Australian Towns & Cities
New South Wales: Moruya
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Moruya is a very neat town, set in the lush south coast farmlands of NSW, and has the scenic Great Dividing Range as a backdrop to the west. The adjacent Moruya River is very wide and offers plenty for water sports, fishing etc. As the town is about 10km inland (on the Princes Hwy), the nearby Moruya Heads acts as the town's beach. The stone used in the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge was quarried on the town's outskirts.
