The locality of Brogo lies towards the northern end of the beautiful Bega Valley, approximately 20 kilometres from the township of Bega itself. Wadbilliga National Park provides a stunning backdrop to the west, of which 400 square kilometres is catchment for the pristine waters of the Brogo River which meanders through the heart of the town.

One of the features of the area is the stunning Brogo Dam, which was built in 1976 to provide water to the dairy industry and is contained within the Brogo wilderness area and the southern section of Wadbilliga National Park.

The park protects rugged coastal escarpment and plateau areas surrounding the Wadbilliga, Tuross and Brogo Rivers. The Brogo Dam is situated in the southern region of the park and offers picnic facilities and a ramp from which to launch your canoe or row boat. Power boats are also welcome in this area. You can hire canoes to explore the Dam and gain access to remote pockets of bushland.

Explore tranquil rainforest gullies, and the rugged picturesque surrounds. Sheer cliffs overhang the water with rock orchids and ferns, while the surrounding bush harbours many native birds and animals.
