Mogo village

Just ten minutes up the road from Batemans Bay is the little village of Mogo. Originally a booming 1850s gold rush settlement, Mogo's heyday didn't last too long, and it became a quiet little hamlet. In the 1980s a number of artists and craftspeople arrived, and it has since evolved into a hub of galleries, shops and cafes, largely catering to tourists (including plenty from Canberra!). Some of the original cottages have survived, and other shops and houses have been built in sympathetic designs.

The fudge shop in the middle of this photo, is definitely worth a visit, or you can order online.
