A peaceful town famous for its fishing, Bermagui is the place to catch yellow fin tuna and the famed black marlin. The continental shelf is just 20 kilometres offshore – its closest point to the Australian mainland – meaning there’s exceptional deep-sea fishing to be done.
Nearby Wallaga Lake is one of the largest coastal lakes in the State and an area of outstanding natural beauty. It holds special significance for the Aboriginal people of the area.
There’s an active community of local artists in town and an extensive calendar of exhibitions and festivals.
Don’t miss Montreal Goldfield on Wallaga Lake Road and be sure to take a tour of this significant historic site from the 1880s.
Surfing, water sports and bushwalking can be done at the surrounding beaches and national parks.
Nearby, Bega and Merimbula are well worth a visit.
