, performing arts, film and theatre that thrives here.
