Merimbula is a great place for kids to holiday (with their parents of course) as there are plenty of child friendly activities to partake in.
The Best things in Life are Free, especially when you visit Merimbula
One of the most popular places for kids is Micthies Jetty and it's a short walk from Lakeside Holiday Apartments. The simple old wooden jetty is home to local fishing charter and SUP board hire, but it provides kids with hours of entertainment as the run and jump into the lake, bombing and diving. It's simple, it's free and it's fun and you might even find yourself jumping in too, otherwise you can sit on the beach and watch.
Take the kids to Spencer Park. There are BBQ facilities, kids playground, plus large grassy areas perfect for the family picnic. The lake is tidal which means you can dig in the sand or enjoy a swim. If the tide's right you can almost walk back to Lakeside!
