Furniture, household objects, diaries, letters, scrapbooks, photographs and clothes allow a very personal insight into a more private world of the family. It is unusual for a house to be occupied by the same family for such a length of time, even in rural areas. Meroogal has survived to make its contribution to the study of our social history.

Seats are placed along the walk and at the lookout. The runway at HMAS Albatross may also be viewed from the lookout. There are some good local bushwalks within the Nowra district, notably Bens Walk which is an easy, shady and well-graded riverbank walk winding beside the Shoalhaven River, affording excellent views of the local district. On the bank of the Shoalhaven River in North Nowra is the Wildlife Park which offers over 100 species of Australian wildlife.

HopDog brews hops-centric beers and artisanal ales, focusing on quality ingredients and attention to detail. HopDog is an 800 litre, independent nano brewery located on the South Coast of NSW. HopDog is an ale only brewery. Head brewer Tim Thomas brings 13 years of professional brewing experience, having brewed previously for Lord Nelson and Five Islands Brewing Company, and has seen the emergence and rise of the Australian craft beer industry. The craft brewing industry brings with it food matching and opening a flood of food preparations using beers - cuisine de la biere - and brewing with ingredients normally used for cooking. Oak barrels, gingerbreads, coffee, and seasonal fruits all have a place in the HopDog larder. With 14 years' experience as a chef, Tess has the experience and knowledge of flavours and food matching to help refine the final product, and sort the brewery into a well-oiled machine.
