Bermagui has a well deserved reputation for its fishing and was initially put on the map by renowned American author Zane Grey
Bermagui was made famous as a game fishing port due in great part to the visits in the 1930s of American author Zane Grey. With the continental shelf just 20km off shore, the closest point to the Australian mainland, this means warm northerly currents flow very close to the shore bringing an abundance of all types of fish close to the coast. Charter a boat for big game or deep sea and reef fishing. Launch your own vessel or hire a boat and venture out on the river and surrounding lakes. Buy some locally grown oysters and prawns or some of the day’s catch – it doesn’t get much fresher or tastier.
