About Bermagui

A peaceful Sapphire Coast town famous for its fishing, Bermagui is nestled around a safe, all-weather harbour dating from the 1830s. With the continental shelf only 20 km offshore, this area is known for exceptional deep-sea fishing and great local fishing tours.

Fishing in the nearby river, lakes and estuaries is also very popular. Close to Bermagui is Wallaga Lake, one of the largest coastal lakes in NSW, an area of outstanding natural beauty with special significance for the Aboriginal people of the region. This is a tranquil area that is great for swimming, boating and bushwalking. There are three caravan parks, situated around the lake.

Nearby you will find the fascinating Montreal Goldfield. This well-preserved example of alluvial diggings from the 1880s demonstrated the painstaking work prospectors would endure as they dig and sifted through mud, sand and gravel.

Bermagui also offers surfing, water sports and bushwalking at the surrounding beaches and national parks. Just 7 km south of Bermagui you’ll find Cuttage Beach and Lake where you can swim, surf and fish in the ocean, and the calm clear waters of the lake are ideal for canoeing or enjoying a family paddle.

There are also plenty of beautiful coastal walks to explore. Take time to walk the family-friendly Mimosa Rocks Walking Track, an easy scenic walk that ends in dramatic views. The impressive Mumbulla Falls nearby are also splendid viewing.

There’s also a designated nude beach Armands Beach, or you can swim the pristine waters of Blue Pool, a natural rock pool off Pacific Drive.
