Simply inspiring on the Sapphire Coast

A destination that borders on perfection, many are now discovering this haven at the northern entrance to the Sapphire Coast

Bermagui hugs the edges of its spectacular harbour and nestles under the shadow of Gulaga (Dromedary Mountain). A small and vibrant coastal town, offering boutique services and attractions, many unique to this area.

Bermagui is famous for its deep sea and game fishing – including yellow fin tuna and marlin – and estuary fishing in the surrounding rivers and lakes.

Swim, surf, go sailing, water skiing, kayaking, diving or snorkelling at pristine beaches and safe shallow waterways. Just north of the town, Wallaga Lake is ideal for all types of water sports.

Experience magnificent scenery and coastal bush walks in the nearby national parks and state forests. Don’t miss the renowned Blue Pool and Camel Rock, quiet beaches or a guided tour of the historic Montreal Goldfield.

For some retail therapy, wander the boutique shops through the township, at the Bermagui Fishermen’s Wharf complex and further along over the Bermagui River bridge. You will be sure to find something that takes your fancy, a special gift or a memento of your visit.

You will be spoilt for choice with the variety of dining styles. Seafood (of course), Italian, Asian, modern Australian, a la carte, bistro style pub and club meals, pizza and takeaway, cafes and waterside eateries and wine bar.

There is an amazing calendar of festivals and events held in Bermagui – of note there is ReBoot in Bermagui, the Four Winds Festival, Bermagui Seaside Fair and Sculpture Bermagui. The Sapphire Coast and Bermagui has an active community of local artists who exhibit through a network of studios and galleries throughout the year.

Bermagui offers a range of accommodation – in town, out of town, beachside, lakeside or in the bush. There are motels up to 4 star, beautiful B&Bs up to 4.5 star, self-contained townhouses, apartments, cottages, flats, homes and backpacker bunkhouse rooms. There are four caravan parks, all on the water’s edge and all with excellent facilities, offering camping and caravan sites, on site vans, cottages, studio units and deluxe cabins.

Bermagui, northern coastal gateway to Australia’s Coastal Wilderness … explore, experience, imagine … simply inspiring and beautifully uncivilised.
