Experience the heart and soul of Mogo

Mogo was the well-kept secret in the Eurobodalla coastal wilderness. It was a place I’d drive past as travelling up and down the Princes Highway and barely notice. But when bushfires ripped through the tiny historic gold mining village of Mogo, losing both homes and shops. They offered me an opportunity to help the town recover.

As one of the towns hardest hit by the South Coast bushfires in December 2019, Mogo’s rapid recovery has been nothing short of inspiring.I got to see the heart and soul of the Mogo community, its rich Aboriginal culture, and how much they have to offer. Travellers wanting something different to tourist crowds, long lines, packed sidewalks and cafes so crowded you can’t hear yourself speak; Mogo is your place to getaway.Here you can escape!!

Mogo is nestled in gorgeous bushland, and home to the iconic Mogo Wildlife Park, home to more than 250 animals, and one of the only two places in Australia where you can see the majestic white lion. It’s also home to the country’s largest collection of primates! Mogo’s old-world charm, cottage architecture and friendly hospitality are hard to find these days.

They offer a wonderland of gift and craft shops with pottery, leatherwork, jewellery, clothing, woodwork, furniture, crystals and picture galleries all designed to lure wallets from the pockets and handbags of shoppers. As the first mainland Australian town to go plastic bag free in 2004, Mogo Village is proud of its environmentally sustainable practices.Many shops are housed in the town’s original dwellings, adding an extra layer to your slow wander around the village.

As a bonus, enjoy a delightful meal or a snack at the special country fare cafes. and specialist food shops whilst chatting with the locals.Whether you’re looking for shopping, nature or a place to go wild, you can experience and take part in the diverse range of stimulating events and cultural activities available at Mogo.

Today it is rare to pass through Mogo without feeling I should stop. The sides of the road are crowded, people are everywhere, there is a buzz of excitement. Take a wander through the fascinating streets and attractions, mingle with locals, get an authentic Aussie experience, and have a fantastic vacation. Mogo is a must-see part of the New South Wales South Coast and the perfect place to spend a great four days. Mogo is my new most favourite destination to visit. Once you’ve been, it will be yours too.
