We moved to Merimbula 13 years ago when our boys were 4 & 7. It is a great place to raise a family and it is easy to make connections through sports, schools, and clubs. It is such a beautiful and safe area.
Not sure if you ended up making the move to Merimbula, this place is a beautiful area to live with plenty for children and adults alike. Great people and plenty of tourism also
There are lots of opportunities to meet people in Merimbula, especially if you have young children. Obviously would meet people through schools, but there are lots of sporting clubs and after school activities for kids to get involved in such as Nippers, Soccer, Football, Netball, Athletics, Gymnastics, dancing and much more. It is a great place to bring up kids and beautiful place to live. The local Chamber of Commerce is holding a Sea Change Expo in January 2022.
