Pambula is an historic country town that is known for its old village beauty and gold production. With the gold production ceasing in 1915 and the nearby township of Merimbula becoming popular Pambula remained untouched and many of the buildings built in the 1850s remain. Pambula is the perfect place to visit when a break from sun and beaches is required.
Explore the Pambula Village on foot to see hotels, schools, the courthouse, inns and churches dating from the 1850s. Pause for a coffee or pie or both at the Wild Rye Bakery Company in the main street and browse the local market for local art, crafts and collectables on the second Sunday of each month in the Pambula Town Hall.
Pack a picnic and walk or bike through the trails at Panboola, the Pambula Wetlands Heritage project. Panboola is a 77 hectare area of floodplain rehabilitated as a wetland for nature conservation, bird habitat and indigenous flora and fauna. With native plants and abundant bird life Panboola is a great place to do a spot of bird watching, take some photos or just get back to nature.
Walk the trails of the majestic Ben Boyd National Park; join a guided horse trail tour through the local forest or along the beach or wander through one of the local art galleries.
Tour a local oyster farm and while you are there sample fresh local oysters with a long cool drink at Wheelers Seafood Restaurant or dine in style at the Grange, a restaurant set in a 1850s mansion built by a veteran of the Battle of Trafalgar.
Days spent relaxing is what holidays are all about and Pambula is the perfect place to visit for a lazy afternoon of coffee, good food and local art.
