    Go fishing or just wander around the boat harbour

    Charter boats, Bermagui
    1 more image

    The coastal steamers are long gone, but you still can walk around the fleets of fishing and charter boats.

    If you would like to try fishing, either game or reef fishing, there are plenty of boat charter operators who would be happy to provide a trip and all the necessities.

    It would probably be a good idea to pre-book: the contact is the Bermagui Visitor Info Centre.

    Swim in the Blue Pool

    Blue Pool, Bermagui
    2 more images

    Bermagui has two excellent tide-filled swimming pools among the rocks – one for adults and one for children, known collectively as 'The Blue Pool'. Apart from safety and fresh salt water, the Blue Pool also features spectacular views of the coast. It was financed for the town by a wealthy benefactor, William Dickenson, who moved there to retire in the 1930s and whose name has been given to the nearby point.

    Be warned though, that the Blue Pool can be somewhat less safe should there be heavy seas breaking over the rocks: it may then be prudent to swim elsewhere, or to find some other activity.

    Rockfishing is not for the inexperienced

    Rockfishing at Bermagui

    Rockfishing is a common pursuit on the rocky headlands of Australia’s coasts. It can bring excellent results, but also can be perilous – particularly if seas are high. If you are inexperienced, seek expert advice before trying it: this is not a recommended way to feature in news headlines!

    The headlands on the south coast at Bermagui are popular rock fishing spots

    Bermagui's 'Mystery Object'
    1 more image

    This interesting steel object appeared on the grass verge, adjacent to the boat harbour not long ago. Apparently it has caused quite a degree of local controversy – not least about what it is supposed to represent.

    I think my title would be ’Swirling into infinity’, but feel free to use your imaginations!

    Swim at sheltered Horseshoe Bay

    Horseshoe Bay, Bermagui

    Horseshoe Bay is immediately across the main street of Bermagui from the shopping centre, with adjacent parks and playing fields. It is sheltered from most weather and sea conditions, making it ideal for children.

    Those more interested in surfing have a choice of nearby Beares (just south of Blue Pool) , Haywards or Mooreshead beaches.

    The second photo will expand into a panorama if you click on it.
