Word of the Day – 21 October 2017: Merimbula.


Welcome to the new regular feature on my blog – WOTD. Each day a new word will be suggested as the word of the day, which could either be an already existing (but rarely used) word or may be a completely made-up one. There will be a short definition and, ideally, an example of how the word would be used in everyday conversation.

I encourage anyone to provide their own words, either in the comments below or by linking their posted word to this blog. Don’t forget the definition or maybe when it should be used.

So, today’s word is: Merimbula (Proper Noun).

Pronounced: Meh-rim-biu-lah.

Today’s word is the name of a place – a quite beautiful place – on the coast of New South Wales, Australia. (Not to be confused with a Marimba, which is a wooden percussion instrument similar to a Xylophone!) 😉

I just think it’s a lovely sounding name – a happy kind of place. 🙂

Eg:  Merimbula is a coastal town in southern New South Wales, Australia. Its beaches include Merimbula Main Beach, with surf breaks over a sandbank, and Short Point, a popular whale-watching spot. Merimbula Boardwalk hugs the shores of Merimbula Lake. Northwest of the centre, Potoroo Palace is a wildlife sanctuary with wombats, echidnas and kangaroos. Surrounding towns include: Pambula, Millingandi and Berrambool. (I swear i’m not making this up!)
