History of the Area
The period from the 1840's to the 1900's saw a rapid development of the area as a result of several often short-lived gold rushes, the growth of more intensive pastoral and agricultural land uses, and the expansion of timber getting activities. Many small towns grew up throughout the area, often acting as transport hubs and points of supply for surrounding districts. South Head at Moruya has many reminders of the important role shipping played, including several breakwaters and training walls that guided shipping through the river mouth, as well as the pilot's cottage and several smaller buildings situated on the headland.Be the first to write a review
