Boasting stunning coastal scenery, Marlo is a popular fishing destination. Drop a line in the river, lakes or beach for numerous species of good eating fish. Chat to the locals for clues of what’s biting where. FAMILY FUN Marlo’s largest caravan park, Marlo Ocean View Caravan and Camping Park boasts a vast expanse of 13 acres of lush grassed area with 250 sites, cabins with en suites, on-site premium vans, on-site vans with en suites, and powered and unpowered camping sites. The park’s two undercover barbecue areas are ideal for a big cook-up with family and friends and the kiosk and coffee shop within the park let you sit back and relax, while someone else does the work. Pets are welcome with a large playing oval, great for an impromptu game of cricket or to give the dog a good run around. ANGLER’S GETAWAY Located in the heart of town, the Marlo Caravan Park and Motel is close by to all that the seaside town has to offer. Offering a range of accommodation options, visitors have a choice of self-contained two and three bedroom motel units as well as deluxe cabins with full kitchen facilities, colour television with DVD player and linen supplied. Pets are welcome, though not in the accommodation facilities. Managers, Georgie and Mark, welcome visitors to Marlo, whether they’re new to the region or have been returning to Marlo for generations, and love listening to the tales of others, especially if they’re fishing related. MARLO SPIRIT CAPTURED Centrally located and within easy walking distance of some of Marlo’s top spots, Tabbara Lodge is a place owners, Tanya Coleman and Chris Coulton, absolutely love. It has been in Tanya’s family since 1987, the couple taking it on themselves in 2008. Tabbara Lodge’s boutique style accommodation offers four self-contained units sleeping up to 18 people, ideal for families and small groups, with kitchens that are well-appointed and ceiling fans and split system heating/cooling to keep you comfortable year-round. Its beautiful garden setting boasts an undercover barbecue area, chiminea and a salt-water swimming pool. It’s pet friendly, too.
