BODALLA is a thriving community that offers great hospitality and  diverse range of attractions including its old church to its historic streetscape.

The Yuin people are considered to be the traditional owners of the region, and it is from their language that the town and the previous estate and station derived its name. Several meanings have been put forward including Boat Alley", "tossing a child up in the arms", "haven for boats" and "several waters".

Heritage buildings house galleries run by talented artists and craftspeople and its choice of award winning cafes using fresh local produce is reason enough to stop for a meal.

The history of the town is based around dairy with the most famous label of all being Bodalla Cheese.

You can watch cheese and icecream making through the windows of the Bodalla Dairy Cheese factory and then go next door to try the dairy products from designer cheese to the absolute freshest of milk and National prize winning icecreams.

Down the back of the dairy you will a host of poddy calves eager for a pat.
